How long have you been a host at WTJU? 10 years
Why did you become a WTJU host?
Initially I was just curious about radio and I very quickly caught the radio bug and haven’t left since.
Tell us about one of your biggest gaffs while in the studio:
I have absolutely forgotten to turn the microphone off and wound up singing along live on air more times than I care to admit.
Favorite moments in the air studio?
My favorite thing is getting a phone call right after a relatively obscure track plays and having a chance to introduce a listener to a new favorite.
If you could interview anyone on air, dead or alive, who would it be?
Tom Waits. I just imagine he’d give a fascinating interview that would go in interesting directions.
What are your guilty pleasures?
Guilt is a form of judgment of one’s passions and I try not to judge my passions.
What are your passions outside of music?
Feminism, news, nature, community, and wellness
Why does WTJU matter?
Radio is an essential conduit of news and entertainment that’s freely available over the airwaves and readily accessible to most everyone in a community. A community that is connected is a community that thrives. WTJU helps to foster that community connection.
