DJ or Presenter?

Hello world and welcome to week seven of my weekly blog. Can I start off this week by giving everyone reading and supporting my new blog a massive thank you, especially for some of the brilliant and positive comments that have been sent to me. Until you start doing an actual blog, I don't think you really realize how significant it is to be consistently engaging with each new post. My hat goes off to all of those people who constantly grow their following, for their blogs from week to week.

Equally it can also be tough to come up with entertaining words for a radio, or podcast show and of course each DJ, or show presenter have their own definitive style. Now why did I say show presenter? For good reason, I am not a professional DJ, in fact I'm very far from it. Many of the shows you hear out there on the internet, are often done by amazing professional DJ's, who have done many years of hard slog and I certainly envy and greatly respect those DJ's. While other shows like mine are put together by presenters, working with computer systems at home with software editing programs. Hoping that we always bring you something entertaining and reasonable standard each show. However we all collectively still all fall under the very generic term of DJ, simply because it's easier for everyone to know the purpose of our roles on our shows. Show presenter really doesn't sound so cool, right? Now as I said it can be a challenge to speak on your show and in turn be entertaining, in fact some DJ's let the music completely do the talking, while others have a lot of chatter and fun. I like to let the music do the talking as much as possible but I also like to give you details of each track, should you be keen to follow a track up. In fact I greatly believe that is one of the significant differences between modern and old school commercial radio shows, these days. How often do you listen to a track on commercial radio now, wondering what is the name of the song and who the band is? For this reason shows like mine need to know these details, so if your submitting tracks send through your bio, details of albums, singles or release dates and even possible upcoming gigs. All these details greatly help the DJ to tell the audience a bit more about you.

Okay as I said last week this blog is about what is happening with the show and things related to it. Therefore again with that in mind all the bands out there might like to send me news for any upcoming shows and/or music releases each week. Keep in mind the blog is posted every Saturday, so if you could send me the details by Wednesday each week that will be a great help. As with any music you send me, please use my email address of skerat@zoho.com to send me news. Also again to every bands and followers alike, please send me your sound files for the show, saying who you are and where you are from and that your listening to Skerat's Eclectic Podcasts.
