|For other characters named Julie, see Julie.|
Julie is the unseen DJ of Appalachia Radio.
Born in 2079 or 2080, Julie grew up in the wasteland with her parents and her brother Matt. When she was a kid, she used to listen to Appalachia Radio alone or with her parents, enjoying musicians like Billie Holiday and songs like Crazy He Calls Me. The music from the radio helped her during the difficult years ahead, in which she lost friends and family. It kept her going on, and reminded her of the good times.
By 2103, Julie heard about people returning to Appalachia, and immediately decided to join them in order to find Appalachia Radio to make sure it would still run for years to come. Leaving her family behind, a 23 year old Julie finally arrived at West Virginia, and not long after she managed to find the radio station. Seeing the state in which the devices were - which were about to break down and play Anything Goes in a loop - Julie made use of the tools she had and repaired them. Afterwards, she decided to become the radio's new DJ, not because the station was now in her possession, but because she hoped the people hearing its music, and she taking care of radio would be enough to give people hope, to make them smile, and to make them think about the ones they care.
In between the songs, Julie speaks about her own life and family, and plays music that reminds her of her parents, mentioning them beforehand. She also says during the introduction to Mr. Sandman that she would pursue a romantic interest, were it not for the radiation and wildlife that are constantly creating issues in the wasteland.
Julie is also in ownership of a Scavenger Collectron, although she considers it to not have respect for personal boundaries. Despite its difficulties, she is learning to play the tuba. Julie also wishes she knew how to play a steel guitar.

- Julie: "Hey friends, Julie here. I-I wanted to take a second to talk about something important to me: this radio station. I try not to talk about myself too much, but maybe you've heard me mention it before: I'm only 23, but I've had more than my share of bad times. I-I don't say that to get you to feel sorry for me. I know that so many of you out there have had difficult lives too. Some far, far harder than mine. I say it because I want you to know I can relate. I know what it's like to lose family and friends. To struggle. But there's one thing that always kept me going, always meant something to me. It's this place. This radio station. This music. These songs playing out across the world for everyone to hear...they mean so much to me. They remind me of good times, of people I care about. Things that really matter. They offer...hope. I know it's cheesy, but hey it's true!"
- Julie: "Oh, ok my brother Matty as a kid, oh boy, did he laugh at Fats Waller blurting out, "Believe me"! [laughs] Oh Matty, uh, wherever you are I hope you can hear this and I hope you're still laughing."
- Julie: "This next song was one of my mom's favorites. She'd get so excited every time it came on the radio, without fail. Here's "Opus Number One" by Tommy Dorsey."
- Julie: "Dad always used to ask if I had ants in my pants when I couldn't sit still. I guess maybe Chick Webb's dad did the same thing, since here he is singing about it."
- Julie: "Doesn't Billie Holiday just have the most beautiful voice? Every time I've heard that song, since I was a little girl, just been carried away by it."
- Julie: "I'm not saying you all owe me, but when I got here the equipment was days away from breaking down. You were all saved from hearing this song, and only this song, repeating endlessly forever."
- Julie: "When I heard that people were coming back to Appalachia, I knew I had to make the trip. To find this radio station and make sure it stays running. I'm not gonna act like it's mine, like, I own it or anything. I've fixed some times up, sure, but I didn't build Appalachia Radio. It doesn't belong to me. But I want to make sure it stays on the air because...maybe it can give someone else hope. Maybe...Maybe that someone is you. So, I hope you hear this music, and it makes you smile, or makes you think of someone you care about. That's what it's here for. That's what I'm here for."
- Julie: "Here at Appalachia Radio, I've recently gotten my hands on a Collectron. He is absolutely adorable, but has zero respect for personal boundaries."
Collectron: "Can I interest you in a block of concrete?"
Julie: "Oh my gosh, get OUT of here you big goofball!"
- Julie: "...I really wish I knew how to play steel guitar. I'm working on the tuba, but that's... well, let's just say it's coming along, but very slowly. And loudly."
