Val the Cookie Queen
Hey APJ Perfumistas, Music Fans, and Cookie Monsters
I am gonna be interviewed live, on a local radio station on the 15th of March. Talking about perfumes, punk, and cookies. I am so freaking excited I asked Portia if I could share the news with you. I mean, what is the definition of local radio in 2019 huh? You can all listen to it online anywhere in the world.
Perfume, Punk, and Cookies.
So yeah. Two hours of some of my life changing tunes from back-in-the-day, mixed in with, who knows what? I am being interviewed by Kristina, who does two shows a month on the station. A couple of weeks ago she contacted me and asked if I was interested in doing it. I mean, does a bear crap in the woods? She is working on her masters degree in digital media, in Vienna, and comes back here to do the shows. We met up for coffee last week.
Twenty years ago, when I was just starting out with my business, I went into the local schools selling muffins in their break times. Turns out that Kristina used to run down the stairs as fast as possible to make sure she got a blueberry one from me. Made me laugh. She is so into music that it made me feel like I was talking with my 25-year-old self. She has been doing her show for seven years, and I asked her how she got into doing radio:
“To be honest, the whole radio thing was the result of me sneaking out of class during school. I remember standing in the corridor, when I saw a couple of people walk into a class room. I am always very nosey, and so I sneaked into the room and asked the what they were up to. Apparently one of the catechists wanted to start a radio show by the students, for students. I was a year below them and I never attended any religious classes, hence the reason I was not officially invited to the meeting. Still, I managed to get in on it, and after the second live show the lovely people from Freies Radio Salzkammergut asked me and a friend if we were interested in having our own show. Standing behind the microphone felt like the most natural thing to me and since I am always listening to music, coming up with play lists for the show is pretty easy.”
We will be doing the show live, in English. March 15th. 18:00 – 20:00. Central European Time. FREIES RADIO SALZKAMMERGUT
Favourite reggae albums.
I nearly popped a blood vessel choosing around 15 tracks for my playlist. I am nearly there; but not quite decided which reggae tracks I wanna have. Hmmmm.
I’m gonna take Luten’s Tubereuse Criminelle, Vero`s Roxy Extrait, and Hiram Green’s Hyde. Hoping we cam sniff all three on air.
What perfumes would you take?
Video did not kill the radio star. Hope some of you might be able to tune in.
