23 November 2018 (Special Black Friday Night Show!)

What’s This Called? substituted for the Freeform Portland regular program On Stage Tonight on Friday November 23rd from 6-8 PM PST. As the regular show features live performances, we followed suit and provided two hours of live experimental recordings, including several from the WTC exclusive vault.

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.
