31 August 2019 (w/ guest BC Miller)

This week on What’s This Called?, your host Ricardo Wang was joined in the Freeform Portland studio by local PDX dj, musician and zine editor B.c. Miller!

BC is the admin of the CIRCLE OF TYRANTS music discussion Facebook group which functions as his online zine. It was originally intended to be the name of his Portland noiserock band, Sewers of Paris, who broke up in 2013. He put out fanzines Fringe Weird and Ears For Breakfast back in the ’90s, and was a cohost of the classic KBOO program Night of the Living Tongue for some years as well. He has his ear to the #underground, especially #NoWave, obscure #GarageRock#PostHardcoreand other #AvantRock that lives on the fringes.

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.
