How long have you volunteered at KPTZ? I have been coming for the past year and a half. Just a couple of months from when KPTZ first aired.
Why did you decide to volunteer with KPTZ? I was talking with a friend of mine who is on the board of directors and told me they were looking for volunteers to help answer phones.
What do you like most about volunteering here? I like meeting and working with interesting people I would not otherwise meet.
I understand you play a ukulele, so you must be a lover of music. What genres of music do you like best? Classical, especially Choral music, Big Band music from the 40’s and Blue Grass.
Will we ever be able to hear you play your ukulele on air? NO!
Haha, we will try and get her to come in sometime we hope with her ukulele… You can find out more about Germaine and her Ukulele friends at ukulelesunite.com.
