DJ of the Month
DJ of the Month February 2015: Emily
What brought you to WRUV?
I remember when I came to admitted student’s day my parents and I were passing the station on a tour and my mom said, “Wow, it would be so cool to be aDJ!” I determined she was right so I signed up for DJ Training. I didn’t come into training with a huge music library and endless knowledge about the kind of music I liked, but I knew that I wanted to be surrounded by music in some way and find new music easily and that’s why I love the station.
Tell us about your show– what do you talk about/what kind of music do you play?
Genre? On the schedule it says that I play “folk rock”, which is entirely true, but I usually just end up throwing a playlist together of whatever I feel like at the time. Usually my playlists are a blend of slow, woodsy rhythms accompanied by happy-go-lucky songs that make you dance.
Where did you get your show name?
A place that is very special to me has a large field of daisies, and they’ve been my favorite flower for as long as I can remember. My show name is “Among the Daisies” because I like to imagine that my playlists would be much enjoyed while sitting in a daisy field. Or a field of other assorted flowers.
What do you like to do besides being a DJ?
Besides being a DJ I have found a lovely home in the UVM Outing Club, where I have the opportunity to lead backpacking and hiking trips.
What are your personal “top 5” tracks?
Currently they are…
- All The Pretty Girls- Kaleo
- Winter Trees- The Staves
- Oh La La- Faces
- Gone- The Head and The Heart
- Use Me Up- Lake Street Dive
Listen to “Among the daisies” on Friday 12-2pm.
