Getting new music into the hands of radio DJs was the way artists got discovered in the old days. Radio then lost ground club DJs and then to video DJs and now to streaming services and social media. However, the role of the DJ has never gone away. I was reading an article today that touched upon the stripper industry in Atlanta. They mentioned that some of the strippers have king-maker type status. Studios are apparently finding strippers and the strip club DJs to be a great avenue to get new songs and artists discovered. The article wasn't focused on the music scene so it is really not worth posting it here. I just found that the king-maker tidbit interesting. I guess streaming services and FM radio have become so corporate, they are no longer a great avenue for introducing new talent. Perhaps this means going to strip clubs can be a legitimate business expense for DJs.
