DJ Of the Month: Ruby Tuesday!
February 2014

 

We caught up with Ruby Tuesday, who has been helping out lots around the Station especially in our Jazz department - tune into her show every Thursday evening from 10 to midnight! 

What brought you to WRUV?

In high school, I had a radio show for almost three years on Goddard College's WGDR, and so when I came to UVM it seemed like an interesting idea to pick it up again. Also, my mom had a great soundscape show called "Two Heads are Better Than Four Legs" on WRUV in the 80s when the station was just up and running, and so I also loved the idea of carrying on the legacy. 
          
Tell us about your show-- what do you talk about/what kind of music do you
play?

My main focus is jazz, and although I call it "straight jazz classics and funk/soul infusions", I really end up playing a pretty wide range. On my WGDR show I was playing a lot of indie rock, and so when I came here I really wanted to switch it up and start exploring another genre. Jazz has been a tried-and-true favorite for as long as I can remember (Ella Fitzgerald was my first CD), and so it seemed like the perfect way to go. I am most interested in old-school ladies like Ella, and if I had enough material I would probably play mostly classics like her, but being my limited collection is forcing me to branch out and try new things, which has been a fun adventure.

Where did you get your show name?

"It's Only a Paper Moon" is the name of a song written in the early thirties, which was recorded most memorably by artists like Ella Fitzgerald and Nat King Cole during the second world war. I try to play it as the last song of my show every night, so you can hear it if you happen to be tuning in around 11:55 on a Thursday night.
 
What do you like to do besides being a DJ?

I love cooking, and watching movies, and going out to see/hear music. Right now I'm just waiting for spring, but soon I'll be able to start exploring all the waterholes of Vermont again, too.

What's your favorite snack food?
Toast with butter and nutritional yeast. Yum.

DJ Of the Month: Caroline!
January 2014

 

Catch Caroline on our airwaves this Spring on Mondays from Noon to 2pm on A Teenager's Love Score.
What brought you to WRUV?

This past summer (the summer after our freshman year at UVM) a close friend and I decided to spend the summer in Burlington and sublet-ed a dingy, hole-in-the wall type apartment right near campus. One day while wandering around, I came across a poster advertising that DJ training was coming up for WRUV and I fell in love with the idea. I have some really cool friends that were/are fervently involved in college radio and I really wanted to be a part of that. The whole college radio culture and everything it stands for seemed perfect for me.
          
Tell us about your show -- what do you talk about/what kind of music do you
play?

I started listening to a lot of great music in high school, mostly inspired by small-town ennui and teenage angst. I guess I wanted my show to be a tribute to that, especially because I think it's something that a lot of people can relate to. I play a lot of new music but I also play a generous amount of old favorites. Occasionally I'll feature jazz covers of popular songs or relaxed Latin guitar music. I also think I might want to start reading amateur poetry on my show, that would be really cool. 

Where did you get your show name?

One of my favorite songs all through high school was "A Teenager in Love" by The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. I'm also really interested in the limbo-like experience of teenager-dom and what it means to be in love with someone when you're that age. There's something really uniquely romantic about it, I think. 
 
What do you like to do besides being a DJ?

I like cooking vegan food, drawing on my hands, and taking naps.
