DJ IDK // Amanda

What is your name and DJ name?

My name is Amanda, and I am DJ IDK.

What is the name of your show and when is it on?

My show is The People’s Harvest, and it is on Wednesdays from 2 to 4pm.

Please describe your show. What is its format?

Well, we’ve got lots of music, focused on bluegrass, western, folk, and Americana, and talk segments focused on food, farm, and future.

What drew you to participate in KMRD?

I was really bored during Covid lockdown!

What is the appeal of doing a radio show? How does it fit into the rest of your life?

I love it. I get to be part of a community, I get to meet lots of other cool DJs… I love the power of the airwaves. 

I’m kind of on my little journey of growing things and starting a farm and homesteading, so it’s fun to get to share all the updates with everyone, like tips and tricks we learn along the way.

What difference has being a DJ made in your life?

I definitely feel way more connected with the community down in Madrid. I definitely have a lot more appreciation for music, like I’ve explored music and new artists and things a lot more than I ever did before.

What are your hopes for your show?

I hope it’ll continue, I hope people enjoy it, I hope people learn something from it.

What are your hopes for the station?

I hope that we are the greatest radio station in the world one day! Of course.

I hope the station keeps on keeping on, I hope we stay freeform, noncommercial. I would love to experience the KMRD of social interaction. I’ve heard, in the past, we had guests? And more than two people? And we could touch things, without sanitizing everything every fifteen minutes? So, I look forward to that!
