In just a few short days, KZSC will bid a “see-you-later” to senior programmer, Marles Barkley aka Marley Lix-Jones. Earning her staff badge during her freshmen year, Marles went on to be Rock Director for one year, followed by Music Director for one year. Marles Barkley had her debut show, Hairdresser Blues with fellow DJ Justin Credible during the Spring of 2012, where “hairstyles rotate[d] weekly.” In the Fall of 2012, Marles began Soulacoaster, which will have it’s final edition this week—just short of three years on KZSC’s program schedule. With her diverse array of musical tastes, Marles has also hosted neo soul show No Love, indie rock show Pop-Rock-Sicle, and post-punk show Rebellious Jukebox. Marles and I caught up on spices, curling, college, and of course, radio.
- If I were a nut butter I would be… peanut butter. I mean, of course she would, it’s the title of Joanna Gruesome’s newest album and Marles is all about Joanna Gruesome.
- My favorite pepper/spicy spice/hot sauce is… I like black bean chili sauce. The oil is good as hot sauce for soups and stuff and the actual sauce is really good in a stir fry type thing. Versatile sauce.
- My favorite summer Olympic sport is… soccer.
- My favorite winter Olympic sport is… I’m not passionate about any winter Olympic sport. What about curling? How do you feel about curling? Waste of time y/n? I think curling is pretty chill. It’s fun-ish to watch and seems fun to play. It is one of those Olympic sports where the people who play it are just regular people with day jobs and they are just mad good at curling, which I think is cool but also kinda sad. I feel like if you are the best in the world at something you should be allowed to just do that for a living.
- Best meal of the day? Of today? All I’ve eaten is coffee and goldfish.
- Are you a sandwich person or more of an anything-wrapped-in-a-tortilla person? Both.
- Most college meal you’ve ever created? Sometimes I eat uncooked ramen.
- CD you would put in a time capsule? A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness by Rocketship.
Marles Barkley can be heard with Brickfrog on Soulacoaster, this Friday from 4-5:30pm, and on The Jangle Book, Tuesday from 2-4pm.
