Fancy Yourself as a Superstar DJ
Help your ears and enjoy music;
Ever thought you could be a superstar DJ or a quizmaster extraordinaire? The the first-ever Don't Lose the Music Week is taking place from 4-10 September 2006. Music lovers are invited to hold a Don't Lose the Music benefit gig, club night or quiz and raise awareness of the ways people can protect their hearing and enjoy their music for longer.
DJs, musicians and quizmasters, whether professional or giving it a go for the first time, are asked to get their family, friends and colleagues together for a fun and funky time during Don't Lose the Music Week. The new awareness week is being launched to encourage young people to protect their ears so they can enjoy the music they love for longer.
If you fancy yourself as the next Jools Holland or Mark Lamarr, why not email firstname.lastname@example.org for a free copy of the Don't Lose the Music quiz and get people to pit their musical wits against each other in your own home, local pub or workplace? Or maybe you could put on a Don't Lose the Music benefit gig or club night in your local social group or nightclub and have people tearing up the dance floor? A guide to help you organize and publicise your event is also available.
Lisa McDonald, RNID's Campaigns officer for RNID's Don't Lose the Music Campaign says: "We would be delighted if music fans show their support for Don't Lose the Music Week by organising a Don't Lose the Music quiz or benefit gig in their local area. We hope that, whilst everyone is having fun getting together for the events, people could also spare some time to consider all the different types of music they love and how important it is to protect their hearing to enjoy the music for longer."
RNID, the national charity representing the 9 million deaf and hard of hearing people in the UK, runs the Don't Lose the Music Campaign. It aims to raise awareness amongst music fans of the dangers of over-exposure to loud music.
