“One must imagine Sisyphus happy.” – Albert Camus

How did you become involved in the station?

In 2008 I was interviewed on Morning Magazine about the Chinese Government’s reaction to the Guns ‘n Roses album “Chinese Democracy”. A few other little spots came out of that, as did Fair Bump Play On as part of Monday’s Breakfast With Barr. Eventually I decided the time was right to get on the other side of the desk.

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

Not sure how much influence Mars has on these selections…

  • Yankee Hotel Foxtrot by Wilco
  • Let It Be by The Replacements
  • Love Is Hell by Ryan Adams
  • Our Endless Numbered Days by Iron & Wine
  • The Long Goodbye by Raymond Chandler (BBC Dramatisation)

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

Being part of an alternative voice, which is important in the kind of world we find ourselves in.

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

Peter Barr’s muesli consumption. It’s unrelenting.

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

Morning Magazine is always a good listen and makes you think about things worth thinking about.

What do you do in real life?

Stuff and/or things.
