Presenting: Up Late
I’ve been told more than once I’ve the perfect face for radio – so with sound advice in my back pocket (thanks mum) I dived into the RTRFM community. I didn’t realise two and a bit years later I’d be knee deep in early mornings or crazy local gigs or obscure sounds from all ends of the earth. But I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
How did you become involved in the station?
I started my RTRFM journey in the news department but have since moved behind the scenes and presenting programs.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
That’s a real Sophie’s choice eh!?
- MGMT – Oracular Spectacular
- Nas – Illmatic
- Frankie Cosmos – Next Thing
- Cut Copy – bright like neon love
- Holy Fuck – Congrats
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
RTRFM lets you see things from a point of view you might not have considered. Whether you come in once a day, once a week or once in a blue moon you’re bound to meet someone new, hear something new or learn about something you didn’t know existed.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
Besides the fact they haven’t changed the locks on me yet… My first ever on air experience in life was me announcing former Out to Lunch presenter Dave Cutbush as Dave Nutbush.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
It’d be Homegrown for sure! There’s nothing more satisfying then hearing bands from your own backyard and watching them grow.
What do you do in real life?
I sell suits to men and news to the masses.
