You're spot on, Harold. I wonder how hard it would be to offer a certification for DJs who do/have those things. It could be something they proudly display on their web site, and a positive peer pressure to DJs who don't yet have it. Perhaps a national web site with DJs all over the country. If I knew a couple DJs in Phoenix of whom I knew had this in place, I would refer to them exclusively.

Possibly local audiologist could offer a group package for DJ companies to have their hearing checked. Possibly Resorts would require it to be on their prefered vendor lists.

I'm going to add this to my list of things to do someday.

Hi Dana,

Excellent idea Dana. Actually easy to do technically, but getting folks to participate would be tough, I suspect.

Most DJ's I've come across, are in their late teens to early 30's, and they tend to think they "know everything" and are "invincible", inspite of their ingnorance. They simply don't know, what they don't know. Most started out just messing with the audio stuff, but then failed to do the research to really learn about the medium.

The usual stuff, as many of us were that way in our younger days. So, kind of tough to get them to listen.

I started working with the audio stuff back when the first transistor radios came out and in the "Heath Kit" days, when you could buy kits of parts to build your own tuners, preamps, amplifiers, turntables, and speakers. Those were the good old days.

Harold

Thanks Harold,

I was also thinking about how magazine articles often give a checklist for what to ask your videographer, DJ, etc. I'd like to add a few questions for the DJ part.
