I have worked as an announcer and "disk jockey" for CITR 101.9 FM from 1987 to 1996
under the handle "Lupus Jan de Bergh". During this time I was host to my own show entitled
"Wolf at the Door". Largely this was a techno music program, and I "spun discs", both traditional
vinyl and compact disc format.
This was what the genre terms "campus radio". We are not subject to some of the limitations imposed on commercial stations by the CRTC, but are subjected to others which commercial stations are exempted
from. Fundamentally, these stations serve to introduce listening audiences to up-and-coming artists
who do NOT have recording contracts or tour schedules formalized yet. We also do obligatory public
service and charity work "pro bono".We are strictly forbidden a commercial "Top 40".
As part of the CRTC regulations required for campus radio, we were obliged to do spoken word
This was a 25% content volume requirement! I fulfilled this by reading from classic horror,
science fiction and detective stories as well as some pure "human interest" texts such as work by William Goldman.
These texts included excerpts from "A Clockwork Orange" by Anthony Burgess, "Frankenstein" by Mary
Shelley and the murder mystery "Sacrificial Ground". Content was serialized weekly from show to show.
Most often only the highlights of these novels were read.
Additional to this I submitted opinion/editorial pieces in the form of playable cartridges under the
administrative heading "Insight". These were entirely journalistic in nature and dealt with leading
stories locally, nationally and internationally on a weekly basis. They would be played on the evening
news at 6 p.m. at the discretion of the daily "anchor".
I haven't worked in this medium to any degree since March of 1996. Nonetheless, I am interested and
available for all hours to work for you.I wish to remain resident in Vancouver, as I am currently enjoying
a good deal on rent. This means I'm available for work in the Metro Vancouver area only.
Currently I do not possess a telephone of any kind, not even a mid-twentieth century land line
with a rotary dial!. Nor do I possess PERSONAL internet technology in my home or on my person.
You wouldn't believe how MUCH this cuts DOWN on monthly "overhead" expenses! Obviously,
however, this makes me somewhat difficult to get ahold of before 8:30 a.m. and after 4:30 p.m.
Monday to Friday, or on weekends at all, as those are the hours of my current job-search venue.
I will also need advice on how to submit voice audio recording sample, which format you prefer,
and HOW it is to be submitted.
As I have been away from this field since near the end of the twentieth century, over two decades now,
I also have no meaningful references to give you. Thus, this submission is seriously truncated and,
so far, missing some vital ingredients you may need to accept this application.
With this in mind, please read on and advise.
