DJ2CombatStress Blog #20 – Radio DJ

Welcome to this week’s DJ2CombatStress Blog, where I will be reflecting on my first flurry into being a radio DJ and have some more great news to announce.

Radio DJ

The last 2 weeks has seen me take on my first experience being a radio DJ! Having added to my technical collection of gadgets, it is actually quite easy to be able to broadcast from your home as long as you have power and a solid internet connection.

And oh boy did I panic! I was so focussed on getting the technical side of things working, that I completely forgot how to mix, never mind engaging people listening in an an emotionally responsive way. It’s a lot harder than you think especially as you then have a text line and WhatsApp going in the background too.

So after I beat myself up about not being very good, I realised I needed to break things down. Technical – Mixing – Speaking. Got the technical side sorted now, the mixing is continuing to improve and starting work with a voice coach in the next few weeks to sort that problem out.

Hopefully you will enjoy my latest two mixes above, which are vast improvements. Top tips for myself – prepare well, practise lots and grow in confidence!

Join me every Wednesday from 5pm for my Drum & Bass show –
