I don't get them all the time, but enough to know and remember them. Different versions, situations & events but all basically the same.... at an event, the song is coming to an end and you can't figure out what to play next, or you can't get the song to load, or your search feature is not working. The clock is ticking and then, BAM, dead air and people staring at you, you get a song on somehow, only to have it happen again,,,,, I hate that dream,.

Yep I have them and hate them, usually its I can't find the first dance or I'm running late or can't find the location. Of course this helps drive me to rehearsals for a site visit as well. I did have my worst dream come true about a month ago. We went out to leave for an event and I had already gassed and washed the van.

When I tried starting, I hear (gggggggggg) nothing and it would not start. Luckily we had someone helping us that day who had a truck so we loaded his truck up, our was already filled with the photobooth. All went great but there was that 20 minutes of trying everything in a calm oh shit moment and then moving on to a super fast made up plan B.

Those dreams have dogged me for several decades. Sometimes, it would be magnified thousands of times by being at a radio station! Lol
