About Vig Wig

I began writing as a kid.  In high school I was renowned for off-the-wall papers.  In the 70's, 80's and 90's I managed to get lots of letters published in the local paper, including a few political cartoons.

 I turned song-writing and tune-creating to have an outlet for music and to have a hobby that I enjoyed besides fishing.  Beginning in 2009, I settled on irony as my initial topic.  I still make tunes with a twist, but I have branched out as the people of Mixposure chat  have given me confidence by their reviews and by listening to what my songs have to say, if anything.

I bought Sony Music Studio to make my tunes with.  I do everything the hard way . . . by ear.  I still struggle with making a tune that is 3D instead of 2D.  Everything is trial and error on my part, I don't "see" musical notes and I definately can't read music.  I am amazed by how long it takes to mae a 2 or 3 minute song and how quickly it goes by when you listen to it.

Influences:
Farrell Jackson, LP, Kalo, Joseph and the rest of the gang

Vig's Place tonight at 7 PM EST


By vigwig, 2014-11-19

DJ Vigwwig is on the air Wednesdays at 7 pm Eastern time.  He plays almost anything and some of his own.  He is not limited to any one genre, but hip hop and rap should include a warning when there are explicit lyrics or a green light when there are no explicit words in your song otherwise I will assume there are explicit words and won't play your rap or hip hop songs.  I will make an effort usually to play requests but due to band widths on my end and programs running simultaneously, I can rarely download a track while on the air.  By the same token, I have difficulty opening email to pick up a new tune while on the air.  I do have a vault of over 1,500 tracks so I might already have it and this is the best case scenario for playing a request while on the air.  I am very accommodating :-)

Feel free to pm me while I'm on the air because I will also be in the chat room.  I reserve the right to turn off my pm's if I become overwhelmed with them.  We are all there to have fun so please keep it light hearted and in English (a little non-English is tolerated, especially if you can't speak English).  I have a warped sense of humour so be on the look out for off the wall comments.  I will feel like you don't like me if you disappear without saying goodbye.

If you have a nickname I don't remember or recognize, be aware that I will ask you point blank who you are; if you have a page at the Mixposure site or if you are just a passing shepherd or idle person waiting for the bus.  Water is free from the cash bar and ice will run you 75 cents unless it comes with a drink.  Pickled eggs are for paying customers only and worms in your drinks are extra.

No smoking unless you land one of the barstools with a smoking cone (also known as "the cone of silence).  It is not recommended you have eaten beans or boiled cabbage or BBQ before entering a smoking cone or it may turn into an exploding cone or a gas chamber, but if you must please have a designated body taker-outer.
