The Greatest Disco Djs in the World 

The  official and original Disco Dj Hall of Fame™ was created by Marty Angelo in 2002.  It was donated to the United States Library of Congress 06/17/2005 as part of the Disco Step-by-Step(r) TV show's website. See original list below.

It all started with the disco beat and mix. The innovated djs who are members of this hall of fame deserve all the credit for what happened...  and continues to happen in the dance music field. 

Thank you for leading the way into this exciting musical art form.



* Official Members * Honorary Members * Disco Gold *



Please note that the Honorary Members category allowed for non-working Djs who contributed to the Disco Dj record movement in many other ways such as record producers, promoters, distributors, etc.  They all helped the Djs in one way or another and deserve to be recognized.

The Disco Dj names listed on the back of both Disco Gold Lps are considered Official Members. 

These lists certainly do not include everyone who is due recognition. It was always considered a "work in progress".
