|TM||How long have you been a Curtin radio FM 100.1 volunteer?|
|LN||Just under five years|
|TM||Why do you do it?|
|LN||I love radio and the power of the medium. It’s personal and intimate. I’m a relatively shy person and on-air I can be exuberant and outgoing. I was brought up on radio. You can connect with people that in a way that you just can’t face-to-face. It’s all part of the Curtin family.|
|TM||Where you in radio before Curtin FM 100.1?|
|LN||I was first on radio when I was 12. I would phone up a talent show every week and sing on the radio. Then at 13 I was a runner at the local radio station. I ran the soccer scores from the newsroom down to the studio stop and then one week they even let me read out the soccer scores on-air. Later there was a community station that ran for three weeks and I was the breakfast announcer .|
|TM||What would you say to someone thinking about volunteering at Curtin radio?|
|LN||Do it! The Curtin volunteers are a diverse and happy bunch. A very hard-working bunch. Come and see how the magic goes to air and be part of the ever-growing family.|
|TM||What you do when you’re not on air Curtin FM 100.1?|
|LN||I am a primary school teacher. Years 5 to 6. Over 20 years, I still like seeing the lightbulb moment. When you’ve been battling to help them to understand something and they’re acting up because they’re struggling to understand. And when they thank you.|
|TM||What would you say to anyone listening into Curtin FM?|
|LN||Let the music take you on a happy journey.|
|TM||Any last words?|
|LN||Be nice to each other and when you look in the mirror be nice to yourself.|
