8 December 2018

What’s This Called? is joined by legendary Portland dj Leo Daedalus for a special 4 hour show (including two hours substituting for Turtles Have Short Legs). It is the Freeform Portland Donor Drive and a great time to show support of the program and it’s amazing new home: https://www.freeformportland.org/donate/

We strove to make the show fun to listen to, with a smattering of tracks from Lux Interior’s X-mas mixtape, samples of KRAB in the 1970s and TESC in the 1980s, an 18 minute Can opus, and discussions about fundraising that somehow incorporated Phillip K. Dick’s VALIS novel and Exegesis!
