I sometimes make small tracks in Fruity Loops, but that's more production than DJing. I'd love to try scratching, but I haven't got the equipment and don't know anyone who does.

DJing is great, hope you get good at it.

Does anybody know of a windows equivalent to Mac's Garage Band? I LOVE that program, but I dont have a Mac.

I've never tried DJing, sounds fun. My brother has a scratching thing where its a spinable CD. Its pretty sweet, but its sort of hard. Sometimes I can catch a word, but most of the time its hard.

I've messed around in Acid (Sony) a bit. Other than that I've only tried my friend's turntables a couple times.

I like listening to the trance/techno/house/vocal trance on di.fm or sky.fm sometimes.

Yeh, Sony Acid is a pretty cool program, but definatley lacks the ease-of-use in Apple's garage band. If only they made a Windows version.

ive done a little Djing but nothing all that serious. but i agree, it is great fun. I cannot afford the equiptment and also where i live there is no demand for a dj

I found using the Numark CD/scratch player combo things amounts to heaps more fun than turntables because then i could create my own beats using fruityloops(hehe) then mix them together with other songs and such as i go.

I had a morning drive time show on community radio for about 8 years, so I guess that's DJ-ing. Didn't do sock hops or raves or anything like that. Just played the killer tunes of my own choosing.

I was a DJ for the "Red Onion" from '84-91. I already had club dj experience for about three years prior, and the Red Onion was considered a very sweet gig because it paid very well, and all 21 of their clubs were really popular and so all the local DJ's and wannabees were lucky just to get auditions!

In the mid 70's to the early 80's I was a radio DJ and news reporter, and that was fun too! From '92 'till about '97 I had various other DJ gigs, the last of which I was an announcer for "Sunny" 106.7 in Vegas.

That was/is the number 1 station in Las Vegas and I really enjoyed that gig, but full-time was not going to happen unless one of the regular personalities quit, got fired or moved to another station; They're all still there today!

So I started my own business in 2000 and haven't looked back!

We've had radio DJs, but how about a mobile DJ? That is, playing Top 40 hits from CDs.

I was a mobile DJ from about 1998 to about 2003. Starting out helping a friend on his gigs, and eventually I got my own stuff and we shared bookings. Still got all the equipment actually.

18th and 21st birthdays were the most fun, since after an hour the alcohol kicks in and then they'll dance to anything. The kids gigs could get rather annoying sometimes (especially since I had to buy Steps and Britney Spears CDs), but even today's kids know the moves to YMCA.

It was the perfect way to use my then 700 CD collection. My mother used to have Radio 1 on all the time when I was a toddler and then a child, hence I have a rather vast and scary knowledge of chart music from the 80s and beyond.

My most memorable gig was in late 1999 when I replicated the Ministry Of Sound in an army hall for late-teens and early-twenties attendees... without using vinyl. Using a Denon twin CD player I could mix with full-length dance CDs, and I often mixed non-stop between chart hits on regular gigs as well.

It was good money, but rather exhausting after I got home late and had to cart the speakers inside.
