On Air : Listen

I am the bolshie, bossy eldest of eight kids who grew up out bush then, as an adolescent, in the wilds of Lockridge. I brought myself up reading the adventures of people in other places, and as soon as I could I was on a plane overseas. Since then I’ve been reading and travelling my way through my own adventures.

How did you become involved in the station?

I decided in 2015, quite randomly, that I wanted to be on radio. It took me another 18 months before I was in Perth at the same time the course was on. I loved every minute, and am now the most mediocre presenter on the overnight team.

If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

Mad Rush  – Sally Whitwell (playing Philip Glass)

Undeniably – The Whitlams

Fever in the Road – The Bamboos

Hatful of Hollow – The Smiths

Slow Down – Keb Mo

What is the best thing about being involved in the station?

Feeling like part of something bigger than myself. Getting to discover new music through other presenters, but also on little digging missions I set for myself in the middle of the night, and then sharing them with people I can’t see (but have named in my head)

What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?

Being locked out at 3:30am with a phone that was flat. What I went through that night to try and get inside woud bring you to tears.

If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?

Spoonful of Blues – full disclosure, part of this is because this program has one of the best names on the schedule. The other 90% is because the blues speaks to that happy/sad part of me.

All City – There is something about Australian HipHop in particular that is so full of joy, while at the same time politically relevant, that makes me want to dance and change the world at the same time.

What do you do in real life?

In real life I’m a hundred different things. I’m a reader and storyteller and writer of stuff I don’t share much of yet. I get super excited about social change, and so I’m working towards an MBA in Social Impact. And I’m a nurse, working with people experiencing homelessness around Perth.
