Presenting: Homegrown

I believe whether or not you have a contingency plan for the inevitable onset of the zombie apocalypse says a lot about you as a person. I think Perth is an amazing, beautiful place to live and more people should recognise this. I also write for various local publications including Drum Media and Unlimited magazines and am involved with the local music scene in various capacities.

How did you become involved?

Coming to RTRFM as a student about to finish my journalism and broadcasting degrees I was given the opportunity to dabble in various areas of the station including producing, scripting, interviewing and presenting, all in the presence of very cool people. So I stayed!

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

  • Sigur Ros – Hvarf/Heim
  • Manchester Orchestra – Everything To Nothing
  • Brand New – The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me
  • Radiohead – The Bends
  • The Books – Lost & Safe

Presuming there was some means to play said albums.

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

No matter how hard I have to work, or how early I have to get up to do it, I always feel fulfilled and valued as a contributor. RTR is right up there as one of my most worthwhile pursuits.

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

A man once cooked pizza for us, live on air. The studio smelled of halloumi and tuna for quite some time.

If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?

I rather enjoy Snooze Button despite the hour. The only thing better than spinning my favourite albums is the thought that someone out there is enjoying it just as much or perhaps, discovering something new.

What do you do in real life?

I work a bunch of different jobs to keep the routine a little less regimented and little more fun.
