What brought you to WRUV?
I listened to Corey (The Buckdancer’s Choice) every Friday morning for years. After hearing that there was DJ training coming up, I called him to ask what the process was. He totally encouraged me and got me pumped to take it on. 3.5 years later, here I am!
Tell us about your show–what do you talk about/what kind of music do you play?
I am a true music lover. My show runs up and down the spectrum. I’ve noticed that I tend to play more bluegrass and folk in the spring time and more hard rock, soft metal in the fall. I am always playing jam bands. I try to play a snippet of a live show each week. Moe. gets a ton of air time, with Phish coming in a close second. From Zac Brown Band to Tool, you never know what you’re going to get into on Mouthful of Cavities. I try to keep people in the know about music happenings around the state and beyond. Usually I will get my new stories from liveforlivemusic.com
. If I can’t find anything interesting there, I just try to find the oddest news story available.
Where did you get your show name?
I struggled with my show name for a few weeks. I really wanted to have it be a Phish reference, but kept coming up short. Finally one day I said, ‘how bout any band or song’ and came up with one of my favorite Blind Melon tunes. Mouthful of cavities was born. Side note: I’ve often thought about changing the name to Sensory Deprivation Tank, a fantastic moe. song. But I doubt I could say that multiple times at 6 am.
What do you like to do besides being a DJ?
If you haven’t noticed, I’m really into music. I like to attend festivals during summer and just about anything I can afford. (I don’t want to know how much money I’ve given Higher Ground over the years;)
I also love to go camping. My partner and I try to find a new place every summer as well as visiting our favorite spot in the northeast kingdom. When I can’t get away to camping land, but need my outdoor de-stress fix, I head to our garden. I am an avid cook and prefer to work with my own veggies.
