Ruby Music Contributors - Lia


Lia is our final contributor to the RUBY store playlists for this season. While studying Fine Arts at the University of Auckland, Lia walked into the 95bFM offices and found her musical outlet - sharing tunes with anyone who would listen. She's spent the past four years interviewing artists, producing and hosting shows on the radio station and is now behind the wheel of the Monday afternoon Drive show. Each week she can be heard orchestrating an eclectic blend of tunes, chats and features.

During the day Lia is usually found buried in books, but at night has a fitting soundtrack to accompany her while she's immersed in darkness working on her photography practice or djing at bars, events and house parties around the city.

Playlist #1 - Booty - Loot, swag, treasure, a person's buttocks.

Playlist #2 - Pop - Explode, burst, go off, popular music.

*Have you ever grooved in front of the mirror pretending to be your favourite star? Have you ever danced so hard you sweated until your clothes came off? With somebody who loves you? This compliation brings together popular music throughout the ages that is both explosive and heartfelt. Enjoy and lip synch along, c'mon you know you want to.

Ruby Music Contributors - Hannah Sarney


The third RUBY store music contributor is Hannah Sarney. Hannah has spent the past six years hosting and producing shows on Auckland radio station 95bFM and is currently settled into the Saturday night request show. Throughout the years she's always tried to slip in enough swoon tunes to make the whole city weak at their knees. She's also taken this endeavour outside of the studio by moonlighting as a press-play-in-tunes DJ at a few of her favourite bars (and weddings) around Auckland.

In her 'real job' she is a producer for one of New Zealand's leading news websites. She's in charge of sorting through and editing down the daily death, destruction and intolerance that amounts to 'world news'. It also involves countless hours spent swivelling in an office chair with headphones glued to her ears. It is music that helps to remind her that the world still has some goodness in it - or at least some hopeful/hopeless romance.

Playlist #1 - Swoon 1 - Heart-ache, heart-break and heart-shakes.

Have you ever caught sight of someone and felt your stomach flutter? Have they made yoru chest pound, your cheeks turn pink, or your knees feel weak? Have you caught yourself drifting off in a warm haze of thoughts about the two of you together? Have you ever desperately wanted to pull them aside and gush about how much you adore them? Has that resulted in you onlybeing able to muster a sheepish smile? Have you ever fallen in love?

This is a two-part collection of songs that capture those joyous/crushed feelings in your heart and say everything you've never quite had the courage to say yourself.
