AKA Crabby, DJ Crabbe, Bige Crabbe, Mumma Crabbe etc. My music taste has always been eclectic – I’ve soaked up everything from my Mum’s ABBA collection through to the most out-there leftfield punk; even if I’m not hooked automatically, new and exciting music always intrigues me. When I first moved to Perth I immersed myself in local gigs, eventually winding up volunteering for RTR and now I love being involved in the music community wherever possible.

How did you become involved in the station?

I started off volunteering at the admin desk and very quickly realised how special the RTRFM community is, a few years and a radio training course later I’m still here!

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

How many kind and passionate people I have met along the way, RTRFM is built off the back of the most dedicated people in the industry and it’s a gratifying experience to be able to work alongside them to make great radio.

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

There’s been some pretty weird nights in the studio hosting Up Late or Snooze Button, too many to mention.

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

The last time I answered this I said my ideal gig would be an Out To Lunch show – dreams really do come true! I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of heaps of my favourite collectives on RTRFM so far but a show I would love to present and haven’t yet is Ambient Zone.

What do you do in real life?

Probably too much – I work in the arts, run gigs over at Crab Claw, and DJ here and there
