"A star in a bra"
" I found out more about you in that hour than I've done in six months of working alongside you" Colleague of Woodpecker Wooliams (aka Gemma Williams who was a guest on the show)
Kairen says: “For myself I am able to produce and present an hour of programming in which I sit, chat and play music with one member of the music industry that I have chosen. No adverts and 80% chat alongside about 6 pieces of music. That simply wouldn't be considered in another radio station. I wouldn't be allowed to talk to a single guest for that length of time. I know that the listeners love it and also that my guests relish the experience (once relaxed) and their friends and fans find out things about them that they would never have discovered in any other interview. Radio Reverb creates great radio and I rejoice in the fact that there is no rigid identity to its output. I think it is delightful that there is literally something for anyone and also that I hear something that isn't right for me because that means that it is perfect for someone else. However turning off is not so easy as one would think as my own inquisitivity wins you over, makes you stay listening and often makes one a fan of that show!”
The August show is packed with great chat with Marc and Joe from rock outfit Echotape. The hour is dedicated to them and their new album Wicked Way see echotape.com for more information. Wicked Way will be availabke as a download and/or vinyl.
