So You Want to Be a College Radio DJ...
Well, then, you should probably attend KUCI's DJ Training Class, which begins July 8 at 7 p.m. in HICF 100-P on the University of California Irvine campus (map here). You don't have to be a student at the school to participate; you just need a powerful urge to become a component of what the Weekly has judged to be the best radio station in Orange County. Here's your big chance to potentially foist your musical taste on the world.
From the press release:
"The 8-week class will provide the participants with a instruction on FCC rules and regulations, KUCI policies, KUCI history, as well as, training in basic radio engineering, podcasting and audio editing software.
"KUCI, broadcasting from the University of California at Irvine, offers the most extraordinary lineup of talent on the air and online. As one of the very first radio stations to broadcast via the internet and one of the first iTune podcast stations, KUCI provides the widest array of voices and music imaginable.
"Since its beginning in 1969, KUCI has produced non-commercial talk and music programs that expand the universe of its listeners, introducing artists and thinkers before their work hits the national and international spotlight. Today, every sound organized in time — political right, middle and left, classical music, punk, reggae, world, experimental, indie, goth, jazz, rock, and folk — is heard regularly on KUCI programs.
"For further information please contact KUCI Training Director, Brian Quon at firstname.lastname@example.org or General Manager, Mike Kaspar at email@example.com or 949.338.0646."
And now, with staggering obviousness, I present to you David Bowie's “DJ.”
