DJs aren’t DJs

DJs aren't DJs
Should we still call guys like this DJs? I can't imagine that they, for the most part, carry a stack of vinyl or plastic CDs around. I'm tempted to call them rhythm engineers, or perhaps composers; but then I'd probably get slapped and told that I'm being silly. :)

I took this photo at Vaudeville, a popular dinner/entertainment club in Cape Town.

    Could you imagine having to change the term with each new medium? Now days they might be called MP3Js or WMAJs or MKAJs. Just doesn’t roll off the tongue :)

    Thankfully Disc Jockey originally referred (and still does) to people who play recorded music (irrespective of medium) :)
