    DJ Mark Alsop – Moving forward, glancing back.

    DJ Mark Alsop has been a favourite DJ across Australia for 36 years. He started in Oxford Street, Sydney and is a valued member of the GLBT community. In this show he has some stories, dirt and music to share. So listen up and meet his dog, Boo Boo.

    Boo Boo isn’t spoilt. He’s just well looked after.

    Coming to you from Mark’s undisclosed location, it’s a podcast full of tales you might not have heard and just some of the music Mark loves. We perhaps answer that burning social issue; What is the gayest track ever?

    With decades of experience in the Sydney DJ box, here’s sure fire advice on the one thing NEVER to do in a club:

    Don’t type your request out in size five font on your phone that only a fifteen year old can read, then wave it around in front of the DJ booth like a monkey.

    You can see his backwash.

    His views on marriage:

    I’m a big homosexual. What would I be doing marrying a woman?

    AND finally find out how we feel about people asking for requests:

    People asking for requests… that never ends well.
