    Van Wrap? Magnets? Decals? Anyone?

    THIS. A friend of mine wrapped his Nissan NV200 van awesomely. It's only packed with gear when he has events. On his off days, he drives it to the busiest shopping center in town, parks it near the entrance where it's visible to everyone who drives by, and takes an Uber home. Then he Ubers...

    New Sennheiser Wireless Audio

    If you don't own it, how do you know it works?

    xover or HP filter question

    You're better off finding a pair of used passive speakers on Craigslist or Facebook marketplace. Those Anchor systems sound terrible and are way overpriced for what they are.

    Do you like the mobile part of this job?

    I wish you well with this venture, but whatever beauty you're seeing in this place is completely lost on me.

    Do you like the mobile part of this job?

    So what does this place actually look like? I tried finding it using the map that's on your website but it's set for a general area, not the exact location. I doubt you're on the same main road as the Taco Bell and Walmart.

    Do you like the mobile part of this job?

    This is a ridiculous red flag, Rick, not a win-win. Yes, you're getting cheap rent, and you've called this building "less than stellar". Yet at the same time you somehow see it as a place where people will want to host a wedding reception? I think you're going to see one of two things happen...

    Do you like the mobile part of this job?

    Mistake #1. If this thing pops, open a second space. You do know that any other venue would charge more for BYO vendors, right? Outside vendors don't care about your place. Outside DJs will need more time to set up and break down. Outside caterers will clog up your sinks, leave all of...

    Do you like the mobile part of this job?

    It's a smart move if you can juggle all of the other aspects of running an event venue and still enjoy your job. I predict that you'll have too much on your plate and will need to hire someone else to do the DJ work in short time. Alternately, you'll have too many open dates and not enough...

    He's Krafty...

    He's got a 39-year-old sugar baby though. And it involves human trafficking, which is far worse than a simple business transaction or prostitution. He's a smart guy (or just incredibly dumb with smart people around him), but there's no way he didn't know that the girls he was paying there...

    Just found out about a wedding on Thursday June 25th, 2020.

    The bride's mom starts talkin' 'bout the wedding, and there's one more gig Mix won't be getting! (Apologies to Young MC).

    Cold Spark machine

    Not that I'm aware of, but Rhode Island is such a small state and everybody knows somebody who was involved in that fire... we can all live without sparks in small spaces.

    Cold Spark machine

    They're pretty much prohibited here in Rhode Island. The Station nightclub fire is still too fresh in peoples' minds and these units, while not exactly pyro, are much too reminiscent of actual pyrotechnics. We can use them outdoors (I don't), but not indoors.

    This might be the column array we have been waiting for

    I agree with you on the aesthetics, but I've been so pleased with my Evox 8 system that I just ordered one JMIX8 and one J8 and will be selling off my old Bose L1's and an EV Live-X system. The need for big speakers just doesn't exist anymore - if I can't cover the room with 4 Evox modules...

    Indeed. I spoke with Jim this morning and he and PO are both working diligently to make things happen quickly and smoothly for PrimeCuts subscribers who'd like to switch. Although he's pushing their Audio Silver package as the most similar to what we got with PrimeCuts, I signed on for the...

    They ran into some issues with licensing and weren't going to be able to resolve them quickly. From what I'm told, the offer from Promo Only came quickly, and let's be honest... you can't blame Jim for not entertaining it.

    Anybody wanna be a radio jock?

    That's certainly true for calls made TO the station for a contest or request, which is why they run that disclaimer from time to time. For "The War Of The Roses", the skit requires an outbound call made by the morning show hosts to a supposedly unsuspecting person who may not even be a listener...

    Anybody wanna be a radio jock?

    Having worked in radio for a number of years, I can assure you that every version of this that you're hearing today is scripted. For one thing, you never hear them solicit people to set up others for this. For another, EVERYONE knows about it, because morning radio shows have been doing this bit...

    This should be the last event I do before I have the surgery.

    The customer is always right, even when you think they're wrong. Either way, you're still getting paid. Keep your eyes on the prize. Where are these potential clients finding you? I've seen the pictures you've posted here and they're usually of people just sitting around, so I can't imagine...

    Your thoughts on the new Pitbull?

    He hasn't had a Top 10 hit in the USA in five years... "Time Of Our Lives" was the last one and it hit #9. "Fun" featuring Chris Brown got to #40 in 2015. "Ocean To Ocean" is his 15th single release since "Fun"... the only slightly memorable track of the 14 singles released in between was...

    Anybody wanna be a radio jock?

    Totally scripted... each and every one of them. You can't legally air a phone call without first letting the person on the other end know that the call is being broadcast and/or recorded, which would give away the whole point of the prank if it was real.

    Anybody wanna be a radio jock?

    I was a radio jock from 1993 to 2000... loved the profession, hated the hours and pay. I still keep in touch with all of my co-workers from those days, and was just asked to do some fill-in work at a local station that one of those co-workers is now programming. January, February and March...

    The reason is that they're owned by Cumulus Media, an owner of radio stations. That wasn't always the case... TM Century used to be THE source that radio stations relied on to build their music libraries, along with providing jingles and production music. About 12 years ago, they got bought...
