ABOUT DJ POLISHED SOLID
At a very early age, DJ Polished Solid’s uncles exposed her to a wide range of music. On any given day, they would play anything from edgar winter to yes to parliament / funkadelic to slave to lynyrd skynyrd. Today this is known as “genre hopping.”
Since 2005, DJ Polished Solid has been genre-hopping on her an online radio show, No Turn Unstoned. Since 2016, DJ Polished Solid has put No Turn Unstoned on the backburner to concentrate on her love of organizing music symposia and producing podcasts. However, she continues to post mixes for No Turn Unstoned on special occasions.
She has curated the following symposia since 2017:
- Upcoming in 2022, Prince symposia, 3-day, hybrid #TripleThreat40 for 40 years of Prince’s 1999, The Time’s What Time Is It?, and Vanity 6’s debut, and 1-day, virtual #SexyMF30 for 30 years of Prince’s Symbol album

ABOUT NO TURN UNSTONED
Based around a specific theme for every mix since 2005, the format of no turn unstoned is just darn good music of ANY genre sequenced eclectically. The usual suspects are electronica, hip-hop, house, rock, soul, dubstep, drum ‘n bass, jazz, reggae, blues, pop, and a little bit of country now and then. (no opera, though:)
