I love movies, so I review them on-air, and I also draw comics/make zines under the title A Rich Tapestry, and finally, help host/produce Magnolia’s Late Night Live, the DIY local live talk show of choice.
Around 2010, Peter Barr knew I was hosting The Room for Luna Leederville and presented me with the opportunity of a lifetime: would I mind interviewing Tommy Wiseau over the phone from L.A. live on air? From that unforgettable moment, I wound up reviewing movies with Paul Grace for Movie Squad on Breakfast With Barr, which was a real treat to spend time with two outstanding gentlemen. Now Movie Squad is with Simon Miraudo and Caitlin Neinaber for Breakfast With Caitlin, so even though the players have changed, the time remains the same – Fridays 7:30am – and the talk is as entertaining as it ever was! More recently, I’ve started hosting overnights like Snooze Button, usually with Tom “T-Bone” Reynolds as a co-host, comingling our music tastes and our questionable banter.
The sense of community, most definitely. From meeting the people that work and volunteer here, there is a clear love of radio, of music, and of people. It’s infectious – particularly when the listeners give back that love and respect! That, and the RTRFM party where two separate listeners confided that their favourite Movie Squad reviews were about the movies we hated (Simon’s dislike of Me and Earl and The Dying Girl was highlighted, in particular).
The first thing that happened to me at RTRFM: interviewing Tommy Wiseau. There’s some weirdos at RTRFM, sure, but you can’t beat that guy: “No, I don’t call them sex scenes, I call them love scenes.”
Disco Science, most definitely. In terms of genre and style, that is my favourite, full stop.
Work and teach at a uni, walk and listen to podcasts, etc.
