From time to time Magic City Radar will shine a spotlight on Alabama talent on the rise. This week’s spotlight is on DJ Acoff.

Magic City Radar asked: “How did you get your start in the business”?

DJ Acoff answered: “While attending Alabama State University, I used a financial aid refund check to buy DJ equipment, including turn tables, and threw a party. The turnout was such that I felt I could make a living doing it, and I began throwing parties at other colleges around the state. As a result, I still do it today.

Magic City Radar asked: “What are your upcoming projects”?

DJ Acoff answered: “I have several events in the month of October, including an event at Club Skyy, UNA’s homecoming, and an event at the Souhside Music Hall. I was just named the “face” of Livello Men’s Clothing, and I landed a speaking role in an upcoming movie”.

Also, in our interview, DJ Acoff discussed the heavy influence music and entertainment is having in the Magic City downtown area. Magic City Radar would like to thank DJ Acoff for his time and insight about the current entertainment movement in Birmingham. We look forward to watching him as he continues to climb the ladder of success in the entertainment realm as well as his other endeavors. We look forward to talking to him again soon.
