How To Be A DJ - According to Jamster

When Jamster grows up he wants to be a DJ. Just the other day he announced that driving an ice cream van and helping himself to soft whip, flakes and sauce was his career choice but I guess kids change their minds quite frequently! 

He came to me with a sheet of paper which read "Skill: To set a long term goal for myself" and I was curious to discover what his goal was. I wondered what path he hoped his life was heading along and it was all written down in front of me, even providing a few tips on how others could get a dream job relating to music too...





1) You need to like music.
This one is a must apparently. Otherwise you might get a headache and be grumpy or not want to go to work at all. A grumpy DJ would not be good especially when playing at weddings and kids parties when there are balloons and face painters that can be irritating. Or in pubs when people have lots of alcohol and are silly.

2) You need to behave.
If you don't behave you will get kicked out of the job and then you will find it hard to get another one. You can't fight people that sing along badly and make your ears hurt and you definitely can't do ninja stunts on people that can't dance. You can however close your eyes or ignore them as long as you don't fall asleep.

3) You will need to learn loads about songs
You wouldn't want to mix up your Michael Jackson with your Jedward or your One Republic with your One Direction now would you? You need to know about every song sung, ever. It's a must.

4) You will need to know how old everyone is
Playing songs with rude words in to children will get you in trouble so you need to be able to guess how old everyone is or stand at the door and ask them when they come in to be sure. Sometimes you won't like the songs you have to play but as long as they pay you that's okay.

5) You need to look like a cool dude
Wearing a smart shirt and trousers is a necessity, you can't look scruffy if you want to be a DJ. You can put some of that VO5 wax in your hair and spike it up if you like, spray some Lynx on yourself and put on sunglasses. A loom band necklace is essential, the glow in the dark or glitter ones are best for this.


So, that's all the training and qualifications required for this job!
I have a feeling Jamster will be playing CD's a lot more from now on.



What has your child done to make you laugh this week?
