Hi. I've been a DJ on various hobby stations, as well as on the management team of several, from 2003 to late 2008. I went on hiatus then but am interested in DJing again, on a fresh, new (to me) station rather than going back to playing for the same crowd of listeners that I've known for years. I want something new. I have always done live shows, interacting with my listeners via an IRC channel or chatroom during my shows.
I have over 80 gigabytes of properly-tagged and volume-normalized mp3s in a wide variety of genres. I play a lot of old-school rock from the '60s through '80s, a wide variety of world music from all over the place, lots of Celtic music, an occasional bit of jazz, and even some Country & Western and bluegrass upon occasion. You never know what you're going to hear on my shows. (Tuvan throat-singing, anyone?)
I have a stable ADSL connection that tests at around 600kb up and 2mb down, a UPS for the modem and wifi router in case of power outages (so I won't just drop the stream should that happen), a reliable laptop with a 750GB external drive, running PCLinuxOS and Internet DJ Console 0.8.4 (which I have tested on a Shoutcast stream and ensured that I can connect). I have a headset/mic combo. While I have DJed using both Winamp/Shoutcast DSP and SAM Broadcaster in the past, I am currently in a Microsoft-free environment using all (legal) free/open source applications.
I'm located in the Philippines but am an American national. I am interested in doing 1 or 2 shows per week in the afternoons between 3PM and 5PM local Philippines time, M-F only or perhaps later, say 8-10PM. I would prefer a licensed, legal station. It can be a start-up station but I would prefer one with an established listener base and one that's going to be around for awhile.
I can be reached via email at motterj at gmail dot com if you're interested. I'm not looking for a paid position nor a station management position (too much behind-the-scenes drama), I'd just like to DJ again for the fun of it.
