Presenting: Difficult Listening
Bloomsday baby; eats with relish the inner organs of sockless hipsters; proud baby boomer; Whitlam-era university graduate; voracious consumer of live performance; careful benefactor; practising pedant.
How did you become involved in the station?
Lost in the mists of time; 25+ years involvement; very quickly hooked for life.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
- Steve Reich, Music for 18 Musicians;
- The Who, Quadrophenia;
- Anton Bruckner, Symphony No 6;
- King Crimson, Lizard;
- Frank Zappa, Burnt Weeny Sandwich.
(Hopefully the internet is good enough on Mars to be able to download the other couple of thousand on the list.)
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
Presenting exciting, confronting, confusing, and hopefully pleasing music.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
It’s all strange.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
Sunday Morning Coming Down, cos it seems to be the final resting place of superannuated groovers.
What do you do in real life?
Nothing very interesting. Isn’t RTR FM real life, or have I missed something?
