Presenting: Drastic On Plastic Homegrown

How did you become involved?

I have been a listener, subscriber and Radiothon volunteer for over 12 years. I was invited to join the Homegrown team in 2006 when I was working for WAM – The West Australian Music Industry Association. Since 2012, I have been an occasional presenter on Drastic on Plastic.

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

Flamin’ Groovies – Groovies’ Greatest Grooves

The Pixies – Doolittle

The Painkillers – Feel the Pain

The Slow Beings – We Know Why the Earth Moves

Urge Overkill – Saturation

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

I like being part of the team that brings sounds and stories you can’t find on-air elsewhere. It’s a buzz to do a band’s first on-air interview too. I also love volunteering at events and during Radiothon too. It’s great to catch up with the other RTR FM presenters and gig-goers.

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

All sorts of strange things happen on Homegrown, particularly when we have bands playing live tracks or when it is Radiothon.

If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?

I’d have to choose El Ritmo. It’s terrific to have such cool, up-beat tunes to listen to on a Tuesday night. Presenting that show would mean that I have an amazing and tasteful record collection!

What do you do in real life?

I work in the WA public sector, look after my family and study part-time. I have been an RTR FM Board member since 2011.
