Director - Suzanne Mackinder email
Director/Communications Director (2017/19, 2016/17)

In her youth Suzanne loved to dance the night away, preferably in some obscure club with a tiny dance floor and a big sound system. She's a long-term member of Peach City Radio and has volunteered at PCR's Vinyl Fest every year. Suzanne produces a program called EDM, which is a one-hour show of electronic dance music, and is a member of both the Music Committee and the Vinyl Fest Committee. These days she limits her dancing to her living room whenever she can wrestle control of the stereo away from her spouse.
