My Week As A Radio DJ on DAVE FM

alligator-suitIt has been a fun week here at DAVE FM. Started off pretty quiet on Monday with a tour of the studio, some introductions and an interview with local media. I am also working at the Holiday Inn Kitchener this week, working for my keep, and so have been spending a couple hours each day helping out around the hotel. I spent some time in the laundry room, folding towels, ironing linen, in the kitchen peeling some potatoes, serving drinks to priority club members, and helping set up a banquet last night. Over at Dave FM I was on site for their Tee it up Tuesdays golf event broadcasting live from the golf course. I was dressed up in an alligator costume, taking pictures with golfers, handing out some Dave FM stickers, and helping co-host the afternoon drive show. It was my first time on air this week and I got to do the weather and traffic, though the alligator outfit might have been the highlight of the day.

studioOf course you listen to Dave FM if you live in the Waterloo region, so stay tuned for an upcoming commercial over the next few weeks that I was able to do the voice over for. It was pretty cool to record the commercial in the studio and hear my voice transformed by the acoustics giving it a radio sounding effect.

Yesterday I co-hosted the morning show with Jeff Lumby and Gayle O'Brien. Great people and we had a lot of fun with it. Whenever I hear morning radio, it always seems like they are having such a good time in studio and really enjoy what they are doing. I got a first hand experience of it yesterday.

Today is my last day at Dave and then it's time to start a new job next Monday. I wasn't too sure where we were going up until Wednesday, and we were thinking of going anywhere from Stratford, to Montreal, to even Halifax.

I finish my last shift from 4pm - 5pm (EST) tonight and then we are heading to Toronto for the weekend. Although we have no idea where we will be staying or how we are getting there as of yet, should be good times. I think I will announce on air tonight if anyone can give us a ride East. If you want to tune in, you can listen live on the DAVE FM website.
