    I'll have to say the obvious: call the radio station and ask. Call that someone and ask.

    Thread moved to beginners.

    You asked how to get a residency on a radio without any other specifics. I'm afraid I am unable to guess those specifics until you mention them.

    Record some demo mixes and send them to every other tech house/minimal radio out there. Don't mention that you've been "practising for a year" or you won't get any replies.

    Even if it's spelled correctly.
    I've been practicing for 45 years and I can't DJ for crap.

    Mentioning how long you've been practicing is just telling them that you have zero experience.
    It's like asking to drive a car for a racing team and mentioning that you have over 1,000 hours of experience playing F1 2020.

    Don't be discouraged by these answers. The road to success is long and hard. In fact, most do not arrive. Make the commitment, master the skills, do the work, take advantage of opportunities, and you'll be just fine.

    Shouldn't you be practicing?
