DJ of the Month: Karla!
Our Station Manager is kicking April's butt!

What brought you to WRUV?
          
My love of making mix CDs for my friends brought me to WRUV. I wanted to make mix CDs for the world, but that was gonna be too expensive and distribution seemed impossible, so here I am, a DJ at Burlington's better alternative.

Tell us about your show-- what do you talk about/what kind of music do you
play?
My show is just a mix of whatever I am into that week. I try to stick to similar genres that I like (post-punk, lofi bedroom rock, pop-rock, girls making music, Canadians killin' it) but sometimes I stray away if I'm really digging something. My co-workers call the type of music I like "Karla-core" (pretty different genres but all still sound similar). I get really flustered when I talk *still* so I try to avoid too many long dialogues.

Where did you get your show name?
 
My show name just goes along with my DJ name - Aquamarina. I shared a show with my friend, Sadie, last year and she just randomly came up with Aquamarina, so I went with it and kept it after she graduated. Last semester, my show was "In The Fishtank" and this semester it's "At the Aquarium", but I decided I didn't like that a few weeks in so I still call it "In The Fishtank" even though it says something different on the schedule.

What do you like to do besides being a DJ?
When I am not DJing, I am eating cheese or something filled with sugar and likely getting a stomach ache from it. I also
watch an embarrassing amount of Netflix (more like, I spend an embarrassing amount of time sleeping through anything I
try to watch on Netflix). My current hobby is trying to learn french via an app on my cell phone.

Tell us about your show-- what do you talk about/what kind of music do you
play?
Undercover Lover is all about cover songs, with a heavy focus on instrumental and experimental covers. I love it when artists take a song, find the bones of it and rip them right out through the song's nostrils and make a soup full of strange and complex loveliness. A lot of my favorite covers are ones where artists find the dark heart of bubbly pop songs. Ben Howard, for example, turned "Call Me Maybe" all the way inside out, and his version has elements of terror and gender confusion. The Talking Heads had a minor hit with "Stay Up Late", but if you listen to the Diamond Hymen version, you finally realize how creepy and abusive the lyrics are. By the same token, some artists take a relatively straightforward song like Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love" and infuse it with a wild and hidden joy. Magic Drum Orchestra, I'm looking at you!
I like the transformative process of cover songs, is what. I'm waiting for someone to record a cover of "Like a Virgin" by pushing a file cabinet down three flights of stairs. That would be super interesting.

Where did you get your show name? 
I panicked because the show request forms were due in an hour.
 
What do you like to do besides being a DJ?
I read entirely too much for anyone's good. I also collect small dogs and bikes that don't run.
