Arthur’s Theme

In 1965, DJ Terry Noel was the resident at New York hotspot, Arthur. He is also the DJ credited with first “mixing” records.

One night, actor John Wayne approaches the booth and demands “Yellow Rose of Texas,” much in the same manner certain celebrities have demanded songs from me.


Terry Noel tells John Wayne that he indeed has that record with him, extracts the vinyl from his crate, snaps it in half, and tosses it.

John Wayne responds with “You faggot!” and storms away.

Recently, Black Book Magazine allowed me (and Stonerokk) to relate some of our fave DJ tales. Enjoy: Best Gig Yarns

Big up to a missing t-shirt that reads “Last Time I Checked, I was the DJ.”
