DJ Doug Yoel
My name is Doug Yoel, and since childhood I’ve been obsessed with records and all kinds of great music.
Setting moments to music has become my passion, and my life’s work.
In my early teens, I began spinning records publicly, and performing at parties and weddings. As a high school kid in the 90s, I got to join a celebrated NY rock radio station, WBAB-FM, as a DJ and radio personality.
I earned a music degree, and spent the early 2000’s running indie record labels. This lead to some amazing musical experiences, including the chance to produce records for some of my rock, jazz and blues heroes.
I got to pick songs for the albums, and put together the musical elements. Some of our projects had the great fortune to get recognized with awards and accolades – even a few Grammy nods!
All of this reminded me how much I loved putting music together as a DJ. In 2012, I took to the airwaves again, ultimately becoming a weekend DJ on WDST in Woodstock, NY. I presently host and program the Blues Break show on Sunday Evenings.
Over the last several years, I’ve had the honor of mixing music at some exquisite events. I take great pride and enjoyment in bringing just the right musical ambience to your occasion. Putting together a collection of music – based on your vision – and watching it come alive on your dance floor, and on your guests faces…it is an amazing feeling!
