Rachel Galvin started her work as a host back in college while attending the University of Colorado, Boulder. She had a prime time spot on Fridays 4-6 p.m. at KUCB. She played 80s and alternative and dubbed it the Sister Rachel show. She also was involved in the KUCB Magazine as a writer and editor.
After college, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting and also had a chance to be a host on the cult classic the Junior Christian Science Show.
In 2000, she made her way to South Florida where she was host for the local TV station for Coral Springs as an on-air guest reporter. She also did some hosting for BocaRaton.com interviewing celebrities on the red carpet and becoming a spokesperson for a few marketing spots.
Then, she found her way to ObserverTV, a local on-line TV station created in correlation with the local newspaper, “The Observer,” which has an over 50 year history. Here, she did over 100 videos interviewing local dignitaries and even a Congressman, hosting at multiple parades and local events and even going on location to Los Angeles to host the 81st Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade.
In the meantime, she created her own Independent Streak TV to capture local film events and interview filmmakers. That project led her back full circle into radio.
She discovered BlogTalkRadio, an opportunity online to get her voice back on the air waves. First, she created a show about fashion called Let’s Talk Fashion (and created a blog concerning fashion–www.letstalkfashion.blogspot.com). While that blog is still active, she put the radio show on hold to focus more on voicing her experience in the acting world to correspond with a new book she penned in 2009 called “Basics of the Biz.” She created a show by the same name in which she talked about various topics about the acting industry and her own experiences. Once she felt she had covered many of the main topics in her book, she went on to create the project she really wanted to tackle — interviewing filmmakers on the radio.
Her Indie Streak radio show (www.blogtalkradio.com/indiestreak) was born. The show immediately gained fans when she created it in January 2012. In September of that year, it won Web Radio Show of the Year by Women in the Arts. Today, the show is going strong as she interviews guests from around the world every Sunday at 1 p.m. EST. Tune in!
