The radio DJ known as "The Electrifying Mojo" is as much a part of Detroit electronic music culture as the techno artist is. A documentary about the cat that inspired local DJs, musicians and homebodies will be shown at Planet Ant (Hamtramck), Friday June 15 at midnight. More info about The Cycles of the Mental Machine can be read at Submerge.
Mojo (born Charles Johnson) was loved for his "no rules" approach to his playlist. Listening to his shows were a kin to the golden age of radio- when he was on, your ear was glued. It would take about 10 minutes for his damn mothership to land at the beginning of his show, but that junk sounded so sweet! Prince, the Time, Run DMC, B-52s, Bus Boys, Cybertron!!!
