DJ ShOw was born & raised in the Bronx, New York, the birthplace of Hip Hop. His love and passion for music permeates through every mix. At 13 years old, inspired by family friend DJ Joey O & greats such as Kid Capri, Funkmaster Flex, DJ S&S & DJ Camilo, DJ ShOw’s only goal was to bring the masses the best music the world has to offer with his unique style & flavor. DJ ShOw started spinning at house parties and then later graduated to full blown stadium-style DJing, playing music everywhere he could in between. In 2003, DJ ShOw arrived in Albany, NY to attend SUNY-University at Albany, where he earned his Bachelor’s Degree. During his college career, he honed his skills as the Urban Music Director at his Alma Mater’s college radio station and spinning at various clubs within New York State, splitting time between Albany and New York City. In 2008, DJ ShOw planted his flag in the Capital District, making it his mission to blow away crowds at every venue he has ever stepped foot in. The energy that DJ ShOw brings every time he touches the set is unmatched. You can catch the excitement every weeknight at 7pm . Tune in to Hot 99.1fm to hear the Money Talks Ent Repper go in!
