Perth’s early morning voice for alternative music, Taylah Strano took over the reins on RTRFM’s breakfast show just under a year ago after a slew of radio gigs around Western Australia. A self-proclaimed ‘music nerd’, Ms Strano is a champion for local music of all styles, and a go-too source for the freshest sounds coming out of Perth and beyond.
Grandma’s telephone table
My dad’s mum was a little old Italian lady and I’m convinced she never updated her furniture from the day she arrived in Australia. I’m thankful our aesthetic tastes line up so well and I have this great table to remind me of her.
A phone selfie is about as good as I get at playing photographer, but my old-school Polaroid camera makes me feel legit.

I picked this bowl up during a trip to Europe. My mum, grandmother and I were left to our own devices in Spain and this bowl was the result.
My source of both joy and pain. On one hand it allows me to tune into RTRFM, on the other it wakes me up at 4am to go to RTRFM for my work day.
Believe it or not, this pair of shiny Dr. Martens is a decade old. I received them as a 14th birthday gift and it’s likely you will see me wearing them to most live music gigs I attend.
