Ryan Forbes – Portfolio – Jan. 2017

Making my “triumphant” return to the Hosting business with Riot Radio after a 3-year hiatus.  I quickly realized that being in a crawl space for hours on end isn’t exactly my dream job. I’m here to listen to myself talk, and to turn bringing up indie music that no one has ever heard of into a career, to make a few bucks, and to blow it all on tattoos. If you see a vaguely-hipster looking kid with a band shirt on, who just happens to be at a gluten free establishment? Odds are you’ve got the right guy.

Episodes of my self-produced radio show on Durham College’s Riot Radio station, Uncharted Up North is a look at new and underground Canadian artists that helped to give them exposure to new listeners, and their 15 minutes of fame.
