Jimmy Jay


Jimmy Jay’s career as a DJ took off like a rocket even before he completed his coursework at the Career Academy School of Broadcasting, run by Red Sox radio announcer Curt Gowdy. His school was located on Boylston Street in the same building that housed WMEX studios—a precursor of things to come.

Jimmy Jay, known as “The DJ of the Stars,” is the voice and host of the internationally syndicated radio shows Rewind,  The Rewind Dance Party, the Rewind 1970’s Top 10 Countdown, and the Rewind 1980’s Top 10 Countdown.

“The DJ of the Stars” has become famous from doing events with the biggest names in entertainment and most know him on a first name basis. From cruise ships to the Academy Awards Jimmy Jay has done it all.  From Sock Hops to Hip Hop, his mind is a book of knowledge!
