The Next Pony DJ is a contest and a game and an audition. We are looking for talented and dedicated people to be our new disc jockeys for Fillydelphia Radio, Alicorn Radio, and Luna Radio. And best of all, the listeners will be the ones to decide who sticks around by voting on Twitter. The DJs will be put on teams, or “Parties”, and be trained by the other DJs and staff for the station affiliated with that party.

The top three DJs will be given DJ jobs on each of the stations.

More after the break!

So right now we’re in phase 1. We need DJ’s to submit an application. In order to be eligible you must meet the following requirements:

We reccomend the My Little Pony Music Archive. Songs played should be mp3 format, 128kbs.

It has to be a decent microphone. No $20 headset mics, no onboard mics.

Social Networking
Twitter is required. Facebook, additionally, is preferred. Linkedin, Tumblr, etc. are optional but the more socially active you are, the better.

A 20-minute demo set
