First Entry- Helloooo : It's On-Just Listen


First Entry- Helloooo

by Ian Smith on 03/15/11

Hello world!  Welcome to the ITS On Productions blog. 

What a journey it has been for ITS On.  Incorporated in 2004, right after I graduated from Elon University, and moved to Tampa, FL.  I produced an informercial for a golf company and did a few corporate videos to start growing my business. I also spent nights and weekends searching for a club that would give me a shot to DJ.  After being in the Elon "bubble" for so long, I didn't realize how difficult it would be to get things going.

After about a year of "grinding," I was given an opportunity to DJ at Splitsville in Channelside (Tampa, FL).  I still spin there (6 years and counting), and it really broke me into the Tampa music scene.

The DJ thing was nice BUT it wasn't paying the bills...SO I decided to get involved with a company that my Dad and his partner started back in 1996.  I won't bore you with that part of the story.  To fast forward, they sold the company on 12/31/2010.

NOW that brings me to the current situation of ITS On Productions, DJ Figmint AND the all new DreamCloud Radio Hits!!  This is definitely the beginning of something I have been "dreaming" of since I first started broadcasting WAAAAYYY back in my freshman year at Charlotte High School.  You gotta love how much technology has grown over these past years.  It's AMAZING!

Well, I think this is a good first blog.  What do you think? :)  Check in as often as you can for updates.  I plan on updating regularly (we'll see how that goes...)  Y'all will have to stay on me. 

More to come! Stay "tuned."

Musically yours,

Ian "DJ Figmint"
