Saturdays, 10am – 3pm

What was your last non-radio job?
Radio is my fun job. My bill-paying job is Digital Marketing for a travel company. Most people think I am a travel agent, so I get asked for a lot of vacation advice…I don’t mind, though.

How do you spend your time outside of the station?
The best way to answer this question is to friend me on Facebook or visit my blog. There, you can witness my chronicles of working; riding the T; racking up some serious frequent flyer miles; and being one half of a “low power media couple” (my other half is a TV director for NBC).

What’s your favorite Boston band, past or present?
Tough call. Boston is a great music town. Peter Wolf, Chris Trapper, Chad Hollister, The Shills, and my cousin, Kevin, is a kick-ass guitar player.

What was your first concert?
A-ha at the Orpheum in October, 1986. I was 13.

What was the first album you ever bought?
Sesame Street Fever; it was the Muppets’ take on Saturday Night Fever.

What are some of your favorite movies?
Lost In Translation, Get Him to the Greek, 2 Days in New York, anything from the Matt Farley/Motern Media collection

What are some of your favorite TV shows, past or present?
Archer, 30 Rock, The Inbetweeners (both British and American), and pretty much anything on PBS or BBC

If you had a goofy DJ name what would it be?
Emma Peel (more aspirational than goofy)

What is your favorite YouTube clip?
Jack White – Serious Jibber Jabber with Conan O’Brien

What is your favorite time-wasting website?
TheOnion.com
