1) What do you do at WRFR?
I host a show named Grey Owl (named after one of my favorite fiddle tunes) on Mondays at 10pm. The show was originally meant to be an ongoing deep-dive into bluegrass and old-time, but, since starting about a year ago, I have found myself far too inconsistent for such a venture. I now stick to a theme every week and play whatever suits my mood that night. Last week was early 1960s Greenwich Village; this week is a tribute to the songs and influence of John Hartford. Next week is—I have no idea.
2) How long have you been volunteering?
I started my show February 2021.
3) Why did you decide to volunteer/why did you want to have a show?
I was involved in college radio and enjoyed the freedom to play more-or-less whatever I wanted to. I have found WRFR, likewise, accepting of all shows. It is an exceptionally laid back environment.
4) Other than the show you host, what is your favorite show?
Random Rules, hosted by Scott Sell on Mondays at 6pm. There are many others that I regularly tune in for, but I can’t remember their names off the top of my head.
5) Is there a question should have asked you?
“This all sounds wonderful, and I especially like John Hartford! How do I get involved at WRFR?” Email email@example.com
