Jarrod Macartney has a passion for film and television but nowhere near as much as his appetite for music. He listened to plenty of terrible tunes back in the 90s, but has since redeemed himself regularly enjoying indie rock, alternative rock and synthpop music. You can often catch Jarrod being his own personal DJ within the limits of his car.
