Josef Barker



I’m studying a Bachelor of Communications degree at ECU Mt Lawley majoring in broadcasting and journalism, and I’m in my last year. I’m also a huge motor racing fan V8 Supercars, F1 and Moto GP mainly.

How did you become involved?

I just walked in off the street just like anyone else can. However I did have previous community radio experience.

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

  • Times of Grace – The Hymn of a Broken Man
  • Pierce the Veil – Collide With The Sky
  • Periphery II – This Time It’s Personal
  • Emarosa – Relativity
  •  A Day to remember – For Those Who Have Heart

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

It sounds a bit self absorbed but I really enjoy playing my music on the radio. Sure people may not like everything I play but they surely like some of it. It’s also great playing a bracket of artists that are completely different to one another.

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

Nothing really strange per se, just awesome music ah ha ha

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

It would be Burn the Airwaves so I could play more punk and hardcore stuff that I don’t know.

What do you do in real life?

Besides what I mentioned before I like television and going to gigs.
