25 August 2018 (25th Anniversary Show!)

25 years ago in August of 1993 I arrived in Olympia, Washington and began a new radio show at KAOS 89.3 FM centered around experimental music and named What’s This Called? The show would run for a decade at that station until I moved to Portland in 2003. It then took me two years to find a new home at KPSU where it has now lived for another 13 years. While the Olympia show was a late night affair, What’s This Called? at KPSU has always been on Saturdays from Noon to 1 Pacific Standard Time.

This episode was an all cd affair, just like it was when it launched in ’93!

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! I've been doing the show at KPSU since 2005 and they will have to pry it from my cold dead hands to get me to stop. I started the Olympia Experimental Music Festival in 1995 and have been playing music off and on in the Dead Air Fresheners since 1997. I'm thrilled to be on the air and the internet at KPSU and part of such an exciting community of creative folks.
