Sarah McLeod said, “I’m excited about co-hosting on the Radar Rock show because I get to discover cool new bands that I wouldn't normally hear. Every week I sit and listen to hours of music that’s NOT MINE. It’s a nice change, and its inspiring too! Reegan (McLaughlin) and I have been having fun and it’s great that this show allows a diverse range of music to be heard on such a massive platform as Triple M”.
