How did you first connect with Triple R?
As a 16 year old in my school common room Spiderbait's 'Old Man Sam' came on the radio. I took note of where the dial was and went searching for the station when I got home. Surprise, surprise it was RRR.
What/when was your first show?
I was first interviewed on Radio Marinara in 2012 (about a PhD i still haven't finished) and then joined in 2018 as the only triple threat on the team (I can SCUBA, Surf and Science.)
What's your favourite Triple R story?
Linking back to how I connected with RRR, in 2018 I got to pull on the boots for the Megahertz and before the game I found myself getting a hug from Spiderbait's drummer and Rockdog Kram, who was one of the reasons I was standing in that spot.
What's your favourite other Triple R program and why?
Vital bits - when you work from home a lot your breakfasts go something like this - Breakfasters, Breakfasters, Breakfasters, Breakfasters, Breakfasters, Tim! Who hoo, it must be Saturday! Many times Tim' s voice has been the only reason I know the weekend has begun.
What does Triple R mean to you?
It is like getting a big hug from all the good parts of a city. To me, Triple R is that person at a party you want everyone to meet because you know they will get along.
The studio door has accidentally shut with you stuck inside. If there was only one CD in there with you what would you want it to be and why?
The Idiot Box Soundtrack - It has a hodgepodge of Australian artists that I grew up getting sweaty to in venues around the state, and as I always wear shorts in the studio i could relieve those days and jump around like a fool to keep warm. That is, until my back packs it in after the first song.
