Always inspired by stories of liberty and human rights.  And a sense of obligation to the dazzlingly complex, beautiful, and remarkable natural world.  Freelance writer and social change agent, including as manager of various community organisations, including Steiner schools, and teaching sustainability and creative writing (at different times) at university.  In my spare time I try to play guitar, and pick up the violin.  (But put it down just as quickly). I currently present, produce and run Understorey on Wednesdays 11:30am.

How did you become involved in the station?

It is so far back in the mists of time, I can only remember faces, stairways, heavy doors and a red light saying “on air”.  The rest is current affairs, mostly.

If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

  • Stories and Poems of Rumi, by Ashley Ramsden
  • Beethoven’s Fifth or Seventh (loud)
  • George Gershwin (brilliant)
  •  Mary Black’s Collected
  • One Righteous Man: The Story of Wallenberg, by Syd Lieberman

What is the best thing about being involved in the station?

Many of us enjoy RTR’s independent local music feel, but we enjoy another kind of independence: RTR FM is independently funded, which means that it is able to hold the state government and local governments accountable.  How good is that?

What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?

I actually learned how to pre-produce programs.  But it took the demise of reel-to-reels to do it.

If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?

Something on Sunday would be good – either Sunday Morning Coming Down (9am), for its mellow mix; Plucked Strings (6pm) for its eclecticism, or Full Circle for its heart and soul – but Morning Mag or Indymedia would be great for keeping in touch with current affairs from the grass roots!

What do you do in real life?

Aspire to live ethically and have loads of fun – simultaneously
