Presenting: Siamese Dream
A Perthling… I grew up in Bassendean (6054!) and have a love for music, havin a chat, my family and my community. I’m more of a head nodder than a chin scratcher, but I do carry a little book to take notes in when needs be. RTR has always been a big influence on to be honest I’m quite often in complete awe just being inside the building.
How did you become involved in the station?
I’d acquired the taste for community radio at another station a while ago now and after (half) a lifetime of listening to RTRFM and a few years spent building up the guts to apply – I finally registered for the presenters training course in late 2012.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
Ahhh geez–tough one. Can I start with 4? In there would be East West – The Butterfield Blues Band, Either Check Your Head or I’ll Communication – Beastie Boys. (I’d flip a coin on the day.) The Perfect Prescription – Spacemen 3 and Blues for the Red Sun – Kyuss.
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
RTRFM is my favourite radio station in the world for so many reasons. The diversity in music and the people who are involved are very passionate about what they do make for a very inspiring thing to be a part of.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
Sitting alone in a studio at 4am feels kind of strange… but I kind of like it too.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
Golden Apples of the Sun, because it’s a great show, you could get all freaky plus Sunday arvo radio just feels right ay?
What do you do in real life?
I have a little family and design/build the interwebs. I’ll chat to you on the street if you give me the chance.
