LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
Jervis supposes the same qualities that would make one a performer or comedian, perhaps would serve a DJ well, as well as an imagination, creativity, and a genuine interest in people, places, and things.
“It’s like being a musician or an athlete. Sometimes you’re just born with a certain skill set. I’m a drummer and I honestly don’t remember not knowing what to do when I sit down behind my kit. But you still practice to perfect your craft. I want to do my best show ever on the day I retire. When you lose that fire, that’s when you know you should hang it up. All of that applies in broadcasting. I consider myself fortunate to be able to making a living at this. It’s something I feel in my heart I was born to do. Some of my high school buddies and I recently got back together to play at our 30-year high school reunion, and I was looking back at an old yearbook. My aspiration in life said, ‘be a DJ.’ I had forgotten about that, but it made me grin. So, for the young people, some words to live by — ‘find your purpose.’ We all need a purpose.”
