I’m an amateur cook and heavy music lover.
How did you become involved in the station?
I volunteered in the phone room for Radiothon a few years ago and then did admin duties for a bit while I was at uni.
I love music and going out to gigs, and playing music on the radio was something that I’ve always wanted to try doing but it took me a while to get around to it. Last year I finally took the plunge and did the RTRFM radio training course.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
- Veruca Salt – Eight Arms to Hold You (it was the first ‘alternative’ album that I bought and something I always go back to listening and never tire of)
- Tool – Anema (I named everything about myself after a Tool song – Blue Apocalypse)
- Tied & Tickled Trio – Observing Systems (my perfect jazz album)
- Colditz Glider – Properties of Light (I recently rediscovered it in my CD collection and I’m always blown away by how good it is when I listen to it)
- Caribou – Swim (something to dance to)
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
The freedom to play the music that I like and sharing it with listeners.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
I meet some strange but lovely people during changeovers for the graveyard shifts. I mean we must be pretty strange for voluntarily staying up/waking up at ridiculous hours of the morning to present on RTRFM right?
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
Music + Food = Life. I’ve always wanted to combine the two and now in someway I have being a part of The Food Alternative.
I also love filling in for Drivetime as I get to play a bit of everything.
What do you do in real life?
Make shit happen.
