How and when did you first connect with Triple R?
When I first moved from Perth to Melbourne in 2004, my friends and I got a lease on a slanty brick veneer house just across the road from Triple R on Nicholson Street. I was immediately fascinated by the big brick building that emitted amazing indie and alternative music through the airwaves at all hours of the day. But it wasn’t until I started driving regularly for work a few years later that I became a daily Triple R listener. Now I tune in every morning on my way to and from work in the western suburbs, and get a warm fuzzy community feeling whenever I see a Triple R bumper sticker.
What does Triple R mean to you?
Good music, important conversations and that very particular Melbourne sense of humour. Independent media is an increasingly precious resource too, so I feel proud to support as a subscriber, listener and now as a Queer View Mirror host.
What's your favourite Triple R story?
I must admit that since we started presenting a summer fill-in show during the height of Melbourne lockdown in 2020, interesting stories were fairly light on the ground. Now that we are getting out and about again, I am really looking forward to meeting the whole Triple R volunteer crew and making some precious memories.
Describe your happy place.
A cosy bar in Footscray with good friends and delicious food.
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?
Probably one I hadn’t listened to a million times already! I have pretty eclectic taste, get a lot of my new music recommendations from Triple R, so I’m sure I’d be interested in having a good long listen to whatever the last presenter had left in there.
