How did you first hear about or get involved with KVRX?

I'm really not sure how I heard about KVRX, I just enjoyed music and knew it existed. I had always wanted to be in KVRX but was too scared, so I didn't join until my junior year. One of my residents (when I was an RA) talked to me about his freeform show, and that conversation just convinced me to try it out (after I quit being an RA).


What shows have you had on KVRX?

What is your favorite KVRX memory?

I wish I had more KVRX memories but the pandemic yonked us. Anyway, I really enjoyed the times I volunteered with Local Live. Lydia taught us all about audio, we got to hear bands live, and I enjoyed witnessing and being a part of a functioning team. Also, I liked DJ training a lot because my DJ trainer Maddy provided such a warm welcome.

Tell us about your final playlist!

This playlist is a hodge podge of nostalgia and maybe liminal moments and also my time in college. Some of the songs are more confident, some are just sad, some are love songs, and some are reassuring.

As much as I wanted to graduate, now that the time has come, I am sad, and I will miss everyone I knew and everyone I wanted to know more.
