"All of Tambora radio's programs are presented by volunteer broadcasters, who are music enthusiasts, artists, producers, DJs, and record collectors" he says while rolling a cigarette. "Every broadcaster has a passion for what they present and devoted experts in their fields"
"I have always had a passion for radio because I grew up on a pre-internet era, where radio is one of best sources for music", he explains while organising his equipment in his living room, next to him, was his friend sitting comfortably on a brown vintage sofa smoking his cigarette and listening. So far Tambora Radio has four different shows, including "Live at Como" which focuses on various genres of underground dance music, while "What Da Funk" focuses on 70's funk, and early hip-hop. Bayu graduated with a master's degree in marketing, but his passion remains in music. His show: "Puff Puff Pass", is where he displays his love of obscure music from the past.
"It's like watching a TV series, and once you get the character, you'll be into it. One thing we can assure you is we offer an alternative to alternative music. A side stream of the side stream music", he said with a smile.
Bayu can also be seen spinning his records in Hasti Bala Bar in the Carlton Hotel, in their once a month event: Day Care.
