... The difference between ignorance and awareness is wisdom
We don't know where we are going unless we know where we've been
Without that knowledge... history is gone with the wind ...


AUTHOR:  Jan Pawul - better known worldwide as Yahu Pawul or Yahudeejay – was a “hero deejay” behind the Iron Curtain in the ultra-communist Poland of the 1970s. He was a first generation pioneer deejay and discotheque creator during the early days of disco and way beyond. But he paid a price for being an innovator, because the communist authorities persecuted him for his links and cooperation with deejays and other music industry movers and shakers in the free West.

Yahu Pawul is also a prominent historian of deejaying and the disco era. As a specialist media journalist, he is the creator and editor of http://www.djsportal.com - the No 1 worldwide disco and deejay history website, the largest and best site about the history of disco and deejays. It features more than 400 interviews, articles and thousands of unique photographs of the stars and icons of the disco era!

All his life, Yahu was opposed to the communists and the Polish deejays and organizations that collaborated with the oppressive regime. Like no one else in Poland, he popularized American disco music, artists, producers and culture – including R&B, Soul and Funky music. By doing this, he risked his freedom and even his life. He fought his own small and very private war against the communists and their agents. His anti-communist stance contributed in its own small way to the 1989 downfall of communism led by Lech Walensa, Solidarity and others.

In the 1970s and 1980s, Yahu was repeatedly stopped and interrogated by the Political Secret Police. The grotesque reasoning they used was that he "promoted misguided imperialist tricks hostile to the socialist homeland and aimed at distracting the Polish youth from their schooling and from working for the socialist fatherland". He is very lucky indeed to have stayed alive after so many "meetings" with the SB, the political secret police, who readily killed opponents of the totalitarian state via staged “accidents” and other devious means.

The communists confiscated his promotional vinyl records sent by record companies from the US and UK. He was forbidden to work in officially recognized Polish discos by the KRPD, the National Board of Disco Presenters, an oppressive organization created by the communists, which persecuted independent deejays. Its membership comprised most of the so-called “verified presenters”, who prostituted themselves to work for the state-controlled organization.

This was the peak of persecution for Yahu, an honest man, and a faithful professional deejay, driving forward the emerging idea of new-style disco clubs.

ALSO:
* He was a finalist in the First National Tournament of Discotheque Presenters in 1973 – so today he belongs to a tiny select group of legendary Polish deejays.

* In 1975, he had the honor of being the only Pole with honorary membership of NADD, the USA’s National Association of Disco Deejays, whose president was Robert J. Casey.

* Also in 1975, he had the honor of being the only Pole with honorary membership of NADJ, the UK’s National Association of Disc Jockeys, whose chairman was Ben Cree.

* He is the only Polish deejay to be a member of the DJ Hall of Fame or a member of the Pantheon of Most Significant and Meritorious World Deejays. And he is the only Polish deejay to attain the greatest honor and privilege that can be conferred on a professional deejay - global membership of the Disco Pioneers Hall of Fame!

His life passion, coming from the depths of his heart, is to save as much unique discotheque history material as possible for future generations.

This special electronic book / eBook includes a huge number of unique and rare articles, interviews with “disco era heroes” and thousands of historical illustrations, many of which you will never have seen before.
