Notorious Ang: Model. DJ. Badass.
When I was younger I got a job working nights, it was in a freezing warehouse carrying boxes from one end to the other. It kept me fit, but I think I would have much preferred Notorious Ang’s night time job.
We found the DJ, Model and photographer on a break in between nightshifts and got ‘jiggy with it’.
Your show is 6am to 10am is that an early morning or late night show for you?
I lovingly refer to it as the “Walk of Shame Shift”. If you are hearing my voice odds are you are getting ready to got to church, or coming home from last nights booty call. Either way, “confession” is probably on the agenda.
How did you get into DJ’ing?
My career in radio started in 2009, when I won the title of “Bone Rock Girl”, spokes model for 107.7 The Bone in San Francisco. It was “52 girls will enter, but only one will leave” style contest. Somehow, I’ve manage to hang around even after my reign ended. I am currently the Sunday Morning Mistress of Mayhem.
Do you have all time favourite band?
Favourite anything is always a hard question for me to answer. I have my favourites of the moment, but I’m a classic rock girl at heart.
Who might people be surprised you are secretly a fan of musically?
My musical tastes span all across the board. I think the most surprising to would probably be the vast selection “Gangsta Rap” on my iPod. Sometimes you just gotta drink a 40 and bust a cap in a mofo. Ya heard?
Do you design your own clothes?
I wish!! I have been lucky enough work with amazing companies like Steady Clothing and Dollhouse Bettie. Any time you see me dressed to the nines you can blame it on Steady. Dollhouse Bettie keeps me in snazzy undies.
You seem to be a fan of 50′s style and fashion (like me), what is it that you like about that era?
I think that 50′s fashion is flattering on everyone. Women dressed like women, and men dressed like men. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes wearing a full skirt or a girdle can be a pain in the butt.
I love the retro style when I get all dolled up. You can be sexy without showing too much. When I’m running around town you will usually catch me in a motorcycle jacket and skinny jeans.
Is it easier in front of, or behind the lens? Which do you prefer?
Being in front of the lens is almost second nature to me now. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some of the best photographers in the business (Shannon Brooke, Holly West, Robert Alvarado to name a few), and without them I would not be where I am today.
I dabble in photography and have been threatening to get back into it. I’d love to be able to give pointers and great picture to girls just starting out. I can’t be in front of the lens forever, getting behind it seems only natural.
What does it say on your passport under profession?
I am pretty sure it says “Administrative Assistant”. “Bad Ass” was deemed inappropriate. I tried ;)

I like Burt Reynolds as much as the next man. He has set a standard for leading men (and moustaches) that have lasted nearly 40 years, Scott Chasse on the other hand....
