The Life Of A DJ




Hope you are well!

What night it was ūüôā

As I finished recording and was about to save the file…..Bam…my laptop turned off!!! I kept my cool and went into the program folder for CastBlaster, and to my relief CB had recorded a temp file…Thanks CB Mike for writing that code!

Finished @ 01h00 was up at 05h00 to get to the studio to upload the file, it took one hour and 10 minutes…it’s a big show once again!!!

I’m very impressed I made the changes to my XML file myself! Not bad for a DJ, but I have had help from Craig Johnston ex SA now in NY, thanks Dude!

  1. Hello Derek,

    Thank you for the beautiful music on Saturday evening 25 Feb. That was an excellent trip through memory lane.

    We enjoyed it so much.

  2. Hey Derek! Your January podcast was slammin’, made me think back to the good old days when you ruled the airwaves on a Saturday night! I’m downloading podcast 003 as we speak! Bet it’s just as banging! Just one question though, on podcast 001 you played a tune from Colin in KZN (and it was a thumper). How can I get you some of my tracks so you could possibly give them a listen, coz I do some productions that I’m quite proud of! Anyway, have it large man! Thanx for these podcasts, they are making my days! Nice on brother, I said, nice one brother!!!

  4. Hi,

    Podcast 003 download is really slow. I have a 2 MB broadband line, but the download speed is averaging 5 KB/sec. 3 hours 28 min to go…

    But I’m sure that it will be worth the wait!
