Hi! This is DJ Storm Shadow, I'm the host of the Mystical Monday Show, and its very new segment called "Team Interviews". This is where we take a closer look at one of our team members every week. The interview itself is divided into two separate parts: on air, and on the website. Due to time limitations, only 5 questions are answered on the show itself, but there are 20 other questions in the interview itself, which are always posted on our website.
Team Interviews are a fun way of getting to know all the people behind Simulator Radio, the people that help run this radio station day by day and that dedicate their time and effort into hosting shows or making sure everything stays how it's supposed to be. I hope that with this new feature, we will all have a bit of fun, but ultimately get to know each other better as a team as well.
THIS WEEK ON THE INTERVIEW
What artist would we be surprised to find on your personal playlist?
Yung Gravy - Many people call me a “rock boy”, I love rock, so many would be surprised I like rap as well. At first I hated rap, people at school even knew me as the guy who hates rap and just listens to rock, but then I acquired a taste for it, and indeed some rap tracks are quite good, the rest is still garbage.
What’s your guilty pleasure song?
Rotisserie by Yung Gravy (it’s just so smooth lol)
What made you want to become a DJ?
Well, I was a listener for a very long time, since about late 2014, or early 2015, I believe, and I
remember finding the station, and sending in requests while playing ETS, I was always so happy if somebody played
my request, it was awesome, one day I was bored, I went to the website to send in a request after not playing ETS
after maybe a year, and see that SR has a discord, I join it, talk to a DJ (JimmyBlues) and he helps me learn how
to DJ, once I felt I was ready I sent in an application, and I got accepted. I strive to play as many requests as
possible based on experience of being a listener, I want to play what people want on the radio. I also try to help
out as many people as possible trying to learn how to DJ from our community, once again based on experience,
without jimmy, unless somebody else had helped me I don’t think I would have been able to become a DJ here.
If you ever found yourself auditioning for a music reality TV show, what song would you sing and why?
Probably uptown funk because for no reason whatsoever I memorized the entire song word by word without
trying. I don’t even like the song…
What is your DJ setup?
snowball (with mic boom and pop filter)
DJ Software: Mixxx
the one track that never gets old for you?
The Zoo by Scorpions because of the absolutely amazing guitar parts, and overall it is just a great song.
Name one song that got popular but you can’t stand?
Despacito, for obvious reasons
If your five-year-old self suddenly found themselves in your body, what would they do first?
probably go play fortnite on my computer smh
Favourite flavor of ice cream?
Cookies and Cream
Most beautiful place you’ve been to? (We’d love a pic if you have one!)
Mackinac Island Michigan
pineapple or no pineapple?
Yes, pineapple on pizza is great. You simply have to have the right toppings on the pizza for it to taste good. If you go ahead and order a cheese pizza and yeet some pineapples on top of there it’s gonna be disgusting - try Canadian Bacon, Onions, and Pineapple - it tastes great. (I get that exact combo from Papa John’s)
Dogs or cats? Do you have any pets? (We’d love a pic!)
Dogs - I have both a cat, and a dog, here is my dog, his name is Forest and he is a purebred german
Youtube or twitch?
Both - Youtube is great for creating content, and twitch is great for interacting with the community.
Operating systems - PC/Mac, iOS/Android?
PC - Android
Seaside or mountains? Elaborate?
Seaside, nothing beats warm weather, but I love the mountains as well.
Favourite sport to play/watch?
I swim, and I like watching hockey.
TV shows or movies?
Is a hotdog a sandwich?
no a sandwich is a hotdog
