How did you become involved in the station?

I moved here from Berlin a few years back, and had been listening in via the web-stream for a few years already. The shift in time difference always put me in a differed head-space, unexpected music helped concentrate on my attention on projects. I offered to help man the phones at Radiothon, and was suitably impressed to hear someone play Dianogah on Drivetime.

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

Right now?

  • Miles Davis – Bitches Brew
  • Albatre – Nagual
  • Beach House – Bloom
  • Staer – Daughters
  • Fela Kuti – Army Arrangements

This is likely to change as rapidly, and drastically as the Martian weather.

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

Good people with a serious passion for music in all its forms is great! Being blown away by a new discovery, and having the opportunity to share that with a circle of people, radiating outwards through the city, is such a privilege, and something that I absolutely adore being part of.

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

No comment.

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

It’s really difficult to say. I recently did an all vinyl show – which was amazing fun. It’s great to be able to present songs and musicians that have had a lasting effect on your life, and opened your eyes to divergent sonic possibilities – so I guess an El Ritmo-themed version of Difficult Listening…

What do you do in real life?

I studied painting in the Netherlands, and it’s been the other huge influence on my way of thinking: www.ronanlane.com.
