Host Profile: DJ Drakon
What is the name of your show? Keep Calm & Rock On
Is there a story behind your on air name? There really is no story behind it. Just thought it sounded cool.
What's your show about and when does it air? It is a very strange combination of electronic music and hard rock. I generally follow a format where I start off with an hour of dubstep and hard electro, and then I'd do an hour of rock stuff, and then the last hour is whatever i personally feel like playing along with any requests i got during my session. I used to take the graveyard shift on earlier terms, but for now my show airs on Thursdays from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm.
How long has your show been on the air? This is currently the 7th B-section term I am on the air
What do you like to do in your spare time? I personally play a lot of video games like Dragon Age and Skyrim along with quite a bit of TCGs (trading card games) like Magic: The Gathering and Hearthstone. D&D is also in my repertoire and I watch a lot of anime stuff. I like to think of my self as a "Well Rounded Nerd"
Tell us about a funny incident that happened during your show. One of the audio files I ended up getting for my show was corrupted and ended up cutting off about half way through. I ended up scrambling for a few seconds trying to cut down on the dead air time. It was terrifying at first, but looking back on it now, it was pretty hilarious.
Have you gotten any strange requests during your show? Yes. It was Principles of Lust by Enigma. Very strange song...not inherently bad. Just strange.
