The DJ of the Month for May 2012, is the one and only DJ Llu! This fair lady has certainly intensified her involvement in the WRUV world as of late, bring in new tunes and cranking out reviews as a Sub Music director. DJ Llu has been grooving through the DJ scene for quite some time now, combining freshly ripe rock tracks with head-boppin' mash-ups since her college days at WIUV Castleton. Her interest in music has come from great lengths since bopping out to boy bands on cassette. She keeps listeners on their toes by taking them on an eclectically mystical voyage, spinning anything from rock to hip-hop-- she can't stop and won't stop having her listeners expect the unexpected. Aside from living and breathing music, Llu enjoys winding down with some good eats and her cat on her lap. Catch this garden-loving, proactive DJ's show "DJ Llu Presents" on Wednesdays, from 12-2 p.m. and don't forget to lace-up those dancing shoes!
What brought you to WRUV?
My biggest rule as a DJ is to never let the listen anticipate your next track!
My current show is called "DJ Llu presents...," which eludes to the different vibe you get from week to week. Starting this summer, I am going to switch gears to an entirely new music show called, "Get Fresh." As a new sub-rock music director, I am getting deep into the new stuff and want to make sure WRUV listeners have a chance to get a weekly taste of all the freshest tracks.
Ha, I do a fair amount beyond DJing on the radio or in local clubs. I recently worked for four years in UVM's Student Life office directing the leadership & civic engagement student clubs and programs. Before that, I was the Director of the non-profit Outright Vermont, which is the state's only queer youth org. Most recently, I ran a political mayoral campaign here in Burlington for Tim Ashe and have started producing a monthly dance party called "Pop-Up! A Queer Dance Party." I am fierce life-long Vermonter and constant community activist on a range of issues. I love gardening, eating good food, and shopping online. And at the end of the day, I come home to my loving partner of eight years and my cranky cat, Twyla Sharp.
