Q: What do you mean: “Test show”?
A: We expect all NER DJ applicants to conduct a two hour long trial show, this is to show you understand how to work your Broadcast software, your microphone works, and your internet connection can handle doing a live broadcast for the required amount of time.
Q: What should I have ready for my test show?
A: You should have the following items:
- Broadcast software installed and ready to go
- A microphone that works
- A minimum of two hours of music ready, if your show is themed toward a specific genre, then you should have that type of genre ready to go, if your show is a live mix show, you should be prepared to conduct a two hour live mix.
- Talking points. We expect all our DJs to conduct regular “talky bits” on air, whether it is to advertise the station, talk about what songs you are playing, or mention what game you are currently immersed in. If you are unclear what you should talk about, please ask the recruitment staff who reaches out to you.
