PROGRAM:

Slipstream Radio.

WHERE IS ‘HOME’? 


Gleniffer.

HOW DID YOU COME TO BE LIVING IN THIS AREA?

Grew up in the rainforests of Dorrigo.

WHAT DOES YOUR PROGRAM OFFER TO LISTENERS?

The idea is that the “slipstream” is the flipside of the mainstream. I try to showcase artists that you wont find topping the charts of todays misled music scene. Lots of new releases and and also some old favourites. And no boundaries when it comes to genre.

WHY DiD YOU GET INVOLVED IN TRIPLE B?

As a singer/songwriter, for me, music is life.

I love sharing new music that I’ve stumbled upon with anyone whether it be my friends of the wider community. And so I was offered a spot on the 2 Triple B training course back in 2010. The rest is history

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT ON AIR AT TRIPLE B?

I just keep it real. Music. Gardening. Labour. Tea.

IF YOU WERE TO STAGE YOUR OWN FESTIVAL IN BELLO, AND COULD HAVE ANY THREE HEADLINE ACTS WHO WOULD THEY BE?

Toots and the Maytals, Jeffery Martin and All Them Witches
