Episode 19 – Let's Do Something Great!
In this episode of the podcast, not only do I answer a handful of questions submitted by listeners and readers of the blog, but we dive into the topic of going from a good DJ to a GREAT DJ!
A little while back, I wrote a post (check the resource list below) titled “The 5 Traits Shared by Great DJs”. In this episode, I expand on this and explain how these traits can aid you on your path to becoming a great DJ.
