    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.)

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

    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)

    Forgot to mention that Big Dave now no longer works at the afore mentioned establishment, due to the fact that he left to persue a 'career' in fookin' showbiz, the daft big fooker only tried to audition for the new film but unfortunately on application he was informed that in fact the would be "a computer generated model" he, understandably was slightly peeved 'an the big fooker's pea sized brain worked itself into a fookin' frenzy 'an 'ee proceeded to rip into 'an i quote, "fookin' girly fookin' compooter fookin' slag bastaaaad fookin' bollocky foookin' wank bastaads don't know what the fookin' ell there a bunch 'o' fookin' faggotty squaddy faggots" during all this tho' i stayed fookin' shtum' as a few 'o' me mates wi me (who know full well that i dabble with computers and other fookin' girly persuit's) were ictchin' to say summat to Big Dave about me, luckily my terrified look's towards them seemed to have the desired effect 'an another fookin' embarrasin' night in casualty was swiftly averted!. after that little outburst, Big Dave left 'an we never saw 'im again we bid 'im fond farewell wi' fookin' tears in 'us eye's,'an truth be told we kinda missed the daft big fooker!. month;'s later one 'o' the lad's came back from a drink 'n' bonk holiday in fookin' Ibiza 'an tell's us he'd been lordin' it oop in fookin' Manumission,
    now i know they let any old fookin' knobcheese and riff raff in there of a night, but the fookin' scary bit was "aye 'an fookin guess who's on 't' fookin' door?-PAUSE- Big fookin' Dave ". Apparently with a fookin' tan like he'd bin' dipped in fookin' creosote an drippin' in the most fookin horrendous gold jewlery!!!, foookin' elll proper fookin' bo i reckon. Big Dave this shout go's 'oot to you mate Viva e fookin' spania, heh heh
    look 'oot if you go to Manu fookin' mission the big fooker on the door could be my mate 'Big Dave'.

    TSK! tips!, from birds too! eh? what the fook's that all about then?, the only tip's i got when playin' rekkids were "clear yer fookin' mess oop after" and "nay fookin' drinks near 't' lectric"
    never worked that one out and the best one "when big fookin' Dave starts chookin' oot those fookin' squaddies, dive straight for 't' fookin' exit lad!" beleive me these are true.
    Big Dave was a right big 'fooker tho' 'an no mistake, the bugger looked like a cross 'tween George fookin' Hamilton the third an fookin' Frankenstein.

Loads of Sly Stone, James Brown etc. got covered, but Blooblo is the only "heavy" version I've heard. Hmmm, separate thread perhaps.
    Agree on the superstition, also would like to add (for the type of places we are talking about here) -

    Chic - Good times
    Sister sledge - Thinking of you

    God bless ya Bernard !

    Lyn collins - Think

    If they don't make anyone dance or at least put a smile on folks faces ........................show me the door

    Having held down a 13 year weekly residence (something I'm still not sure whether to be immensely proud or ashamed of...), I feel like I've experienced every stupid question going. I thought the "Can you play some funk?" while playing James Brown "Get On The Good Foot" was bad. Until another week someone asked "Can you play some James Brown?" while I was PLAYING James Brown!
