We have some amazing volunteers working with us here at Life FM. Some of them you’ll know from on-air, others work behind the scenes. Here’s a short run-down on the people you’re most likely to hear, see, or talk to on the phones during the work week. Make sure you say hi if you see them in town!
Daz is studying Media & Journalism, and is currently the Takeover’s longest running member, having joined since early 2018!
If you’ve heard Daz before, you probably know that he’s a big fan of KFC (especially the Original Tenders Box), and often shares all about his kentucky fried experiences on air!
When Daz isn’t on air talking about KFC or what’s trending on YouTube, he’s either binge-watching Survivor or live-streaming his own gaming content on Twitch!
Follow Daz on:
Oli studied Marketing at the University of South Australia and has been a long standing metal head since hearing the soothing tunes of Linkin Park on Toonami many years ago……
When not on air with Maz and the Team or hosting Amped on Monday nights, Oli preoccupies himself with movies and popular culture. Other times, he’s painting or sitting back and listening to an album…… over a glass of milk of course.
“I drink milk and I know things”
