Presents Radiotherapy

The longest running community radio show in the universe dedicated to all things health and medicine and well-being - curing Saturday night hangovers every Sunday morning since March 1996!

How did you first connect with Triple R?

I first listened with very, very innocent ears in the '80's - a friend's older brother tuned us into it, and then a first stint volunteering at Victoria St Fitzroy in the early '90's.

What/when was your first show?

I joined Talman's team on Radiotherapy on Sunday, May 3, 2009 - 11 years to the day that I'm writing this!

What's your favourite Triple R story?

Bron Burton's Radiothon themed cup-cakes that she makes for the green room phone volunteers every year.

What's your favourite other Triple R program and why?

So many great shows to choose from. At the moment, for talks, I'm loving Amy with Uncommon Sense, and for tunes, Annaliese with Neon Sunset.

What does Triple R mean to you?

A vital, irreplaceable ingredient in the cultural mix of Melbourne and for connections to places, people and ideas far and wide; it a privilege to be a part of something like that.

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?

Husker Du's 'Flip Your Wig'. I was once snowed-in for 2 days travelling in Mongolia and it was actually pretty much the only (tape) that was being played in the hostel - so at least I already know I can survive repeat playings in a confined space.
