Today, Saturday, Noon to 1 PM PST What’s This Called? brings you as Special Investigative Experimental Music Program.

Ride the Special Investigative Stream

Portland’s ever exciting MC of the Wanderlust Circus, Mr. Noah Mickens recently revealed that, “Every day, I find another person on Facebook claiming to have worked for Wanderlust Circus, who definitely did not ever work for Wanderlust Circus. Such a strange thing, to me.” Strange indeed.

What’s more, What’s This Called? host Ricardo Wang reports: “Actually, I have a guy who calls my radio show from Spokane claiming to be you, and I usually just roll with it. He seems lonely…”

So, WHAT would happen if amidst a soundtrack of the likes of Nick Cave, Nequaquam Vacuum, ARU, Delphine Dora, Ute Lemper, Power Circus, Alice Coltrane, Soriah, and more, the impostor Noah Mickens were to call KPSU to report the impostor Wanderlust Circus members to What’s This Called? WHAT, indeed?
