I grew up with my parents playing 50s and 60s music nonstop at home. My childhood provided me with solid foundations to have a love for music. Since then my tastes have grown broader and my appreciation for local culture has been cemented.
In Feb ’08 I was jamming with some friends over in Highgate. We thought it would be a good idea if we had our own radio show. Well, that didn’t quite happen. I ended up volunteering for the station. About 10 months later I was encouraged by the station to do the course, so I did. Since then I’ve fell in love with the community spirit behind RTR FM and broadcasting tunes that are a bit different.
What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
You meet a lot of different people through RTR, all of whom are passionate and interesting.
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
Golden Apples because I find that style of music so soothing. I’d also do OTL as it is pretty fun finding new music.
