Ask O’Brien – ‘If You Were Not a DJ, What Profession Would You Be? Why?’
Today's question is a great one but tricky to answer. 'If you were not a dj, what profession would you be? Why?' Although I've been in radio broadcasting for 24 years and it's the only real job I've ever had, I only got into it because of my love for music. I've been a songwriter/musician most of my life.
Most people try for their dream job when they're young and then settle down. I did it backwards. My ultimate dream was to have a family, so I did that first. Since the singer/songwriter profession lends itself to the term 'starving artist' it was a no-brainer to land a solid income and keep chipping away at the dream.
All that being said, I'm also back in school to become an elementary school teacher. I love kids and if I can't be making music or around music then working with children is a close second. It probably doesn't sound very rock and roll but you asked.
