Big thanks to all BIRN DJs for a smashing summer season!
The official broadcast season runs through Friday night, August 16. If you have a show you’d like to do that weekend or later, email management about it ASAP.
Fall show proposals will be accepted starting September 2 – the week before classes. Submit your show proposal early that week to ensure the best chance of getting your favorite time slot. We will begin broadcasting shows in Week 1 (starting September 9).
Our first meeting of the fall will be Monday, September 9 in the usual place (22 The Fenway, room 112). Please note the time change:
6:30 pm for noobs
7:30 pm for peeps
Friendly reminder: Attending our weekly meetings is a requirement for all BIRN DJs.
We have new computers at the Edit desk! Be nice to them.
IMPORTANT: To help Traktor to run more efficiently, we have made an important change to our file management practice. Your DJ folders are now located on the new BIRN_Music volume (not BIRN_DRIVE). You will find BIRN_Music on the desktop of the Broadcast and Edit computers and you should use it in the same way as before.
NOOBS: As a reminder, these are the required steps to complete your DJ training and become a peep:
- Signed forms given to your trainer (or the station manager)
- DJ photo taken
- DJ profile description written
- Training shows 1-5 attended
- Observation done (see below)
- Proficiency passed
Speak with your trainer and/or Curtis if you have questions about any of these.
