How did you become involved in the station?

I caught up with Chris Wheeldon as I was looking to get involved as part of my Journalism degree. He offered me a role as volunteer Assistant Producer for The Mag once a week. Needless to say, I jumped at it!

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

  • Röyksopp – The Understanding
  • The Crystal Fighters – Star of Love
  • Judge Jules – Ministry of Sound Classics
  • The Cure – Greatest Hits
  • Blood Orange – Coastal Grooves

I feel like I cheated because the Judge Jules compilation is a double – wahoo!

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

Working with Pete Barr is definitely a highlight in more ways than one, but the amount of cool stuff you can do is amazing. From the presenting course to hosting music shows, doing pre-record interviews and running with story ideas – I love the amount of input you have in community radio.

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

Learning how to write leads for The Mag in about five minutes (maybe ten). When I first started over a year ago, it honestly took me about 45 minutes, poor Pete! It’s pretty incredible how efficient you can become, I thought I’d never get the hang of working to such quick deadlines. (I’ve also gained an addiction to those vegemite and cheese scrolls from Lawley’s Bakery).

If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?

Full Frequency. I would love to mix vinyl and play dance tunes for two hours flat. That is utopia right there.

What do you do in real life?

I’m in marketing at a coworking space, a features writer for both a music publication and business magazine (chalk and cheese I know!) and finishing off a Communications degree full-time.
