Broadcaster, podcast, youth worker, animal lover and DJ Olivia Chau has been stalwart of the music scene in Limerick for over 13 years now. If she isn’t running, promoting, or playing at gigs, she is at gigs. Having started as an Indie DJ over 13 years ago, she now plays a blend of Disco, Nu-Disco, ’80s, and ’90s R&B.
In 2019, Olivia became a Craic Mechanic of Sing Along Social, a no commitment choir for people who can’t sing well. Just this year in March 2020, she started her own radio show called Don’t Kill The Beat on Limerick City Community Radio, which you can listen to every Wednesday night from 7 pm to 8 pm on LCCR.ie. She is also the host of a new Limerick-based podcast called ‘Chancers with Olivia Chau”.
On this month's podcast Ann and Emma talk to Olivia about how she stepped into the male-dominated world of DJing with a little help from her friends. She offers some wisdom and advice for any aspiring DJs out there, and some insight into the industry for those of us just curious about how it works.
