I DJ for my clan's (Daddys Monsters) radio, Monster Radio. In all truth, it's really easy. Get the servers from shoutcast, get songs, bam, you're done. there are other things you have to learn, but those are the basics.

Well, to start you need a large record collection.

And a taste for cheesy, usually crappy, music

You also have to be able to mumble through a cheap microphone between songs, so that noone can understand a word you're saying.


(In all seriousness though, sorry I can't help you...other than the record collection point)

and to be sucessful, yell before a song "DIS ONE IZ FOR DA LAYDEEEEZ!"
When all else fails, ask the pit.

you need two turntables, a mixer, maybe an mp3 setup, and large record collection, maybe a midi keyboard or a sampler, a talkbox if you wanna be really cool, and some imagination.

i'd say do what my local d.j. does, use itunes/another form of "getting" the songs. If someone wants a song you dont have, get it quickly. But he uses his laptop hooked up through some speakers.
