Chrissy Savage aka CoCo
Hi, how are you?
How did you become involved in the station?
I knew friends who were involved with the station, which inspired me to get on board. I first started out in the office doing admin, and helping out with events, whilst waiting for a spot in the broadcasting course to come up. I took the course and the rest is history.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
- The Doors L.A. Woman because I listened to it so much growing up that I don’t think I could ever get sick of it, and it would stop me getting homesick.
- The Velvet Underground because it’s a great album to listen to on a Sunday morning.
- Brian Eno’s Music for Elevators because it helps me get to sleep and would probably be a really good soundtrack to living in outer-space. I could trade this in for
- Ustad Ali Akbar Khan or Dirty Three for the same reasons.
- A collection of Billie Holiday – because it’s Billie Holiday And Rowland S. Howard (Pop Crimes or Teenage Snuff Film) to keep the blues at bay.
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
Meeting people, listening to heaps of different genres, being up to date with new music, and working with an organisation that gives so much to the local music scene at all levels.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
Whilst I was presenting Morning Magazine for the first time, the station went off air. I think I was so nervous that my bad vibes caused the studio equipment to malfunction. I still don’t know how long it took to fix and go back on air, but you can only go up from there.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
Homegrown, Out To Lunch, and Drastic On Plastic cause I like local music, new music, and women in music.
What do you do in real life?
I am doing events management for the Perth Jazz Society, and teach classical piano. I also like to make art and music in my down time.
