The loneliest DJ in the world – everyone loves him!
Mike Litt is not just any radio DJ; he is a real cult, thousands of people love him. For his music, for his voice, for his words. And yet he is still the loneliest DJ in the world.
The broadcast with which he became famous starts, and which gave him his name, starts every Christmas Eve at 7:03 p.m. He sits alone in the studio, plays records and talks to his listeners all over Germany. Whoever has heard his programme knows what real magic is. But what does Mike Litt do on the 364 days of the years? And how did he become the loneliest DJ in the world in the first place?
In his book, Mike Litt tells his way to music and radio via the local meat market, a Benedictine boarding school and a restaurant chain. And he naturally tells what happens during the highlight of his and our year; when it starts snowing and we devotedly turn on the radio to listen to his voice…
“Hallo, it’s me! Mike! I play music for you. My girlfriend just left me and it would be great if you would listen to me.”
Mike Litt was born in 1967 in Falls Church near Washington D.C. and has lived since earliest childhood in Germany. Still in school, he began working as a journalist and DJ.
