Harry Frank Towers / On Air Mix-show
From March of 1983 till November of 1991 Harry was a working disc jockey. He worked an average of two nights a week and with the exception of the month of January 1989, was never out of work. Some of the clubs he spun at included The China Club in Manhattan, Abracadabra in Staten Island, Excuses in Yonkers, Casablanca in New Jersey and the Spectrum in Brooklyn, (a.k.a. 2001 where Saturday Night Fever was filmed). Highlights of his DJing career included being one of the very first disc jockeys in New York to play House music, programming Soca & Dancehall music to a largely non-Caribbean clientele & breaking Euro Dance music. In 1992 he gave up a regular spinning schedule but continues to spin at special events all over the United States. Most notable of which were guest spots at the Sound Factory in San Francisco, (during the Billboard Dance Music Summit), the Oz nightclub on Bourbon Street in New Orleans (for Memorial Day Weekend festivities), the Paragon in Miami (for the Winter Music Conference), at the Déjà vu nightclub in Atlantic City (for the DJ Times Convention), Cherry’s on Fire Island, The Stonewall in Manhattan and Club Deco in Philadelphia, Krash @ Deep in Manhattan and The End Up in San Francisco. In the last few years Harry has explored Hot Mixing on the radio. His first mix show was on The Buzz outta Atlantic City back in the day but here in New York Harry was heard on Saturday nights on Mix 102.7. It was the highest rated show on the station! Harry is now a featured Hot Mixer on 10 radio stations, including Internet powerhouse Strictly Dance Radio powered by 1 Club FM. His most exciting mix show moments were when he had the chance of presenting his spinning abilities live on the radio, at WKIE in Chicago from the Circuit Nightclub and then in Nashville spinning live for an outdoor festival called Riverfest based in Clarkesville on their local top 40 station. Harry also had the pleasure of mixing two compilations while he was at Popular Records. He mixed the second installment of the Gold compilation series “Dance Hits Supermix” as well as “Good Time Disco Dance Hits.” In September 2004 he released a compilation entitled “Mix Show Hits One” on TVI Records and Filmworks. That compilation did incredibly well in Miami in particular! As for Live gigs, he rarely accepts them but he never turns down spinning at a Charity Event or a chance to spin at a Music Conference. Every year he heads out to Chicago to spin a benefit for a battered woman’s shelter. Harry says, “It’s for a food drive and we have a packed house each year and fill an entire van full of food!” The tag line of my promotion company Deet Promotions is “Making the World a better place one beat per minute at a time, and events like this allow me to do just that in the most organic way. Special thanx to Georgie Porgie for putting together a stellar line up every year!”
