Jim MacLaine started his Sheffield DJ career in the modest surroundings of Forgers Bar at Hallam University’s Collegiate Campus. Every Thursday night Jim would DJ whilst adding Quizzes, Caption Competitions and even Bingo to the mix for the Forgers regulars.
In 1995 Jim made the move to Stardust at the NMB and continued DJing at Stardust until its demise in 2006. After Stardust, Jim continued DJing at new Hallam nights Flirt and Pounded whilst also hosting a regular tea-time Friday Quiz, as Hallam Union took up residence in The Hubs. Jim has also been resident DJ in the 50s/60s/70s room at Sheffield University’s Pop Tarts night since 1998. Away from DJing, Jim is one of the founders of new website My Party Venue, a website for anyone in Sheffield looking for their own party venue.
