What is your name and DJ name?
My name is Caitlin, and my DJ name is Caitlin.
What is the name of your show and when is it on?
It’s Mustard Palace, and it’s 12 to 1 on Tuesdays.
Please describe your show. What is its format?
It’s just what I imagine the soundtrack would be in this big beautiful yellow palace.
What drew you to participate in KMRD?
My friend Colleen told me about it during Covid, which was nice. And then my brother Arpi went with me to DJ training. Colleen was already at the station, and she got my brother and me involved, which I was very appreciative of.
What is the appeal of doing a radio show? How does it fit into the rest of your life?
It’s a really great creative outlet, and a fun way to work with music.
What difference has being a DJ made in your life?
It’s the most fun way to be a volunteer, because it doesn’t even really feel like volunteering. It’s nice being involved with a community, especially outside of Santa Fe a little bit. Even though I don’t really know a lot of people who are DJs, but I can listen to them and become a fan. I just love being around people who have really serious relationships with music.
What are your hopes for your show?
Just to keep going, to be able to continue to do it. I’m trying to work on a book soundtrack thing, maybe working with authors, exploring the relationship between music and writing.
What are your hopes for the station?
I hope that it keeps thriving; I’m excited about the new location. And that more and more people become familiar with it.
