Presenter - Josef Murwood
Background: Josef was born in Kew, Victoria, but eventually moved to Yenda with his family at a young age. Growing up in Yenda, Josef took a keen interest in computer gaming, and in such titles as Lost Vikings, Doom, Diablo and Half-Life. In 2010 he began volunteering at 2MIA FM, helping with the technical aspects of radio broadcasting, and in 2012 he became the Technical Director. It is through his work at the station that Josef has gained an impressive skill set in computing and electronics. To further his interests, Josef completed a Tertiary Preparation Certificate at TAFE, which gave him the opportunity to learn the mathematics essential for working with electronics. From maintaining equipment to new installations, Josef has quickly become the backbone of the radio stations broadcasting capability. In the future, Josef would like to pursue a Bachelor of Electronic Engineering.
Music Interests: Early in high school, Josef became interested in Trance and Techno music, but over the years he has broadened his horizons into Punk, Grunge, Nerdcore, Rock, Hiphop, Dubstep and Game Soundtrack music. "For me, I like music in the background when I'm doing tasks, or for relaxing with a down tempo". Artists such as Massive Attack, Gorillaz, Beck and K.Flay top Josef's list of favourites. "In the music I listen to, I often value the singers voice more than the actual music". "I like to play music that sometimes has a message, especially songs that talk about social, cultural or gender issues".
Programs: Josef is developing new programming for 2018.
