Mixing Desk Belonging To World's First DJ Goes To Auction

A home-made mixing deck, created by the worlds first disc jockey is set to go under the hammer in Boston.

Ron Diggins, who died last year at the age of 90, has been dubbed as the worlds first disc-jockey by DJ Magazine.

He created the mixing deck out of coffin wood.

It was the first mobile disco that used a 25-watt amp and a wind-up gramophone playing 78s on two turntables to entertain Land Army girls and Italian POWs at a village hall in 1947.

The equipment named Diggola is expected to rake in thousands of pounds at a sale. Link
