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?
Well, I guess in terms of being surprised that would be Brad Paisley - one of my all time best friends got me into him and I’m sorta hooked.. even though I dislike admitting it.
What’s your guilty pleasure song?
Coldplay - Fix You
What made you want to become a DJ?
Well I was a DJ here beginning of the year and I left around 6 months ago, I guess what made me want to come back was how at home I feel and the amazing community that I just could not get elsewhere.
If you ever found yourself auditioning for a music reality TV show, what song would you sing and why?
I don’t think “sing” is a word you can describe more like “scream” but I would probably say Twenty One Pilots Ride or something.
What’s your DJ setup?
Well I use a program called “Virtual DJ” to do my shows which is rather uncommon as its more a software used for other DJ needs but I have a MIDI DJ controller which I use with it, in terms of capturing my voice I use an Audio Technica AT2020 which does the job fine as well as creating jingleys for other djs when they need them.
What’s the one track that never gets old for you?
Probably Lada Gaga Poker Face. I don’t know why I just could listen to it on repeat and scream the lyrics over and over everytime.
Name one song that got popular but you can’t stand?
Big Shaq - Mans Not Hot.. or any grime for the matter.
If your five-year-old self suddenly found themselves in your body, what would they do first?
Probably press every button on every controller on my desk.
Favourite flavor of ice cream?
Mint all the way.
Lasagne with Garlic Bread wins me over.
Most beautiful place you’ve been to? (We’d love a pic if you have one!)
My bed generally is the best place, in terms of beautiful probably Beachy Head which is a cliff in the UK, I don’t have a picture to hand but google it and you will see how high it is.
Pizza, pineapple or no pineapple?
NO PINEAPPLE DO NOT RUIN PIZZAS BLAHHHH!
Dogs or cats? Do you have any pets? (We’d love a pic!)
I do not have a pet right now, used to have a hampster and a cat at one point I guess if I was to chose I prefer dogs all the way.. in fact I really want a husky one day.
Youtube or twitch?
Asked me this two years ago I’d say YouTube but since Logan Paul became a thing… Twitch all the way.
Operating systems - PC/Mac, iOS/Android?
PC for gaming, Mac for editing. Android for daily use iPhone for the garbage can.
Seaside or mountains? Elaborate?
Mountains I would chose as it gives me a free feeling, I’m not a fan of beaches as whenever I go in the sea and then the sand sticks to me I end up with a rash all down my legs which as you can tell is never fun.
Favourite sport to play/watch?
My favourite sport to play is Basketball, I can spend days playing it - I’m not 100% I’m any good at it but I enjoy myself, I watch football or for americans its “soccer” I’m not a huge fan but if there is a game on and I am free I enjoy watching it with a nice cold drink.
Tea or Coca cola.
TV shows or movies?
Netflix. So none.
Is a hotdog a sandwich?
Is a pizza a cake?
