I’ve made my mind up that my days as a DJ are coming to an end. This hasn’t been an easy decision but alas…
The pain from the Carpal tunnel syndrome in my wrists mixed with the pain from Osteoarthritis/Spondylitis makes it difficult to concentrate some days.
I have days where I just cannot do things because either my hands. back or hips are causing me immense pain.
I was sort of semi-retired anyway as I gave up DJ work in pubs and clubs a while ago.
No more having to please people, I’ve worn enough fake smiles in my time.
No more having to pack up equipment because there was fighting/trouble in the venue.
We’ve all had those “Nightmare” gigs as DJs.
A: As things stand right now I have no love left for the world of Internet radio or DJ work in general.
Too many Chiefs not enough Indians. (Too many people on forums/social media waiting to stab you in the back)
I guess I will always love Internet radio as a hobby just I won’t be doing any mixes or live radio shows again.
I will still promote RadioDJ via this website that’s a given.
It’s been a pleasure using RadioDJ over these past 6 years as the program is just so goddamn reliable & stable.
Shame I couldn’t say that for other software I’ve used along the way.
When I feel something within the world of radio needs blogging about I will write a post.
One thing I will never loose though. My love for music….
Being able to play music for a crowd is what I loved best about being a DJ! It helped me come out of my shell over 30 years ago at the Youth Club I joined.
Music has helped me through some of the darkest times of my life & it’s also been there on the days when I needed a laugh.
Thanks for all the fish and that… But now its time for me to concentrate on other stuff.
