When we sit in front of that mic, we must remember that we are broadcasting to the world. We must "communicate". Imagine you are speaking to a good friend and you are discussing something that is of interest to you both.
Lower your pitch if necessary because you must project the very best qualities of your voice. Lighten up. Be confident. If you're not, the listeners will pick up on this.
Develop your own style. Sure, we can learn from other DJs. But, at the end of the day, it is your own personality that will be projected.
Practice your programme. Plan your programme. Understand your material, your artists/songs.
At all times, remember that regardless of whether you are a volunteer or a fulltime paid DJ, you really do have the greatest job in the world. Never ever take this for granted. Communicate, communicate, communicate and enjoy this wonderful vocation.
