Aidan Stomdahl is an Edison 9th grade student who has been enjoying music before he was old enough to walk. At home, he would watch his dad spin records and pull himself up onto the table to lend a hand. His father is a local DJ and at age 7, Aidan was asked to help DJ at the “King and I”. 
 
In celebration of National Record Store Day, Saturday, April 17th, Aidan was asked to spin records at Electric Fetus located just south of downtown Minneapolis just hours before the musician, Prince arrived. Aidan plays percussions and piano. He is no stranger to performing in piano recitals at local churches. 
 
When asked what he enjoys most about being a disc jockey, he responded “I really enjoy listening to music from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. It’s not hard to play these songs from the playlist.” He doesn’t DJ very often but enjoys it when he does. 
 
Aidan grew up in Northeast and attended Marcy Open School from Kindergarten through 8th grade. When looking for a high school Aidan was happy to find Edison, “I knew when we first walked in the building that this was the school for me.” said Aidan. He is a member of Edison's chess team and plays in Edison's band. Aidan enjoys drawing and spending time outdoors. After graduation, he sees himself attending Michigan Liberal Arts Deans college and becoming an Artist/Musician. 
 
Although Aidan doesn’t have any upcoming DJ gigs, he plans on being a Disc Jockey on National Record Day next year.
