Brief description of how you came to MR: I saw the staff openings and since it was impossible to get through to the boss I had to consort to Luxi, haha!
Best thing about being with MR: Engaging in more than just listening and being a “fan”. Getting my hands of loads of CD’s, help promote bands and have my say on things.
Worst thing about being with MR: Nothing as of yet. A great start for a long-lasting relationship!
How/when you first got into metal: I saw Nightwish’s “Nemo”-video at a mainstream Danish music programme. After that I started looking more at the band and discovered a whole world of fantastic music!
