16 March 2019 (includes What’s This Country?)

Two entire separate two hour shows make up this week’s streaming and/or downloading offerings! First there’s the bi-weekly edition of What’s This Called? at Freeform Portland, and it’s an episode chock full of 90% brand new experimental musics! Then later that day Ricardo Wang returned to the Freeform studio to lay down What’s This Country? substituting for the High Steppers in Sin City program. Tune in and feel free to cry in your beer.

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. I'm thrilled to be on the air and the internet at KPSU and part of such an exciting community of creative folks.
