Presenting: Rhythm Trippin’
Started listening to RTRfm since 92ish (Steregoround anyone?), DJing when I left school and started guesting on Rhythm Trippin in 1997, the good old days when you had to cart gear up 3 flights of stairs at the old UWA studios. Since then I have co-hosted Full Frequency with Dart on Wednesdays and more recently Bass Check on Tuesday nights.
During the day I am a sleepy mild mannered web dork and by night a DJ, cyclist, cricket fanatic and avid beer appreciator.
How did you become involved?
Through good friends Waz, Shep and Billy B inviting me to guest on their show back in the days of RTRfm at UWA.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
- The Stone Roses – The Stone Roses
- My Bloody Valentine – Loveless
- My Bloody Valentine – Isn’t Anything
- The Carpenters – Greatest Hits
- Logical Progression – LTJ Bukem
What is the best thing about being involved with the station?
Being involved in a community radio station, surrounded by like-minded people and getting to play music that doesn’t get heard anywhere else. It’s a total privilege.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you in the RTRFM studio?
Haha. I used to do the 2am to 6am shift on Sat/Sun nights for many years, so I can think of plenty of stuff…. One of the most bizarre I can remember was being halfway through a show and Mark Genge just appeared from thin air in the studio. Mark Genge was a pretty odd dude at the best of times, but seeing him at 4am on a Sat/Sun just appearing freaked me a little.
If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?
Full Frequency. It’s the pinnacle of coolness on RTRfm.
