Finding stories and meeting people – including now husband and co-producer Adrian – from reporting in Northern Ireland to freelance writing for environment magazine and radio production on community radio at Fremantle, Noongar and RTR radio station.

How did you become involved?

Understorey collective were open (as always) to new members and it was gooooood timing.

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

  • Tomita’s version of Holst’s ‘The Planets’;
  • ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ original version;
  • Brahms’ ‘Requiem’;
  • Mozart’s everything (some USB would hold it all);
  • anything of Bjork’s.

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

The great eclectic mix of programs, presenters, listeners, history, capacity, and the connection to the community – like a modern version of a village.

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

Nothing too strange – rarely been in considering we produce Understorey off-site and load it to the cloud for pick up and playing as a pre-record.

If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?

Hmmmm… probably the R&B show, being the music I like singing along to most, and playing the mandolin is a dream… so maybe something like that.

What do you do in real life?

Working out what I want to do when I grow up (51 now, better get on with it)
