DJ And Radio Show Host At 16 You Say!?
Highland Spin is a DJ trio, I am one of the trio. The group was set up in October 2011 originally with just two members, me being one of them. Over the year and a half we have been running we have played at birthday parties, local youth groups, Halloween parties, Christmas parties, school nursery fundraisers and alcohol-free teen nightclubs. Although the group has been running for about a year and a half I have known how to DJ for two years!
I have been hosting a regular two hour dance show on Heartland FM since the 24th of June 2011. Working at Heartland FM has been amazing! I have met so many great people and learnt to so much and there is still so much more to learn from the station manager, sales department and other presenters. I got into the radio work via a work experience week through my school which I really enjoyed. Three months before coming to Heartland I finished learning how to DJ and was loving it and thought going to Heartland would be a step in the right direction for me to progress with my skills. So I went along to the week, 5 days, of work experience and thoroughly enjoyed it. Bruce, the station manager, sat down with me and sort of interviewed me for about ten minutes about what type of music I was into and then said that he would be happy to give me my own show! To this day I am still hosting Alex’s Dance Hours which for the first three weeks was one hour long and then was extended to two after that!
Geek? What sort of things make you a geek?
Well I am a geek because of my personal life. I enjoy programming and at the moment I am developing a simple Android game using Java which I am enjoying doing, I hope to continue programming and expanding my languages. Exams are another point which make me a geek. I got an A in my Higher Computing exam. But that’s not the only things, coding in free time and getting an A in the Higher Computing exam. I follow technology strongly and really enjoy trying out new OS’s and trying to enhance them by developing my own apps to increase my productivity. I sat and watched a live commentary of the last two Apple Keynotes and downloaded iTunes 11 as soon as it became available.
