Show: Food For Your WangThang
When are you on? 3rd Sunday of every month, 12-2pm
What type of music can we expect to hear on your show?
An eclectic range of artists who may be considered groundbreaking or inspirational in one way or another.
How did you get into this type of music? How did you start DJing?
I’m not really into music. Or radio. Actually I used to have a phobia of microphones. But then one day I was accosted by a pantomime horse in the street outside The Barnfield Theatre. It was being interviewed by BBC Radio Devon, concerning it’s latest performances, but just then, the interviewer was struck down with a mild but acute heart attack. Realising that there was no-one in the vicinity able to take over, live on air, I cunningly saved BBC radio from an embarrassing radio silence, by leaping in and conducting the remainder of the interview with Gerald the horse. The experience cured me of my microphone phobia, and I’ve been hooked ever since.
How long have you been DJing?
As long as a moonbean can balance on the crest of a wave.
Can we find you DJing anywhere other than on Phonic FM?
Every year I hold the annual Street DJ event at Exeter Central Station. Hundreds of DJs show up with their portable headsets and microphones and broadcast their usual show live from the same location. A wonderful show of community among the Radio DJs of Exeter.
What has been your most embarrassing DJing moment?
When I dressed the microphone up as a vicar, and then it’s trousers fell down. It was a farce.
What has been your best DJing moment?
Once, during a 1 hour radio Quaker Meeting flock buddhist monk phoned in to join in the silence. The quality of the silence that day was the best it’s ever been as a result.
Where do you shop for music in Exeter?
I don’t Why? I find that shops send me into a kind of haze that inhibits most of my brain functionality.
