BRISTOL, UK -- Wearing large black sunglasses (a fashion statement, there is nothing wrong with her eyesight), flashy clothes, bling jewelry, fake diamond-incrusted DJ headphones on her white hair, DJ Ruth Flowers, a.k.a Mamy Rock, 70, is a real phenomenon and the latest sensation on the European nightclub scene - setting the new world record for the Oldest Female DJ.

The Oldest Female DJ in The World had started her career as a DJ at the age of 65 years, and still can bring the young atmosphere in the songs she played.
The World's Oldest Female DJ began her new career when, four years ago, she attended her grandson's birthday party. "Kids don't play games anymore. They have discos after they eat," she told ABC News. Photo: British DJ Ruth Flowers, 70 year-old, mixes music at a recording studio in Paris.

"I went to the party late. The doormen said 'Oh, I don't think you want to go in there, madam. And I said 'I rather think I do because it's my grandson's birthday'. So, I went in of course," she explained.
"It was noisy. The lights were flashing. But they were having such a wonderful time, the music, the enthusiasm, the energy, they were loving every minute of it. And I thought this is great. I could do this for the kids, I could run a disco," she said of her revelation. "But at that stage, I was thinking about something small. I was not thinking anything that is happening to me now," DJ Ruth admitted.
"She is totally respected in the DJ circle. She is no joke. She's got a real talent to make people dance," French producer Aurélien Simon.
"Some people probably think I'm a weirdo, a bit OTT (for Over The Top), a bit bling bling, but I enjoy what I do," the Oldest Female DJ In The World said. Family and fans are supportive of DJ Ruth's new life.
"My family loves what I do. My son says, 'Ma, go for it'. My son went to the University in Miami and all his American friends are now members of my fan club. That's great. My grandson thinks I'm the coolest nana that ever was. I sign pictures for his friends at school. He's got prestige now" she said.
