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 Matic.fm.

OB Van. This is Matic.fm official vehicle where the crew and news hunter will travel around with in order to bring to the sensational travel news and exciting stories from all over Malaysia.
Here’s a closer look at the OB van.
The van’s interior. Quite chic, don’t you think? I certainly wouldn’t mind traveling in this. I think it would be quite an adventure traveling to interesting places in Malaysia by using this van.
This is where news and interesting segments is made, the studio. Here’s Mr. Wan Salam, the producer for Matic.fm, conducting a test run before going on air.
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.
During the test run for ‘Bicara Semasa’. :p Pretty cool huh? It’s just like any ordinary TV talk show, except that it’s not on conventional TV and you will be able listen and watch these free of charge as long as you have Internet on your computers or mobile devices.
