Most people are familiar with the phrase “Time, Talent and Treasure.” We are often exhorted to give of our time, talent or treasure usually in service to some cause or worthy project. Ideally, we should give all three but are encouraged to give in at least one category.
At a recent meeting of the Atlanta chapter, the group reflected on the contributions of one of our members, Wayne Hosin who is better known as DJ Migrane. Wayne attended KC from 1979 to 1985 and got into the disc jockey business in 1986 when he “just fell in love with music.”
Wayne learned his craft from the best. He was a DJ for the late Winston “Merritone’ Blake and often took control at the Turntable Club on Red Hills Road whenever Merritone was traveling. He would eventually migrate to the US at first settling in Miami.
DJ Migrane has been a fixture at the Atlanta chapter’s fundraising events ever since he moved here over nine years ago. The most recent George Thompson Memorial Christmas Party was no exception. Migrane’s music had everyone on the floor moving to the rhythms and the beat. They are still talking about the great time they enjoyed.
At fundraisers, Wayne is usually one of the first to arrive and set up his “huge” speakers and other equipment. And he is one of the last to leave in the wee hours of the morning after disassembling his equipment and loading his van.
The Atlanta chapter recently recorded the best fundraising year in its history. And it is only fitting that we recognize the contributions made by Wayne DJ Migrane to this success. He has truly given of his time, talent and treasure.
Wayne lives in Lawrenceville, Georgia with his wife Mischell and son Christopher.
