About DJRob

What’s up, everyone?!  I’m the Rob in djrobblog.com and this is my music blogsite.  I now reside in Chicago but have lived all over the country and overseas during my nearly five decades on this planet.  In those years, the one thing that has never left me is my love of music of nearly all genres.  I love to research it, listen to it and write about it.

Back in the mid-2000s, I wrote a weekly commentary titled “Ol’ Skool Music News & Trivia,” which basically amounted to me writing a bunch of articles and e-mailing them to about 150 of my interested friends.  It included trivia contests, music chart facts, and opinion pieces, with a focus on 1980s R&B and pop music.  Work demands caused me to put down OSMN&T in 2007, but my calling never left.

So now I’m back and here it is, djrobblog.com, where music news and trivia live!  This music blogsite will cover various aspects of popular music from the early 20th century to now.  I hope you enjoy the articles and commentary, special countdowns, playlists (via Spotify), along with other soon-to-be-added features.  Feel free to comment and give suggestions.  Because, at djrobblog.com, all opinions – humble or otherwise – are welcomed!

You can also reach me at djrob61466@gmail.com or on Twitter or Facebook.

Now return to the home page, find your favorite category and let’s get started!

Your host,

DJRob

  1. To quote Usher, “The DJ got us falling in love all over again” with music. Looking forward to the journey through the decades….

  2. Good luck on this site big brother. I’m a true to life Metalhead so if anyone has questions or want to chit chat on this, I will definitely chime in. 1. Metallica 2. Lamb of God after that Anthrax, Black Label Society, Slayer, Arch Enemy, God Forbid to name a few.

  3. Rob……………music changed – a bit – after disco was declared ‘dead’. As disco music is an identifiable genre, what would you consider one of the last disco songs?

  4. DJ Rob, this is definitely a 180° turn from your day time job. I have a love for writing also. However, I am not much of a music person. My old school picks would be the group “Midnight Star” and O’Brian’s – You and I. Good luck to you.
