31 years of breaking records and keeping the Universe Dancing! Ronnie Matthews aka DJ Captain Kirk sitting in the Captains Chair of STAR FLEET MUSIC RECORD POOL!
With 47 years in the music biz with 31 of that has been at the helm of STAR FLEET MUSIC RECORD POOL. 400 thousand DJs from around the Globe are registered with the world’s most prestigious record pool.
It all began with the job of Record Store buyer, evolving into Spinning Vinyl at the clubs under the name DJ Captain Kirk to founding STARFLEET MUSIC record pool, both names he received the blessings on from Gene Roddenberry’s son. Best put by Ronnie himself “Well, I’m an old Trekkie. I saw the original Star Trek back in the 60’s & I always wanted to be Captain Kirk. Throughout my early DJing career I had not given a thought to having a DJ name/handle, so when one of the radio stations, WCKZ Kiss-102, asked to do their mix shows, the PD asked what my DJ name was, “DING”, the light went off in my head & DJ Captain Kirk was born. I’ve had a ton of fun with that name, plus it helped spawn my company name as well, Starfleet Music Pool. I have all sorts of items given to me from companies associated with Paramount/Universal, even have a drop by Gene Roddenberry’s son, Rod Roddenberry, who is in charge of the franchise now, saying thanks to Starfleet Music PoolDJs. You’ve gotta love it.”
He is MR DANCE MUSIC! Ronnie has been successful at making people dance to music they have never heard before, helping to shape the dance scene for 47 years by getting the newest and latest into the hands that spin it.
