Behind the Scene at Matic FM, Travel with Style

Have you ever wondered how it is like to be a radio deejay? I used to wonder how it’s done when I was a child, after all, at some point of my childhood, I thought of becoming a deejay when I’m all grown up. Unlike TV hosts or news presenters, deejays are pretty much mysterious. You don’t ever get to see them, period. Most of them keep you cheerful in the morning, while the rest accompanied you throughout those long lonely nights with soothing sentimental songs in between.

As time goes by, radio stations has evolved into something that’s much more interactive. Instead of just hearing deejay voices, you can now ‘watch’ them on air too as some radios functioned as online TV.

Now, as I understand, while deejays are no longer dubbed as mysterious creature or imaginary superheroes, things that’s done behind the scene is still pretty much vague to most, so here’s sharing some bits and pieces on how things works behind the scene at the newly launched is one of the strategic initiatives by Tourism Malaysia and Ministry of Tourism & Culture under the Blue Ocean Strategy (BOS) to enliven the tourism and culture in Malaysia.

Control panel and sound system. Being a deejay is not just talks. It takes more than that to be one as you would need to handle not only the talking and the listeners, but ensure that everything is in sync while your show is being aired live.
