Disk jockeys work in radio stations, dance clubs, special events organizers, recording stations, or may also be self-employed. They must possess a love for music, have a good ear for music aesthetics, and know how to gauge their audience. Disk jockeys are responsible for playing music that can be aired over the radio or to a live audience. They may also have to ensure playlist selection depending on the type of work or project. Disk jockeys with their own profession usually bring and use their own equipment when working in other locations or events.
