When did you get involved with 88.1FM?
Fall of 2014
What show(s) do you currently host on KVSC and what’s your favorite to listen to?
I’ll be hosting the morning show part II on Mondays. And I really like to listen to the Progressive Rock Show and the Root Cellar.
Please list some of the artists and musicians that you consider a must play on your show(s).I’m still getting used to KVSC’s huge music library but some of my favorite things I’ve played so far have been, Flogging Molly, Metric, Cage the Elephant, Apples in Stereo and The New Basement Tapes.
Why are you involved with independent public radio at 88.1FM?
I took COMM 270 through SCSU, which led me to getting a job in the production department at KVSC. From there I figured it would be in my best interest to complete the radio training and viola, here I am.
5. What is in your CD player, iPod, or MP3 player right now? (Be Honest!)
I have a whole bunch of stuff on my iPod. Stuff that I listen to a lot would be, No Doubt, Florence + the Machine, Nirvana, Marina and the Diamonds, Alice in Chains, Bush, AWOLNATION, Daughter, Mumford and Sons, Noah Gunderson, The Beatles, Fiona Apple, Paramore, Starset and much more.
6. Please disclose the most embarrassing music moment or concert you’ve seen or album you’ve bought (perhaps even shameful).
This is more of a period in my life rather than a moment, but when I was in high school I was obsessed with the band Three Days Grace. I was a total fan girl. My bedroom was basically a shrine to the band. In fact, I’m still living with the repercussions of my actions, namely my personal email address. I hardly ever give anyone my email because I’m so embarrassed by the name.
7. What are your hobbies and interests?
I really like comic books and just reading in general. I also like dinking around in Photoshop and making gifs and junk.
When you are not at work or KVSC where can you most likely be found?
Free time is hard to come by in my life, but when I do get it I usually spend it catching up on TV shows or messing around on the internet.
What’s the most challenging part of being a radio DJ?
The thing I struggle with most is talking to the audience without seeing an actual audience. It usually just feels like I’m talking to myself.
What do you think is the future of radio?
I think radio will continue to get more specific and niche. And I think stations will continue to incorporate other media into their programs.
