The oldest DJ arrived at his 90th anniversary

The veteran Ron Diggins, the first DJ in the world, had his 90th anniversary last week. Boston based DJ is considered by many the first person who really start everything, Ananova informs.

Ron Diggins made the first DJ console in 1949, customized by his own craft. Ron is a professional radio engineer and created a buzz with his first sound system called "Diggola": two decks, a sound mixer, lights, microphone, amplifier and 10 speakers.

Ron retired in 1995, when he had already played to 20.000 parties, comfortably making him the world's most experienced DJ. And what does the great man think of today's millionaire superstar DJs, who earn up to £20,000 for a single night's work? "I never knew how it would take off," he said, shaking his head. "The most I've ever charged is £50."
