DJ of the Month June 2014: Aly Perry

fu8htuThe DJ of the month is Aly Perry!! Here’s an interview with her!

What brought you to WRUV?

Living without internet for this 1st year in Burlington, the radio acted as a real life line to the outside world.
I loved how eclectic the programming is at WRUV…It was surprising! It was weird! It was wonderful!

A station crush developed. I was hungry for new music, and was never disappointed.

Several programs became my new darlings, and I would look forward to them each day and evening.
— It was love, pure radio love. And I’m thrilled (!) to be in the room now. What a joy.
Tell us about your show– what do you talk about/what kind of music do you play?

I am in the booth Saturdays 3-6 pm this Summer. I aim to craft those three hours in a few segments.
The first hour’s feeling is like lemonade on your porch – some folk-rock, some joyous music, maybe a blue little ballad to watch the clouds pass. That kind of thing.
The middle hour stretches out in time: a lot of orchestrations, hollowed out music…Dream-scapes is how I like to think of it…
The third hour, 5-6 pm, is the “hot pan” section…Maybe you’re heading home in your car, maybe it’s cocktail hour, maybe you’ve started up cooking, or getting ready to go out. So a soundtrack that keeps your toes moving, and hopefully your mouth grinning, too.

Where did you get your show name?

Forever Is Just A Day is a song off the new Hurray For The Riff Raff album (Small Town Heroes.)
It sounds like it is sung deep in an abandoned chamber hall, with the paint hanging off the walls.
The violin strings are following you around and a woman is singing in the rafters — and it’s this cowboy-traveling-moonlit-ballad.

…It’s a song to fall in love to, or, if someone sang you a song with that quality, you might immediately & accidentally, trip into total enthrallment.

Like that. You know? That’s a beautiful feeling.

What do you like to do besides being a DJ?

During the growing season, I work at Tamarack Hollow Farm here in Burlington where we rock ‘RUV at the wash station.
And during the school year, I have the great honor to be the Drama Director at Essex Middle School!

Thanks Aly!!
