26 November 2016 (Goodbye Pauline Oliveros)

Damnit 2016, stop already! We weren’t planning on doing a special memorial show on What’s This Called? this week, but how can we fail to note the passing of one of the great experimental musicians of our era? So we’ll expand the show this week and start at 11 AM Pacific Time on KPSU.org and run all the way to 1 PM with an hour of music by the great Pauline Oliveros followed by the mix intended before the sad news.

About Ricardo Wang

I began doing Public/Community/College radio at KUGS FM in Bellingham, WA in 1985 and was there until 1987. I spent 10 years at KAOS FM in Olympia, WA from 1993-2003 including a one year stint as Music Director. During that entire time, I did the What's This Called? program, at times for as long as 6 hours in a single night! The show ran at KPSU in Portland, from 2005 to 2018. I've been happily at Freeform Portland since October of 2018 and loving every second at this exciting freeform station! I started the Olympia Experimental Music Festival in 1995 and have been playing music off and on in the Dead Air Fresheners since 1997.
