Midnight Special is a late night chat show with a different talented host each week. Special guests – the best guests ever – will sit down for a casual, loose conversation on the mic, either live in the studio or pre-recorded at earlier hours.
From musicians, writers, artists, actors, comedians and whoever has an interesting story to tell, the Midnight Special is an opportunity to go beyond the stock questions and understand the creative people in and around (and even outside of) Perth in deeper ways.
Tune in to hang out. Broadcasts Thursdays at 11 pm on RTRFM 92.1
Miko is a jack of all trades and master of none. She’s done a lot of things for the love of it and wouldn’t have it any other way. Miko is a big believer in having lots of life experiences rather than material things (but she still buys too many artworks that she has no space to hang in her room and she owns way too many clothes with animals on them).
How did you become involved in the station?
I can’t really remember! Maybe it was volunteering in the phone room for Radiothon in 2012? I had been a long time listener and decided that would be a fun way to give back to the station. It took me a few years to finally find the time (and feel brave enough) to do the radio training course in 2016 and now I love presenting!
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
The best thing is meeting all the people involved at RTR! They’re the loveliest bunch of people and it really does feel like a big family. And also all the amazing music you are constantly exposed to.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
I don’t think anything strange has happened to me… yet?
On one of my first shows I got a call from Joe from Midland though, which was definitely a surprise and a super exciting honour!
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
Drastic on Plastic because there is so much great music by women to share. Or Golden Apples of the Sun for lo-fi psych soundscape goodness. If only I still followed drum n bass because it would be a dream to present on the show that got me into RTR – Wednesday Full Frequency!
What do you do in real life?
Real life doesn’t seem to stay very constant for me, but at the moment I am studying to become a human rights lawyer.
