Kristie Butler is a musical, friendly and talkative soul who found herself mixed up in the world of RTRFM in 2011. She naturally ended up on Drastic on Plastic due to her fondness for geeking out about music and getting on her feminist high horse. If you find yourself listening to her show, why not call her up? Then you can geek out and get on high lady-horses together.
How did you become involved?
I involved myself with RTR as part of my uni course at WAAPA in 2011, and I suppose I couldn’t stay away afterwards!
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
- The Dresden Dolls – The Dresden Dolls
- Modest Mouse – This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing to Think About
- Neutral Milk Hotel – In The Aeroplane Over the Sea
- Sleater-Kinney – One Beat
- Bangs – Tiger Beat
5 albums, though. That’s a rough deal. I’d probably sneak some Bowie in there too so I could bounce around in space to Space Oddity. RULES ARE MEANT FOR BREAKING!
What is the best thing about being involved with the station?
The RTRFM community is fabulous. They give me warm fuzzies.
What do you do in real life?
By night I skate around under the pseudonym Bowie SinSkates (a little nod to Bowie’s in Space by Flight of the Conchords, as well as David Bowie himself) and play roller derby. I play guitar and sing in a couple of bands and I have a cactus son. That about sums me up really.
