The Whipcracker

Friday 31st May / posted by Chris Wheeldon

If you have listened to the station over the last 15 years, you may have heard the name The Whipcracker. The Whipcracker is RTRFM's longest running office volunteer, she is a staple of the station and without her things may just fall apart at RTRFM.

Cherie Carlo moved to Perth in the late 80's and found RTRFM while searching for Soul music on Perth radio. Fellow RTRFM volunteer Natasha Woodcock decided her story needed to be told and as part of a university assignment set about telling us The Whipcrackers story.
