9 November 2019 (Give Until It Hurts…)

What’s This Called? is proud to be moving into our second year at Freeform Portland, which we honestly believe to be the coolest station the program has ever lived at. It’s that time of year where we implore you that come to WTC for the most obscure and independently produced experimental audio work around to help keep the station where we make the shows afloat! https://www.freeformportland.org/donate/

Your host Ricardo Wang was joined by frequent cohost DJ Victrola of Guitar Shop to make the case for why Freeform Portland is doing revolutionary work fighting the culture wars on behalf of diversity and free creativity. Much great experimental music was shared in the process.

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.
