Taking a Break

For the last 10 years or more I have held a part-time job that I refer to as my weekly diversion from the rest of life. I am a DJ a local roller rink for their weekly Wayback Wednesday. I usually post the playlist at the end of the night on another social media platform and used to get some comments, but that platform seems to have lost popularity of late so I am looking at another means to post the playlist where there are links to the songs. I used to do this through this blog and a perl Continue reading Taking a Break

Jellybeans Playlists for April 1 & 7

Okay, so I went in last night to DJ and someone had complained that the Wednesday night music is the same music all of the time.   I think, hmm, I wasn’t here last week; the week before I played like a full rock pop set for the first hour and the regulars have their favorites that they want (sometimes demand) to hear and I am not sure if they were talking about last week or all Wednesdays as a whole.  What to do?  Make it through the night and start using my Wednesday nights for better things in the future Continue reading Jellybeans Playlists for April 1 & 7

Jellybeans Playlist for 2/4/2009

This a little late, but I was trying to use an old laptop loaded with Ubuntu Linux to convert the raw xml into a list and as usual trying to get Linux to do anything other than server stuff or light PC duties was going to be a multi-hour challenge of package searches and learning the command line conversion program.  So via MS Excel, here is the list.  It looks a little short this week as the night started out with some old disco played from CD.  To see the play list….

JellyBeans Classic Wednesday Playlist

Pretty good crowd tonight. There were a couple of groups including a the Cary Girls Night Out meet-up.  A lot of what was played was from requests.  Weird how the regulars want to shoot the DJ for playing other skater’s requests, and really give you grief for a slow song one of them requested at the end.  CW4L.  I skipped the after party tonight as I have tinge of upper respiratory crud coming on and I really need the rest.  To see the playlist…
