Next Meeting

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.
