Presenting

How did you become involved in the station?

I’ve been an avid RTRFM listener / subscriber for a long time. A bunch of circumstances led me to connect with some lovely folks who inspired me to do the presenter course. And voila!

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

  • Sigur Ros – Ágætis Byrjun
  • Portishead – Roseland NYC Live
  • Everything But The Girl – Walking Wounded
  • Massive Attack – Mezzanine
  • Radiohead – Kid A

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

Discovering and sharing new music, supporting musicians – local, national and those from afar; and ultimately being a part of an incredible community.

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

As a new presenter at the station, I completely forgot how to answer the studio phone. It rang incessantly one morning during Snooze Button so I was just like, “Thanks everyone for ALL of your calls!” so anyone trying to get through would hopefully believe I was under the pump (at 4.30am) and not just tech-challenged.

I’m now 100 percent competent with the complex studio phone system.

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

Golden Apples of the Sun! Because dreamy soundscapes and electronica on a Sunday afternoon…

What do you do in real life?

Once upon a time a government employee for years, I now make music, mostly! I’m in a band and I do a bunch of fun things including voice-overs for TV and radio commercials.
