Presenting: The Mag

A long-term musician, producer and writer, I’ve recently discovered a love of broadcasting. I am addicted to news and current affairs (especially sports) and love getting behind the microphone on The Mag to explore the topics of the day by speaking to some incredibly interesting people. It’s the immediacy and unpredictability of radio I love, as well as a chance to provide a perspective on a story that may not be covered in mainstream media. Spending time in the RTRFM studios and office is also a great deal of fun.

How did you become involved in the station?

As a guest musician plugging shows. Started as a newsreader 2013, wormed my way into more airtime by appearing on Fair Bump, Play On and White Line Fever. I’ve been producing The Mag since November 2014 and presenting shows on-air since July.

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

  • Beach House “Teen Dream”
  • Something for Kate “Beautiful Sharks”
  • Swervedriver “Raise”
  • Sonic Youth “Washing Machine”,
  • Boards of Canada “Geogaddi”

Those are my picks right now and if you ask me again in an hour, it will be a different five.

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

The people – they really make the station something you want to be a part of due to their dedication and enthusiasm. It’s inspiring.

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

Any of my on-air interactions with Peter Barr…

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

Siamese Dream or Posted – because I am a child of the 90’s and I also have a deep love of weird, 20 minute instrumental guitar music.

What do you do in real life?

I’m a musician, freelance journalist and video/audio producer.
