I was honored to participate in a wonderful program tonight at the Chicago History Museum: "The House That Chicago Built." To mark the occasion, I recorded a little "classics" mix earlier this week. Some disco, some Italo, and some house classics. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks again to CHM and to all who came out and to all who keep house music alive!

Well, it's Christmas Eve. Lots going on today, but I took a little time out today to record a special mix to say "thank you" to the followers and supporters of my Podcast over the years. I am truly thankful and humbled by your support and the kind words you often express online and in person. Music is to be shared and it's power to bring us together and make us happy is such an awesome thing. Thank you, and Merry Christmas to all!

My latest session last night. Got a lot of suggestions of classics, but just wasn't in the mood to go there. A couple nods to the old school, but I'm in the here and now. You really have to be if you want to be in this game in any meaningful way. Hope you enjoy the tunes.

AK"Late Night Sessions" (July 2013)

It's fun playing all the old school stuff at the annual Chosen Few Picnic, but soulful house music is alive 364 other days a year. Please support today's house music artists and producers who, along with the DJs, are keeping this music and art form alive. Was up late last night just playing some tunes. Some brand new music and some of my newer school favorites. Enjoy.

I have been inspired by so many people and things lately, and feeling very blessed. Just turned 50 and have no doubt that the best is still ahead of me. So happy to have music fully back in my life. Hope you enjoy this one. Sorry, no downloads on this one.
Welcome to the Podcast of DJ Alan King! Alan is one of Chicago’s original house music DJs and a member of the legendary DJ crew The Chosen Few™ (Wayne Williams, Alan King, Jesse Saunders, Tony Hatchett, Andre Hatchett, Terry Hunter and Mike Dunn). In a 2007 interview discussing his return to Chicago, Grammy Award winning DJ and producer Frankie Kunckles observed: "One of the best things about returning to Chicago is catching up with some of the home-grown talent. I like to hear the spin that some of them put on house music - that's what sparks me. The brilliant Andre Hatchett is the perfect example. He is one of two guys in Chicago who have the biggest impact on me. The other is Alan King. They are the truest to the house music form, yet there is soul, personality and individuality in what they're doing. They're the real thing."
In the late '70s and early '80s, the Chosen Few DJs were among the DJs primarily responsible for spreading the soulful brand of dance music that came to be known as "House Music" at legendary Chicago night spots, including The Loft, First Impressions, Sauer's and the Playground. Still together more than 35 years later and with the addition of their youngest members, legendary DJs and producers Terry Hunter and Mike Dunn, the Chosen Few DJs make regular DJ appearances in Chicago, New York, Miami and around the world and bring you the annual Chosen Few Old School Reunion Picnic every July in Chicago, one of the largest house music festival events in the world. Started in 1990 as a "reunion" of the Chosen Few DJs and friends from the early house music days, the Chosen Few Picnic is now the largest single-day music festival in the City of Chicago and attracts more than 40,000 house music lovers from throughout the United States and around the world.
With Alan's Podcast, you'll hear the latest, rare and exclusive mixes from Alan spanning more than 25 years, featuring Alan's unique presentation of the latest in soulful house music as well as disco and house classics. Enjoy!
