On Air : Listen

A Jane-of-all-trades with an interest in just about everything and still no idea what I want to be when I grow up. Will never grow out of playing dress-ups.

How did you become involved?

As an avid listener to Global Rhythm Pot I would often call in to find out the names of the tracks. One Radiothon, while I was volunteering in the phone room, I bumped into Nic K who was happy (I think!) to put a face to the voice of the person who kept calling the show and bugging him for track names. He invited to come along and be part of the on-air GRP team.

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?

Constantly sniffing out new music.
Challenging my smarts with interviews on a broad range of topics – I’m always learning about stuff – from trapdoor spiders to business plans.
RTR events are incredibly welcoming, particularly as a solo go-er. Such a wonderful community feel at all of the events.

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

Someone who had tuned in online from Brazil, emailed me and then gave me a call during the show. Strange and awesome! (And THANK YOU! How great is technology when it works?)

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

Sunday Morning Coming Down. A mix of genres to suit my short attention span and a totally Shazam-able play list.
I also love Drastic on Plastic for bringing attention to the lack of female-led music on the airwaves and for it’s diversity of sounds.

 What do you do in real life?

A bit of this, a bit of that and a lot of etcetera etcetera – professional bellydancer, art model and workshop facilitator, tender co-ordinator and general administrator.
