Presenting: Drastic On Plastic
She is a person who knits and sews cute creations, reads books by Kant and Jane Austen (not co-authored of course, but that’d be amazing), drinks tea, watches indie films, writes songs, and is constantly inspired and humbled by the amazing experimental music she discovers every week bringing you Out to Lunch. She has a degree in Philosophy, English and Communications, a Cert IV in Training and Assessment, and works at RTRFM as a trainer.
How did you become involved?
I volunteered one day to help on reception and file CDs, answer phones for Radiothon and lend a hand at events. Within months I became immersed in the heart of the place. I was trained in presenting and now host Out to Lunch every week.
Since then I’ve served on RTRFM’s Board of Directors, Programming Committee, In the Pines Band Selection team, and I run training for our presenters old and new.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
- Joanna Newsome – The Milk Eyed Mender
- Explosions in the Sky – Take Care, Take Care, Take Care
- Do Make Say Think – Other Truths
- Built to Spill – Perfect From Now On
- The White Stripes – White Blood Cells
But ask me tomorrow and this list would probably be different.
Best thing about the station?
Hands down it is the people. In the incredible staff, the inspiring listeners and the musicians we meet and support (and in turn are supported by) I have found the most beautiful family.
A show that’s not my own?
Full Frequency! I’m not just a guitars girl, and one day I may get the chance to prove it.
What do I do in real life?
Try to avoid being static and tired, and strive to be as creative as possible.
