Yes, Sex to 9 is 10 years old!
It feels like it was yesterday when I was given the Friday slot on RRN in those days, what would later become TotalRock, and yet so much has happened.
I’m sure that many would not have given a dime for a show with a silly name, presented by a foreigner, not to mention that I was playing all these obscure bands that no one knew in the UK. The truth be told, there were some people in the early days that were not exactly supportive, but, oh well! where are they now? I’m still on air, in fact the longest running show on TotalRock… who would have said? So allow me to pride myself on this little achievement.
I’ve always tried to do things with passion and honesty, never step on other people’s toes, do my own thing and be genuine. I firmly believe that otherwise, it’s not worth doing it.
Far from bitter, I feel blessed and incredibly grateful to many, many, many people.
Of course to my TotalRock family (at least the ones that believed in me), to the labels (the ones that cared and realized it was all about promoting music and not a groupies competition).
To all the bands: thank you for the music, for the interviews, for supporting the show. You’ve got all my respect.
To the listeners: you guys have made the show what it is, plus you invented the concept of "sextoniner", way more than just listeners! I’m forever grateful.
Of course we wouldn’t be on air without Yods. My beautiful husband Micah is the backbone of Sex to 9. Without his faith and support nothing would have been possible. This show is as much his as mine.
Here’s to many more years of great music
See you on the airwaves!
