I know there has to be lots of DJ's on here in the same predicament as me. I live in a small town on the west coast of Florida that is 50+ miles away from any major city. The biggest thing that happens here is the manatees show up for the summer. I am a student living off of my tuition refund and unemployment. How can I gain some in-field experience, get my name out there, and do it without breaking the bank?
