|Through the years, many people have asked me"what 's it like to be a disc-jockey.
I entered the business because I loved music. I also love being part of so many lives through the magic of radio.
Being a disc jockey, radio personality, air talent and so on is special to me because each day, across the country, thousands and thousands of listeners tune to radio to hear music, information and their favorite radio voice.
Listeners embrace radio as a dependable "friend" and turn to radio at happy times, sad times, lonely and vulnerable times.
Radio is also the popular first choice for weather, news, sports and traffic information.
So what's it's like to be a dj? Well, I enter the WJBR studios every Saturday for my 2-7pm airshift with an excitement deep in my heart. This is the same feeling I had when I did my first show on WDVL-FM in Vineland, New Jersey in April 1973, and WWBZ, WOND, WMGM, WSLT, WIBG, WPEN and now WJBR. It's similar to the feeling you get walking into a room with a bunch of your friends. You can't wait to talk to them, share stories, tell a few jokes and laugh a bit. It's just a good feeling of happiness.
That's what it's like to be a disc jockey.
