It’s your second year having a radio show. What brought you back?

“I think it’s fun that they give you so much freedom at WKCO. I have some friends who have radio shows at other schools and they say it’s very restrictive so it’s nice that I can come in and play what I think people want to hear but also what I’ve been really into at the time. I like that it changes up things from what you hear on the radio. Plus when you listen to other people’s radio shows, you can see a lot about them reflected through the songs they play. Like, ‘Oh, this person likes this? That makes a lot of sense.'”

Do you have a particular theme for the show?

“Part of it is … what I’m feeling and what puts me in a good mood  but it’s also new stuff that isn’t necessarily easy to find that I find through my procrastination. It’s things that would be a little more difficult to find but [are] really interesting.”

Aside from your radio show, what else are you involved with on campus?

“I’m an SMA so I’m involved in that pretty heavily. I also am in two a capella groups so that takes up a lot of my time.”

Last year you were in Ransom Notes. What specifically made you want to join Owl Creeks?

“I really liked the vibe they have. I think they’re very talented people but they also have such good humility. They approach the music because they love it, you know? I also think there’s a lot to be said for an all girls group.”

If you’re making your ultimate playlist, give me six songs you can’t leave off.

“My music taste changes a lot but right now:

Sad 2 – Frankie Cosmos

These Days – Nico

Unlucky Skin – Shakey Graves

Turns Turns Turns – Majical Cloudz

17 – Youth Lagoon

Roll Together – The Antlers.”

Finally, what’s a fun fact about yourself?

“I think ice cream is the best food on the planet. It can be probably the best training food but also food for the soul. I don’t believe it’s unhealthy.”
