Make sure you do what they say and don’targue back. Everyone will be treated they want to be treated and no-one will be treated the waythey don’t want to be and everyone will be friends and get along.We also DO NOT accept Illegal songs here at Madhabbo as DJ’s shouldn’t have songs that are Illegaland it can also have unprofessional name such as ‘gotye-somebody that I used to know (HD VIDEORECORDING OFFICAL)’ A name like that for a song looks very unprofessional and will not be suitableto be played on the radio and will result in a warning. We at least have One Illegal song which is stillunacceptable and shouldn’t be played by if you are going to be playing it make sure you have asuitable name such as ‘Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know’ which looks professional.Swearing songs shouldn’t be played on the radio as it can harm young children who might be tunedinto the radio and might want to hear the explicit language coming from your song. It is easy to gethold of a clean version of a song and they are easy to buy off iTunes or other music stores. We dostress that you listen to yours when bought and make sure none of them are swearing as if reporteddue to this it could cause you receiving a warning.Attending and Booking slots are also a high expectation at Madhabbo. All Djs and Head DJ’s shoulddo a minimum of 4 slots per week and attend them. If you are unable to attend your slot pleaseunbook, 2 Hours before your show.

would be nice to see DJ’s helping out others and getting them to the high expectations. Eventsduring your show what be Handy and can also get the listeners up. The best ideal event is a giveawaywhich someone at Madhabbo could host for you and means you get the certain amount of listenersyou are asking for and when got that amount, you say the code and people will receive free furni.This is the best event to get the listeners up and also gets everybody tuning in and applying.When on air it would be nice if you didn’t mess with the volume of the song and left it how it wasand it also sounds better when you don’t talk over the song and you wait till your backing trackcomes on.We hope you follow the rules that are listed above and by following them you won’t get awarning but if any of these aren’t followed it will result you in receiving a warning.

Connecting to the Radio (NWC)Connecting to the radio is one of the most important things that you will need to knowwhile you are here at Madhabbo. We want DJ’s connecting fast so we don’t lose anylisteners and we are online most of the time. You might be wondering what NWC means,well it means ‘next word connect’ so when someone writes that to you on the computeryou will put ‘ok’ and there next word will probably be ‘CONNECT’. Below you will see what amessage should say when you are about to connect from one DJ to another-:
Abbie: Hey are you ready to go on air?John: Yeah.Abbie: 1:30mins.John: OkAbbie: 1:00mins.John: OkAbbie: 30 secsJohn: OkAbbie: Alright NWC(Abbie pre types Connect, then watches the time for the last song and once he gets to about5 sec left. Presses enter to send his "Connect" then quickly disconnects from the radio)(John minimizes the chat window and click on his encoder with mouse hovered over thestart button.)Abbie: Connect!(John sees the chat blink and hits the start button)BAM he’s connected and it was smooth and good to go.You will have a faster connection if you follow this tutorial and take it into consideration. Double Djing At Madhabbo, DJ’s might want to get another member of staff on air to DJ with them which are known at Double Djing. Here at Madhabbo, we use VAC (Virtual Audio Cable) instead of stereo mix and we also use the program Skype to call another member of staff so you can double DJ. All DJ’s and Head DJ’s will need a Double Djing Licence whichmeans you are able to double dj at Madhabbo. To get a double djing licence, you will needto contact a radio manager which will give you a trial on the trial radio and they will makesure everything is suitable for your show and there are no major problems.

anyone else the connection details or there will be serious issues and please check that youhave the right information before you DJ. Getting the Listeners up (Tips)At Madhabbo, we want the listeners to be at least 15 for each show you DJ. We know thereis times where you might only get 2 but we still want you to try your best and not want youto give up in anyway. The best of getting the listeners up is by doing a competition on air orhabbo and you can say ‘ Will do a competition at 15 listeners’ and this means the listenersthat are tuned in will get spamming so there is more listeners and the competition starts.The best competitions to do are -: Giveaways, Fallin Furni, Cozzie Change, Guess thePassword, Name That Lyric and many more. Giveaways are the best kind of way to get thelisteners up so if you have a lot of furni on habbo it is ideal to do a giveaway on at least oneof your shows and it gets the listeners up very high.Also spamming the likes of msn, Skype, BBM and social networking sites will get peopletuning into Madhabbo and coming back for more.We hope that you have understood what is wrote in this DJ Handbook and you takeeverything that has been written down into consideration and follow it in the right way.
