I have been presenting programs on RTR for most of its life – including 6UVS-FM – , starting off with the legendary reggae program Vershun Galore and progressing through various iterations of Global Rhythm Pot to Sunday Morning Coming Down. My musical interests range from reggae (of course!) through world music, jazz, electro, and soul to country. I reckon Sunday Morning is the best program in the world because its presenter collective covers so many musical bases that are unexplored anywhere else – except on RTR, of course!
How did you become involved?
I originally worked the desk for the Jazz and Saturday afternoon shows on 6UVS-FM and gradually progressed to presenting shows – in particular, Vershun Galore, Perth’s first reggae program. From there I progressed to the various world music shows as well as developing a love for the more eclectic atmosphere of Sunday Morning Coming Down.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
Anything by Anouar Brahem
What is the best thing about being involved with the station?
A great opportunity to listen and learn about new kinds of music – and then being able to introduce them to the listenership.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you in the RTRFM studio?
Our engineer George the K coming through the old basement studio window at 6UVS bearing liquid gifts to help the night shift along!!
If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?
Global Rhythm Pot – because it’s a great show and I could play world music for 2 hours without anyone complaining!
What do you do in real life?
Teach Travel and Tourism and also Festivals and Events at Uni.
