Mobile DJ

I did time as a “mobile DJ” for a while. I hosted Karaoke Nights & did weddings and dances and parties, and dealt with drunken family members who couldn’t sing, and got pulled over for “drunk driving” when my little Dodge Aries K station wagon was overloaded with heavy equipment and swerved over a double yellow line. No, I wasn’t drinking. But we did get towed over 100 miles home and pretty much cost me money to do that gig.

This is the greatest termination letter EVER!

The guy tells me he doesn’t think I have what it takes to be a mobile DJ…which is AWESOME. And goes on to tell me how much he likes me.

I consider this to be one of the highlights of my professional career!

I took a few shots at this station. Years later, I would cause the piano bar at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Hollywood to be locked due to a night of drunken sing-along with the Program Director of this station. Good guy!
