Been sitting on this one for a few weeks waiting for some unreleased music to come out. So although it's November, this is my "October Surprise!" Enjoy!Disco Madness (September 2017)

The first time I ever played music for people to dance to at a party was in June of 1977, during the rise of disco. I was 14 years old, and disco music would remain a major part of the soundtrack of my teenage years. Over the course of 40 years as a DJ, I believe great dance music has been made in every decade, but I will always have a soft spot in my heart for disco. I was in a disco mood the other night and hit record, and this is what came out. No remakes or remixes--all original music from the '70s and '80s. I hope you enjoy the tunes...and dance!

Like everyone I have my challenges, issues and disappointments, but I'm feeling really good and optimistic right now about where I am and where I'm going in my music and law careers and with family life. I feel truly blessed and have far more than I deserve. I hope you enjoy my latest, "Feeling Free."

Decided to record one more before year end just to say thank you to the people who follow and enjoy my podcast. I'm touched all the time by stories of how my mixes get you through the work day or through your workout, through illness or even through law school. I sincerely appreciate all who take the time to listen. Enjoy the Gift!Tribe & Tambor Cruise Mix (November 2016)

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!
