Spots written, recorded, and produced.

Published on 10th February 2017

Writing for Radio K allows me almost complete creative freedom to explore my ideas with guidance from the Programming Adviser Sarah Lemancyzk.

The station's messaging demands that I write in multiple voices, spanning from Irreverent College Student to Sincere and Underappreciated, often treading a line on Righteous Taste Maker, but always remaining up-to-date on cultural happenings, pop culture phenomena in-music-and-out from any of the last 40 decades.
