About Randi

Email: randi@989wclz.com

Why radio?
Where else can you spend your workday with people who are as passionate about music as you are? Plus I have the perfect face for radio.

Why CLZ?
It’s great to be on a station that plays the same music I listen to on my Ipod....Lyle Lovett, Bruce Cockburn, John Gorka......I can finally play different music.....different is good!

What would people be most surprised to learn about you?
That I once spent a year living in a cabin in West Virginia with only a wood stove for heat and no electricity or water. We melted snow over the fire for water in the winter.

What was your first concert?
Okay....I’m really dating myself here.....it was Captain Beefheart in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Captain Beefheart? Yep. Google him.

Music people would be surprised you love?
Broadway musicals- give me Phantom or Rent and I am in heaven!

Best advice you have ever gotten?
Always wear comfortable shoes.

What is your favorite place in Maine?
What is not a favorite? We’ve got it all; the ocean, lakes, mountains, quaint towns.......we are SOOOOO lucky to live in Maine. Of course, I am partial to my camp in the Belgrade Lakes area.

What is your secret talent?
I can see from the back of my head (at least that is what my kids believe).

What is the worst job you have ever had?
I’ve never had any job other than radio, and the worst day in radio is better than the best day in a “real” job.

Most embarrassing moment?
Getting locked out of the radio station while doing laundry during my show. Listeners called the police when they heard the dead air thinking something bad had happened to me.
