How and when did you first connect with Triple R?
Was it my friend and SYN FM co-host who introduced me to RRR? It’s too far back in the beer-soaked annals of history for anyone to know for sure. I do know that I was as keen to get involved as I was to listen. So after a stint in London, hanging out at hospital radio (there is no community radio in London) I signed up for the then six-week broadcasting training course ASAP.
What does Triple R mean to you?
I treasure Triple R so dearly in my heart. The place itself is a community of evolved, evolving, intelligent, passionate people who together hold up the sky for the values, culture and music they love.
What's your favourite Triple R story?
So many to choose from. Receiving a vintage copy of Smash Hits in the RRR post after a Radiothon phone room conversation meant a lot. Breakfasting with Damian Lawlor – I’m sure his favourite story is when my alarm didn't go off and he was left to breakfast and play The Church by himself for two hours. Interviewing people I admire is always a highlight (Kate Tempest, Guy Garvey in particular) and having unexpected, joyful chats about music with fellow broadcasters.
Describe your happy place.
Hanging out with my best and favourite little person.
The studio door has accidentally jammed shut with you stuck inside. If there was only one album in there with you, what would you want it to be, and why?
Songs In The Key Of Life by Stevie Wonder. That record is like love in audio form. Pretty sure it would sooth me in my hour of need.
