How long have you been a host at WTJU?
Started shadowing in the summer of 2019 and co-hosting a show winter of 2020.

Why did you become a WTJU host?
I’ve always loved listening to college radio because I love the freedom of what the hosts get to play. I love when a host is unpolished and there are “ums” and “uhhs” when back announcing. I love hearing the pops on old vinyl and when a queued song doesn’t always play on time. The ability to play a song released ten minutes ago or 60 years ago is really exciting. I wanted to join in on that fun!

Why should someone tune into your show in particular?
I always have fun hosting Foggy Notion and I hope my enthusiasm translates to anyone listening.

What are your guilty pleasures (Music or otherwise)?
Toxic by Britney Spears. I mean, come on.

Would you rather be trapped in an elevator with a banjo player, a bagpipes player, or an accordion player?
Banjo!
