Anyone put in front of a radio mic, even if he's never seen one before, will instantly switch into a confident DJ-persona, complete with nickname, {{Catch Phrase}}s and [[DangerDeadpan a smooth]] [[BadassBaritone baritone voice]]. Otherwise they might become an abrasive DumbassDJ. Whatever style he chooses, there won't be a second's hesitation, confusion, dead air or any other problems you might expect of a NaiveNewcomer.

* In ''Series/{{Mash}}'', the outfit obtains a mess of swing records. Radar (the normally timid type) takes the records and creates a makeshift radio station over the speakers, with him as DJ. That is, before [[spoiler:[[EarWorm Colonel Potter makes him play "Sentimental Journey" over and over and...]]]]

* Vince Fontaine in ''Film/{{Grease}}'' is an expy of the Dick Clark archetype; a radio DJ fronting a Bandstand-type programme. Nearest UK analogue would be Tony Blackburn or other Radio 1 DJs, who fronted TopofthePops.

** Travis from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout4}} is a deliberate inversion, coming across as shy and awkward, if not cringeworthy. The player can boost his confidence through an optional sidequest.

Added DiffLines:

* Inverted in ''Film/ReservoirDogs''. The DJ for K-Billy's Super Sounds of the 70's delivers every line in an extremely deadpan, straight up boring voice, even as the lines he's reading sound like they were made to be delivered by someone playing this trope straight.

* Double subverted with ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': One episode had Brian end up with a radio show after criticizing the local {{Dumbass DJ}}s. His show started off intelligent, {{NPR}}-ish, and performing poorly with listeners. After Stewie prank calls him a couple of times, the [[ExecutiveMeddling executives force Brian to add him to the show]], at which point it devolves into exactly the kind of thing he was complaining about earlier, complete with HowardStern-esque antics and annoying sound clips from films including ''Film/SixteenCandles'', ''Film/AnimalHouse'', and the CrossesTheLineTwice example of ''Film/{{Philadelphia}}''.

* Rose, aka Mother, the communications officer of ''PhulesCompany''. In person, she's so cripplingly shy that hardly anyone has ever managed to speak to her face-to-face, but over radio equipment she becomes talkative and even flirtatious. Apparently she had a stutter as a child and became afraid of the sound of her own voice, but later discovered that she didn't mind so much when she was speaking into sound equipment.

* There's a character like this in ''Film/HighSchoolMusical''.
** The character of Jack Scott is endemic to the stage version. There's no such character in the movies.
* Lee Jordan of ''Film/HarryPotter'', who regularly loses control of his temper when commentating at quidditch, becomes incredibly smooth when it comes time to be the VoiceOfTheResistance.
