After 13 years deep underground we were baptized by the bright sunlight of an unseasonably warm October afternoon for our first What’s This Called? outing at our new time and station, FreeForm Portland! The show sounds a little bit like new fingers reaching for new equipment. The 2nd hour is certainly smoother than the first but this is live radio, not a perfectly overdubbed podcast, and we hope every hour to come is subsequently that much smoother still!
