20 December 2014: Kait Moon Live

Ricardo Wang’s old friend and former KAOS dj from the Olympia, Washington days is in town from Milwaukee WI. I’m thrilled to bring Kait Moon (AKA DJ Glas) on What’s This Called? today in the Kpsu Portland studio as a guest writer. Kait came to PDX a few days ago to read at the Wayward Writers Group open mic and to pick up printed copies of her brand new book The LunaSea Scout Guide for Breastfeeding Families! Kait is going to read some on the air, share music and stories. Not to be missed!
