Presents Wax Lyrical
How did you first connect with Triple R?
Started listening every now and then in my later years of high school, when I got irritated with how nearly every commercial announcer sounded like they were on the verge of an orgasm morning, noon and night! Things HAD to get better... and they did...!
What/when was your first show?
'Cocoa Butter' back in '06; so named for the timeslot - being 8-10pm on a Saturday night, when most people would listen in on their way out for a night on the town. And the universal thing for sistas is that before we head out for a night on the town - we rub cocoa butter on our skin...
What's your favourite Triple R story?
There are waaay too many to tell but they all begin and end with one person... Tim Thorpe!
Your favourite other Triple R program and why?
Couldn't possibly pick one, but a huge fan of 'Vital Bits', 'Off the Record', dig Tuesdays cos of the Banana Loungers and 'Spoke' and always enjoy hearing Ms Parsons during any of her wonderful fills. And Steve Cross never ceases to amaze me with the musical journey he takes me on when he jumps behind the controls on the 'Beat Orgy' mothership...
What does Triple R mean to you?
Community, connection... PASSION!
The studio door has accidentally jammed shut with you stuck inside. If there was only one CD in there with you what would you want it to be and why?
Norman Jay's 'Good Times London' - which would keep me from getting too bored with one style of music. The comp captures everything from soul, hiphop, reggae, funk and a whole stack of timeless classics. I'd be stuck inside, but lawdy I'd be happy until a rescue team arrived...!
