Presenting: Artbeat Golden Apples of the Sun

I’m just a guy obsessed with listening to music, talking about music and writing about music. I’m also hugely interested in arts and culture, LGBT rights and community building.

How did you become involved?

After many years of listening I joined the staff of the station as General Manager from 2009-2011. Since moving on to other ventures with my career I’ve continued as a volunteer presenting a variety of shows including Golden Apples of the Sun, Mutation, All Things Queer and even the occasional edition of Morning Magazine.

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

  • Philip Glass – The Low Symphony
  • Edie Brickell – Picture Perfect Morning
  • Roaring Jack – Cat Among The Pigeons
  • Massive Attack – Blue Lines
  • Primal Scream – Screamadelica

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

Without doubt it’s meeting a huge range of people. From the other presenters, to the plethora of guests who come through the building and the listeners who call up and drop by.

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

Nothing would stike me as strange in the RTRFM studio, strange is the norm. I know I’ve had mountains of fun in there.

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

I’d love to present Beats Per Minute, I have a deep love of shameless Hi NRG dance music. I think Colin Bridges show is a secret gem that’s locked away early on a Friday morning.

What do you do in real life?

I’m manage and write for a series of publications including OUTinPerth and Commercial and Industrial Real Estate magazine, as well as developing projects for television and theatre.
