  1. Hello oggi. I don't DJ any more and just visited the forum today out of curiosity. However, the KJs I see nowadays all seem to use a laptop connected to the Internet and just download tracks as they need them. If you ask around next time you're at a Karoake night someone will probably tell you the best sites. Good luck.
  2. My first log in for over a decade. Quite surprised I'm still registered. I stopped DJ-ing through health problems, mine and my wife's. After that I decided that as a musician of many years I preferred making my own music live rather than playing someone else's off disc / other media. I enjoyed my spell as a mobile DJ (apart from the back-ache) and came to respect the skills required of a good DJ, which was a change of heart for me as I used to say that "anyone can put a record on". Haha - lessons were learned very quickly. I am now enjoying a new lease of life as a singer/
  3. Ah, so you weren`t invited to Charlie & Cam`s wedding then? Shame http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/sad.gif
  4. I still have my Spectrum 48K, and it still works. I loaded Manic Miner a few weeks ago. http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/biggrin.gif I also still have the modem but sadly I don`t know how to get it to access modern ISPs. http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/014.gif But it was a lot of fun "back then" http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/smile.gif
  5. Been using some leads I made up ages ago. Recently got these.. http://cpc.farnell.com/jsp/endecaSearch/pa...U=AV02621&N=401 Boy, what a difference in clarity and power!!
  6. I used to feel a bit jealous of some guys who had a better power amp than me - I was only running a McGreggor 200 x 200. But I just got a Nexus 1.5k so I`m happy Now I just need some speakers to do it justice GARY. DON`T EDIT MY POSTS. I AM OLD ENOUGH TO DECIDE WHAT IS FORUM ETTIQUETTE. THERE IS MUCH MORE JUNK GOES ON HERE THAN I POSTED. DO N-O-T DO IT AGAIN!!!!
  7. As you`re probably aware by now I`m cutting down (or out) disco / karaoke work in favour of singing and playing like I used to in the last Century http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/biggrin.gif I`ve DJ`d for 6 years and never used an agent - and wouldn`t. But I`ve used agents extensively in my band and solo singing career for 40+ years. Not through choice but because clubs prefer to work via agents most of the time, and then try it on with; "Can we book you for next Octember the 32nd... we`ll book you direct so you don`t have to pay the agent`s fee . . .err, of course we`ll pay you
  8. I had a Montego Countryman for three years, then my (present) Volvo 240 Estate for four years. This is now ready for the knackers yard and I have lined up a nice VW Golf CL Estate as my next vehicle. This isn`t quite as big as the Volvo but as I`m about to jack in DJ/Karaoke this won`t really matter. For my future gigs I`ll still be carrying a PA, but no lights, and no cases of CDs, so the reduced space won`t really matter.
  9. Almost every addict will self-excuse his/her addiction usually along the lines of "Freedom of Choice", "it`s my right", "it`s the only pleasure I get" etc... but what they really mean is; "I can`t get along without it/them and if it means you gotta suffer, then so beit". When I smoked (40 to 60 a day) I NEVER smoked in cafes or restuarants where people were eating. And I wouldn`t tolerate someone smoking next to me when I was eating - to the extent that on a couple of occasions I stubbed out the person`s cigarette in their tea / coffee. I smoked for 44 years and have to say that I spent mo
  10. What about (us non-smokers) offering a discount to non-smoking venues??
  11. <edit> lol. I just had a go at you for competing with Chris, but have now found out that Chris has retired and changed the forum rules so.... Welcome. http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html//emoticons/smile.gif
  12. How do you puff a magic dragon? http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif
  13. Hey Chris - let us know when you get some in http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html/emoticons/smile.gif
  14. I think you were right to do what you did. As the author of the letter made it clear to you that he was a DJ I got the impression that his inital "percentage" suggestion was the thin end of the wedge. This is upheld by his saying that he would get back to you with "specific band names". I can`t help feeling that you would have been plagued by this person for the whole gig continually telling you; "well, I would have played this now" and ;"I don`t think that`s a good choice of music at the moment - didn`t you read my list?" I had a gig the other week that was Hell. A 30th birthday - that
