Harry Malcolm


After an extended period living abroad and getting exposed to some incredible music and people I started listening more and more to RTR and really liked what I heard. I had a few friends who had done some work for the station so I sent in a volunteer form and fronted up in my Sunday best to badger Chris Wheeldon for work.

How did you become involved in the station?

Started off as a humble volunteer in, did a bit of office stuff and the training course and it progressed from there.

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

Impossible question, but:

  • The Bees – Octopus
  • Ace – Five-A-Side
  • The Avalanches – Since I Left You
  • Steely Dan – Pretzel Logic
  • Telefon Tel Aviv – Immolate Yourself

Ask me again in a few days.

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

The people, and being able to play music I love, sometimes to an audience. Doesn’t get much better than that!

The Kingston biscuits that mysteriously materialise at the station from time to time are a highlight too. Thank you, biscuit fairy.

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

DJ Scott Ludz rocking a turtleneck and chain at Radiothon last year, and forever securing my vote in the process.

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

Hard to say, they’re all great! Artificial Intelligence would be sweet though.

What do you do in real life?

I study Psychology and am lucky enough to be writing my thesis on Music. I also work at a pool.
