DJ production techniques

I’d just like to ask how many audio producers have a background as DJs?
I always find it really difficult to choose which songs to use, and this is because my background in audio production has been in editing, audio restoration and using library music and a few pre-made effects.
I’ve never done music station work but am always super-impressed by the big CHR imaging, especially the Australian stations. But when I listen to them I have no idea where to start!
Software like Mixed in Key is good for key and BPM, but what about mood?
I’ve been thinking about going on a DJ course with stuff like Serato just to learn different ways of doing transitions, but do producers in radio stations use this? I don’t think so…
