87-year-old DJ keeps on filling the dancefloors

Heading out to nightclubs may be thought of by many as a hobby that is only meant for the young, but one West Bromwich DJ is showing the world that it’s all about being young at heart that really counts.DJ record decks

Albert Taylor is now 87 years of age, but his advancing years have done nothing to suppress his appetite for great music and getting people dancing, as he continues to spin the discs at many venues around the West Midlands.

Thought to be the oldest DJ in the country, Albert provides the soundtrack for hundreds of similarly spritely revellers across the area, with his most regular gig being at the Goldfield Court housing complex, where he has also just hosted a Valentine’s Day disco.

Albert says that he has no plans to stop treating Black Country residents who usually rely on stairlifts to get around but also enjoy the occasional dance to his energetic sets, although he admits that he has now sold his disco lights!
