I’ve been a broadcaster on and off for about 15 years but a music tragic for as long as I remember. The year is 1987. Age 12. A slumber party with my gal pals. They, singing Jason Donovan songs in to their hairbrushes and purring about how dishy he is. Me, dramatically bellowing out The Smiths and waxing lyrical for longer than was palatable about how intriguing and complex Morrissey is. When I didn’t get invited back, and with nothing to lose, I just went ahead and spent the rest of my life banging on uncompromisingly about the music I love to anyone who will listen.

How did you become involved in the station?

Mostly I just started harassing people at station until they invited me to come for training and hangs.

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

  • Micah P Hinson – Micah P Hinson and The Gospel of Progress
  • Weird War – Weird War
  • Patti Smith – Horses
  • Public Enemy – Fear of a Black Planet
  • Everything-obvious-like-The-Triffids-and-The-Gobetweens-and-Beyonce-and-Sonic-Youth-and-The-Pixies-stuffed-in-to-one-album-cover-so-NASA-would-think-it-was-just-one!

I know, I know. I just cheated on my homework.

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

Independent media is really important. I like the idea of making a contribution to it enduring against the odds.  I’m also fond of the sense of community at RTRFM and that it fosters further afield.

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

I’m a newb but you’ll be the first to know when I career in to inevitable oddities!

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

Drastic on Plastic. Because women FTW!

What do you do in real life?

I’m a Consultant. I work in Organisational Behaviour. Humans are complex creatures and things get interesting when we have to spend time at work with other humans. I examine that and try to help.
