Life is good when you are a DJ like me. I have had a fun week talking to folks about entertaining at their various functions. I get to participate in the best times of people's lives. It's great when the people are having fun. I can almost feel the energy coming off of a crowd of happy people. In turn, I feed off of that energy. Without the crowd, I am less. I really appreciate the people letting me be a part of their special occassions. It's great to be an entertainer.
Call on me anytime. It's a great day for a party.

Saturday was a total blast! I got to play at the KeysGate School Harvest Fest 2006 from 9am until 5pm. Working 9 to 5 what a way to make a living! It was good to be outside for a change. There were many activities to be done: Bounce house, giant slide, dunking booth, food. By far the best activity was the paint ball tent. I was right next to it playing fast paced music to go with the "extreme" sport. I had so many kids and parents ask me if I would play at their parties. I was even asked to come back next year! Of course I would. I have a full week planned. Tello you more later.

Had my last regular show yesterday morning on 9412.com. It went very well. When i announced that I was leaving the AM shift on the rock station, I got a ton of emails and IMs wondering why I was leaving. I had to get back on the air and explain further that I had taken a position as the BIG CHEESE at a small FM station. As I explained before, I am now the General Sales Manager of WPIK Radio Ritmo 102.5 FM in the Florida Keys.
I am so stoked to start my new job. I will miss the rock n roll. The format at the new job is more of a bilingual easy listening station. I will be able to do on-air all English shows to balance out the spanish ones. It's going to be great. I look forward to creating a huge listener fan base, not just in the Florida Keys & South Florida, but also all over the planet listening live on www.myradioritmo.com.
as usual, call on me anytime,

In addition to being Sales Manager, I will be doing shows on-air, producing commercial spots, promoting, and webmaster. Its a lot of work, but I am ready, willing and able. I like the responsibility.

Had a heckuva show today on 9412 - The Rock Station. Did a whole 4 hour show on the ladies of rock n roll. I thought it went pretty well. had a lot of requests for lady songs.

Had a wonderful weekend. It was an honor and priveledge to be the DJ/MC at the Crissey wedding last Saturday at the Miami Beach Rod & Reel Club. It is a beautiful room. The ceremony was just outside on the dock. Alison Rene was the harpist. She was most excellent. Towards the end of the ceremony and cocktails, it started to rain. So the folks came in to the ballroom where I was already set up and waiting for the happy people to show. Chef Ray prepared a wonderful meal. After dinner and the formalities were over--cake cutting, boquet tossing, and garter belt tossing-the folks were ready to dance. After a few drinks the people were ready for a heaping helping of "jiggy." So, with the suggestion of latino music and hip hop, I gave the people what they wanted. The people danced and danced.
I called Cedrick the steel drumer who was running the Lenninger wedding for me to see how things went. He said that they would get off of the dance floor. I love it when a plan comes together.
Today's KeysDAN Radio Show on 9412 - The Rock Station went really well, I thought. I started out playing songs with girl's names in them. The response for requests for these types of songs was good. Then they veered off of that theme, which was ok by me. Good music is good music. I like to play for the people.
Until next time,

Friday is finally here. Friday the 13th no less. All is well by me and mine. I had a fantastic radio show today on 9412.com. Looking forward to tomorrow. I have two weddings and they are going to be a great time. One wedding in Key Largo and one in Miami Beach. I do like weddings. They are always full of hope and new beginnings. The people generally are in good spirits and I feed of off that energy. It's a beautiful thing indeed.
I have also been working on my MySpace pages. I have two right now: www.myspace.com/keysdan & www.myspace.com/keysdanliveentertainmentanddiscjockeys.

Had a terrific show today, Especially the last hour. I got into a featurette from the soundtrack for the movie "The Big Lebowski" (1998) starring Jeff Bridges and John Goodman. One of the listeners in the 9412.com chat room asked who did the song "What condition my condition was in" and I went ahead and played the Kenny Rogers & the First Edition Version from the soundtrack. I also played Bob Dylan's "The Man in Me," Santana's "Oye Como Va," and the Eagle's "Peacful Easy Feeling." After that I played Elvis' version of "Viva Las Vegas" because I think Shawn Colvin's version from the movie might have been too knew. Besides, I like Elvis Presley's music. I also played a couple of Elvis covers by Cheap Trick and ZZ Top. All of that was followed by Mojo Nixon's "Elvis is Everywhere."
It was a good time. Who Knows? I may pull out the Resevoir soundtrack tomorrow. Lot's of good tunes there.

Today is my daughter, Destyn's 14th birthday. She is a great kid. I am very proud of her. She lives very far away from me so I don't get to see her much. I am happy that we do get to communicate in numerous other ways.
It was another fun Radio Show today on 9412.com. Lots of great requests came in. The people really have diverse taste in their music likes. I do my best to accomodate them all. Good music is just good music. I am looking forward to a great weekend.
I do have a sad point to make: A friend and co-worker, Nicolas James (aka Tropical Freedom - Steel Drummer) has passed away this week. His viewing is tonight from 7pm - 10pm at Bernardo Funeral Home in Kendall, Miami, Florida. My prayers go out to his family, especially his sister, Shirley, whom he was living with at the time of his death. Nicolas "Tropical Freedom" James will be missed.
Call on me anytime...

Another fabulous day in paradise. With all of these good days, how can I have a base of comparison? No Complaints. My radio show was fun on 9412.com. I look forward to everyday. It's another chance to give the people a heaping helping of jiggy. I enjoy making people happy. After the show, I spent the day talking to people about planning the entertainment at their various events. I look forward to each and every event. They are all the same, and they are all unique as well. It's a chance to meet real nice people and have fun with them. (Making a paycheck is not a bad thing either.)
Ciao for now...

The Wednesday edition of the KeysDAN Radio Show on 9412 - The Rock Station is now"in the can." I had a blast as always giving the people what they want.
