Julie James: Musically, Vocally, Personally

Julie James: Musically, Vocally, Personally

Julie James from 98.1 CHFI in Toronto talks about music, personality, her career and the joy of radio.


In this episode Julie and I talk about working from home, having to adjust while doing multiple radio tasks including imaging, music programming, music meetings, and building a home office. It's the little things like an extra monitor or a chair to endure prolonged periods of work. I also asked Julie about the AC format and how it has evolved over the last few years, some of the tools she uses to help make music decisions, what it all takes to keep great radio stations sounding awesome, and what she learned from Valerie Geller. We also talked about her time in Edmonton and London, Ontario programming and her eventual move back to Toronto where she has worked with Rogers since 2009.

Julie also shared one of her Spotify Playlists which she curates to listen to some new music. Now you too can listen like Julie.
