Influencing the dance floor for 39 years MR Dance Music aka DJ Captain Kirk aka Ronnie Matthews
 
Ronnie Matthews, the head of STARFLEET MUSIC Record Pool, is celebrating 39 years in the music business as a whole, from his days as a Record Store buyer,  Spinning Vinyl at the clubs under the name DJ Captain Kirk to sitting in the Captain’s Chair at STARFLEET MUSIC ,  both names  he received the blessings on from Gene Roddenberry’s son. Best put by Ronnie himself “Well, I’m an old Trekkie. I saw the original Star Trek back in the 60’s & I always wanted to be Captain Kirk. Throughout my early DJing career I had not given a thought to having a DJ name/handle, so when one of the radio stations, WCKZ Kiss-102, asked to do their mix shows, the PD asked what my DJ name was, “DING”, the light went off in my head & DJ Captain Kirk was born. I’ve had a ton of fun with that name, plus it helped spawn my company name as well, Starfleet Music Pool. I have all sorts of items given to me from companies associated with Paramount/Universal, even have a drop by Gene Roddenberry’s son, Rod Roddenberry, who is in charge of the franchise now, saying thanks to Starfleet Music Pool DJs. You’ve gotta love it.”
