Presenting: Up Late
How did you become involved in the station?
I’d been a long time fan and listener before helping out at this years Radiothon. After that I completed the training course and jumped on a few late night shows.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
- Eddy Current Suppression Ring – Primary Colours
- The Clean – Boodle Boodle Boodle
- Elliott Smith – Either/Or
- Boards of Canada – The Campfire Headphase
- Built to Spill – You in Reverse
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
RTRFM presenters are given complete autonomy to program their shows so you hear such a range of music, nothing is ever to eclectic or obscure for RTR.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
I did have an interesting encounter with Colin of Beats Per Minute. While practicing in the early hours of the morning I could see on the cameras a guy standing on the table in the kitchen, turns out he was cleaning the roof at 1AM.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
Siamese Dream – I’m just a big 90’s fan.
What do you do in real life?
I study Sound and Radio full time at Uni, work a couple of casual jobs. Besides going to gigs I try and get outside for the occasional hike.
