From stealing his parents Motown 45s to spin on his Fisher Price Turntable as a young child back in the 70s.
To using a splitter with two Walkmans to mix tapes at house parties in the 80s (Then moving to Discmans in the 90s and eventually to iPods in the 2000s)
Diablo has always done what he needs to do to get the people UP on their feet to get DOWN and boogie.
Going mobile with his trike and/or trailer at Burning Man, or Pedalpalooza as well as some local street fairs and parades, he'd blow minds (and Bubbles) while rocking the spirit with some radical "Time-Based Art" accompanied by a Funky-ass musical soundtrack.
Taken under-wing by one of his favorite humans, fellow dancer and all around amazing DJ, Manoj, after hearing Diablo play (the old school way, with two iPods) at a mutual friend's Birthday Party, Manoj offered to begin training to help Diablo improve his transitions (that is, learn to beat match) and after many years and much practice Diablo -Dirty Diablo is beginning to take it to the next level . . .
Bitten hard by the community radio bug after getting on air BMIR - Burning Man Information Radio (Black Rock City, Nevada -94.5 FM), he's carried that passion back to his home town and the local Listener-Powered, Non-Corporate Community Radio Station - KBOO Community Radio, (Portland, Oregon- 90.7 FM) where he is starting a new biweekly late night show: The Sacred Circle "TEMENOS" -Radio Show -

Humpty Dumpty fell down that's his hard time
Jack B. Nimble what nimble and he was quick
But Jam Master cut faster Jack's on Jay's dick
Now Little Bo Peep cold lost her sheep
And Rip van Winkle fell the hell asleep
And Alice chillin somewhere in Wonderland
Jack's servin Jill a bucket in his hand
And Jam Master Jay's making out our sound
The turntables might wobble but they don't fall down . . .
. . .And like all fairy tales end
You'll see Jay again my friend!
I started at KBOO about 10 years ago in the KBOO Youth Collective making and producing radio segments. Currently I am a member of Circle A Radio, a volunteer instructor for our beginning radio classes, and am filling in for the Pickled Feather Express the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month.
I have been a KBOO member for nearly ten years and began volunteering with John Talley, host of "Indian World" in 2005 as an intern completing my interdisciplinary studies bachelors degree from Marylhurst University. I am fortunate to be able to consult with John as a radio mentor, friend and Mohawk elder. I am a Cherokee Nation of Ok enrolled tribal member and I have some Osage and Choctaw in my line. Although I grew up in Ok I have been in the Portland area for long time. I have ties with NAYA, NICWA, NARA and PPS Indian Education project and other Native American groups. My interest in producing this show is to connect folks in the Portland and surrounding area for a stronger Native American Community.
DR.J has been in/on Radio for over a decade and Djing for longer. Spending most of his free time traveling the globe & collecting audio gems along the way he has assembled one of the most eclectic collections ever known. KBOO is one of the last places where WE can still hear and play music and news that matters!! Radio does not have to come with commercials or an agenda. We like to call it "The Best Music you've Never Heard"
