My name is Llu, aka DJ Llu and I have been on Vermont radio for nearly 25 years (but I could still pass for looking like a 12-year old). Over the years I have worked in a variety of radio formats – commercial (99.9 the Buzz for a dozen years), college (WIUV, Castleton is my college soul mate), community radio (WGDR, Plainfield gave me my start at 13 years old). I have also DJed a variety of live gigs (r.i.p. 135 Pearl, oh, hey! Higher Ground), and hosted couple of podcasts like this one.
My current audio projects are:
All do all that for the love of the game, but my day job is as Development & Outreach Manager for VCAM – one of the three community media centers in Burlington. Which means I raise money and get paid to be on social media and the internet all day! I am also the point staff person for WBTV-LP, helping to keep the momentum going behind the scenes.
Fun fact: I am a sucker for a well designed iphone game. My current favorites are “dragon jump” and “alto’s adventures.” All time besties are “badlands” and “limbo.”
A thing I hope happens with this radio station:
Nearly four years ago, long before I was on the VCAM staff, I was one of the folks who was part of starting this station’s dream and went after the FCC license. Back then and today, my dream/hope is exactly the same – I want this to be a COMMUNITY station. Led by locals, with quality programming that is eclectic and interesting, and for the station to be an asset as part of the local media landscape.
Current tunes, radio shows, and podcasts I like:
