I’m just a nerd who really likes to listen to music and collect records. I have semi-decent beat-matching skills which help during the Looney Choons show, and I also make electronic beats heavily influenced by hip-hop on my MPC1000.
How did you become involved?
I first got involved with the station as a guest on the Powerjam show in 2002. Since then I’ve also presented Snooze Button, Up Late and Golden Apples of the Sun.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
- Prefuse 73 – Meditations Upon Meditations
- Prefuse 73 – Vocal Studies and Uprock Narratives
- The Avalanches – Since I Left You
- DJ Day – The Day Before
- TWIGY – Akasatana
What is the best thing about being involved with the station?
Being able to play music outside of the mainstream, being part of a fantastic group of people who share a love for music, and getting to show off my record collection on air.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you in the RTRFM studio?
Back when the station was at the old UWA building and presenting the Snooze Button show overnight on my own, creepy things would happen just outside the studio door like furniture moving on their own and shadows moving in the security monitors. I swear that building is haunted.
If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?
I would like to present the Black And Blue show. Being heavily influenced by hip-hop I also listen to jazz, soul and funk, and have a lot of that I really want to play on air.
