    I'm saving them all for a book called 'Can You Play Something Good?'

    Chapter 1 - 'This hip-hop is wicked mate, but don't you ever feel like playing some really thumping techno?'

    Well, actually I had been ...

    'Actually I have been - just now - Derrick May yeah? I saw you dancing ... '

    The blank look he returned was all too familiar....

    ____

    read the rest when it's released in hardback in 2033.

    (that was the nearest I could find to a white haired old DJ icon - I suppose it does look a bit like Jimmy Saville if you squint)

              Stupid, moi? Well, I've had a few unguarded moments & been Mr Divine's James Brown fool once ot twice (as I'm sure we all have). Example? Well, I do remember a mate was playing the Beefheart/Zappa 'Bongo Fury' LP & I listened for a bit, then pronounced (with the authority than can only come of bluffing madly) "I prefer Beefheart, myself" - of course, during one of the Beefheart tracks... There are many more, but I'm not telling till the rest of you put up your own faux pas where we can see them... And grooving off to Bananarama remix on a very exposed dancefloor because I was under the impression it was Prince until halfway through? Nope, that never happened. Honest.

                  Hmm, as a callow youth I purchased a pair of black wrangler jeans as I thought Chuck D said in Rebel Without A Pause "we wear black wranglers" when of course it was "we WERE black wranglers"

                  ahem

Anyway, it was 80's nite not too long ago and he ended up dropping Paul Hardcastle's '19' in his set....I guess some chic was so excited about it that she actually tipped him. How's that for appreciation?

                    Sadly, I have yet to get myself a DJing gig anywhere. It seems that the ole addage, 'it's not what you know but who you know' holds true. Got any tips on how to land myself a regular DJing spot. Mixtapes? CD's?
                    Make lots of friends.

                    Eventually, one of them will buy a bar, or start managing a bar, or perhaps an enormous outdoor summer festival, and when they start thinking about the music their thoughts will wander naturally to yourself.

                    Also, one of your other "more useless" mates can probably print up your flyers on the cheap or something so don't abandon all your little pawns, uh friends as soon as you've got that big residency you were after.

                    (Okay, this post is stupid but it's pretty much how things have panned out for me.)
