    I currently have my music collection (the entire Collection has now been digitised) on random play, which is nice because every now and then it throws up a stonking track that I'd forgotten.

    Like this for example:

    Nice Fred
    I simply fucked up when I tried to correct a typo.

    More seriously, I spent a lot of years behind decks, starting with cases and cases of vinyl, finishing with a laptop and MP3s, so you can imagine I got a bit fed up with most music.
    Not really, I DJ'd for over 20 years, starting out in clubs and ending uo doing clubs, pubs and private parties. I didn;t get fed uo with most music. I suppose it depends on your reasons for doing it. I DJ'd because I love music. I also didn't just do weddings/birthdays etc, I did a wide range of club and speciality nights which kept me on my toes.

    I've done punk, rock, heavy metal, ska, reggae, hip-hop and dance clubs. I've done 5 hours of 50s rock 'n' roil straight. I;ve done specialist Irish nights. Carribean nights, soul nights, 70s glam and disco nights. My collections is nothing if not varied. But, no, I never got bored of the music.

    Mine was all party shit - Wedding and so on so I ended up playing cheese all ruddy night. I got them up dancing and all the stuff a party DJ is supposed to do, but it wears you out as far as music goes so I simple stopped bothering when I moved here. I still have a very nice collection of stuff from 1939 to 2007, but I stopped updating it and hardly ever open the folder these days.
    When I do open it or play from Youtube, I listen to classical, opera, or heavy metal.

    This sort of shit

    I'm a low educated, total guttersnipe, dim witted moron.

    Nice Fred

    So you were a mobile party DJ, not a real DJ.

    That'll be the difference.

    To be fair, I was ususual for a DJ, I've honestly never met another DJ who could do as many different scenes as I could.

    At one point in the 90s, I was DJing a rap club on Mondays, a student party night (so up to date, but all genres) on Tuesdays, a 70s/80s cheese night on Thursdays, a punk/indie/rock club on Fridays and a big happy house club on Saturdays. All my nights were packed. I've also DJ's 70s glam and sico nights in clubs, ska nights and pshychabilly/rockabilly nights. I've DJ's between bands and some larger gigs around town as well. I also used to promote my own gigs (organise the whole thing, book the bands, venue, security and PA, pay everyone and keep whatever's left) as well as running gigs on the day for some of the larger promoters in Brighton when they had more than one on the same day. For a while I was also hiring out security to other promoters and running a flyposteriing business to get a bit of extra cash on the side. (That started because I had two girls working for me doung all my flyering, and one of the bigger promoters asked me how I managed to get the town covered so effectively as his guys were next to useless, he sacked his guys and paid me to get his done, then I advertised it more widely. The girls working for me were delighted because I paid them per poster, so the more I gave them, the more money they got, I charged other slightly more than I was paying them. At one point they were earning over 100 quid each just on a Saturday, as well as getting free entry to many clubs and gigs - very good money for students in the 90s).

    Later I diversified even more, I did a few reggae and Carribean nights in London. St Patricks Night I was always booked into a bif Irish Bar (sometimes The Globe in Holoway, sometimes The Father Ted in Kilburn, proper Irish pubs, not theme pubs. On St Georges night I did an English night at a pub in Sheperd's Bush. For one season I DJ'd a Fulham supporters pub on Fulham High Street after every home game (I was the onlyh DJ they ever found who managed a whole season...). The biggest gig I did was at Portsmouth Guildhall for over 2000 kids.

    I has an agent who called me for every odd gig he got because he knew I could handle it, 5 hours of 50s rock 'n' roll? No problem. 5 hours of 60s soul? No problem. Biker bar? No problem, I even did one Hells Angels event.

    Party and pub work more than paid the bills, then I expanded to installation and stage management. I had a portable stage (back of an articulated lorry) and all the shit to run a good size show.
    That was a lot of fun and more than paid the bills.

    I wasn't doing it to pay the bills, I already had a perfectly good day job that did that. I did it because I enjoyed it, the fact that it gave me even more money was a bonus. It more than funded my record buying addiction. I didn't really see it as a job, it was a hobby that happened to make me a lot of money at the same time.

    Through the promoting I was putting on bands that I wanted to see that no-one else was putting on in the town. So I got to see the band, and made a profit. I put on a few punk and psychobilly bands that other promoters wouldn't touch because of the risk of trouble, I put them on and just hired the right security staff. No trouble at any of my gigs. Part of that was hiring security that knew the difference between a mosh pit and a fight, and that were also personally known to all the local punks and greasers that may have otherwise been the troublemakers. Sometimes local knowledge goes a long way.

    I was doing real work but an alcoholic mate kept messing up his jobs and I ended up taking the game over. It wasn't long before I realised I could make more on a Friday and Saturday night than I could manage in a full week doing real work.

    I'd never heard that before (or don't remember it anyway), I quite like it though.

    LOL!! I can't believe I have found something you haven't heard of, Forkers! Might have to have another cup of tea to recover
