This great dj request story was posted by the late DJ AM on the Serato forums five years ago. Rest in peace. Submitted by Lauti.

In LA we usually DJ 4 hour sets„ 10pm till 2am (close) and I used to  get to work at 9:45pm to set up, then basically practice the 1st hour  while people were walking in. Well, at 10:15 I’d get the “PLAY BEYONCE  CRAZY IN LOVE” and I’d say “Its 10:15, you will hear it later I promise”  and of course the girl would frown (thinking its cute and i will fall  for it) and I’d just go back to practicing. 10:30 she would walk by and  look at me raising her eyebrows. 11pm she sends 2 of her friends up to  ask for the same song shile she watchs to see my reaction (cause of  course her ego let her think i was saying no to HER specifically) and I  just look at the 1st girl and say “I told your friend, i will play it  later” This is the reason I used to carry weak ass promo frisbee records  in the back of my crate. Cause come 11:15pm when the 1st girl comes  BACK (now with a few drinks in her) demanding I play it. I reach in the  back of my crate, pull out a frisbee record and say “You want Beyonce???  Huh?? YOU REALLY WANT IT?? (pull out frisbee 12” and SMASH it over my  kneee and hand her the 2 pieces) HERE MOFO, TAKE BEYONCE” they never  come back. I have my man man Mike B to thank for this drunkgirl jukeing  strategy.
