A childhood spent in the Great Southern to a soundtrack of Boney M, Abba and Glenn Campbell with a sudden veer to the middle east. Very Gemini i.e. talks a lot, mega multi tasker, dresses like Peter Allen with ADHD, is rarely still (no rest for the wicked or those with short attention spans).

How did you become involved?

I kept calling Nic K to ask what he was playing, then volunteered for a few Radiothons and met Nic K in real life.  “Come and help me do a show” he said.  “We need another presenter” he said.  “It won’t hurt a bit” he said.  And here I am.  Scars safely out of sight.

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

  • The Rough Guide to the Music of Madagascar
  • Experience Morocco
  • Halim by Natacha Atlas
  • Kal by Kal
  • The Hour of Two Lights by Terry Hall & Mustaq

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

It pushes you to investigate new music – then when you find the good stuff you can share it with everyone.

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

Every Radiothon is a little odd with the Global Rhythm Pot Allstars making their annual appearance.

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

Sunday Morning Coming Down.  They play the best and most eclectic range of music.  I’m always impressed by their collections and knowledge.  BIG fan.

 What do you do in real life?

Administrator by day, bellydancer by night.
