Based in Columbus, Ohio, SoundChoiceDJ’s was started in 2008 by J.T. Michaels, an established radio/club/mobile DJ who is also a Buckeye native. He began his career in 1989 which happened naturally because of his passion for music. “Cassette tapes, vinyl, and CD’s were still very popular back then”, he says. He quickly amassed a fairly large music library. Obtaining the DJ gear came easy with the help of his father as he already had a PA system for his basement band. Everything came together perfectly. He was able to then DJ his first few graduation parties for friends that same year.
The following year, he was asked to DJ for Krogers, Co. and as his friends graduated, they soon called on J.T. Michaels to provide DJ services for their weddings. J.T. began working for his first radio station, 107.1 WNKO in 1990, and in 1995 was offered an on-air position with K95 (WHOK). It was around this same time that he began J.T. Entertainment and had his first website up & running.
When K95 was bought by Jacor Communications, it was the beginning of a major shake-up in Columbus radio. “Three country radio stations were suddenly operating out of our facility at The Continent…Country 98.9, K95, and strangely enough…Wink 107.1″, he says. J.T was oddly enough back on the frequency where it all started. Then on December 3rd, 1997, he left the country format to be an on-air personality for Sunny 95 (WSNY). However, with the number of mobile gigs increasing, missed weekends with his son, and the radio station demanding regular weekend shifts, J.T. made the difficult decision to leave FM radio and focus on his own DJ company.
In 1999, J.T. Michaels was one of the first professional entertainers in Central Ohio to begin DJ’ing via the laptop computer. This was done at various mobile events as well as his weekly Thursday night gig with WNCI’s Chris Davis at the Elephant Bar & Restaurant. He converted his entire music library over to MP3 format from CD, a ripping process that took weeks to complete. J.T. Michaels now has well over 60,000 songs available! With a Verizon 4G mobile internet connection always available, his music collection is virtually unlimited!
