Happy Friday! What could be better than a week that celebrates fashion AND radio? Nothing… except maybe an interview with the creator of this very radio show, Sew & Tell. That’s right, today my guest is none other than the stylish, savvy DJ with impeccable taste in both music and clothes, Caroline Sloan. Carrie is better known around the station as DJ Audrey II, the voice and mind behind the masterfully-mixed nocturnal playlist on BreakThru Radio’s Night Show. But, as some of you might remember, DJ Audrey II was also the original visionary and host of Sew & Tell. On today’s show, Carrie will talk about her first interview, some of the challenges and surprising discoveries she found in creating a weekly fashion talk show, and a few of her favorite shops, fall wardrobe finds, and upcoming trends for Spring/Summer 2012. Plus, don’t miss her awesome 80’s Halloween costume reveal!

Also, great music in the mix today from Austra, Class Actress, Moby, Elliott Smith, Jens Lekman and more. So join us for a journey back in time to the start of BTR’s own fashion radio show!
