I’ve always been more of an owl than a lark. The still quiet hours are when the best things happen. I even chose my career as a journalist because Evelyn Waugh informed me via the novel SCOOP that “journalists as a rule are late risers”. So it doesn’t surprise me that I enjoy being in studio late at night playing amazing songs.
How did you become involved in the station?
I have been listening to it for years, then I became a gold subscriber because I love going to In The Pines and The Winter Music Festival, and then all it took was a break in my work schedule and a bit of encouragement from a friend and I found myself in the presenters course and on air.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
Experiencing being part of a vibrant and loving community that works hard and has a great time doing it.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
Nothing really strange has happened (except that time I did a double shift in the middle of the night and was super-hyper-sleepy but still managed to press all the right buttons). But I am a bit incredulous about how much fun it is to be involved.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
Home grown – because I love hearing the way local musicians sonically describe this place.
What do you do in real life?
I run the journalism major at ECU.
