4 January 2020 (First 2020 Show!)

A new year and mostly new music, including several tracks from the Unexplained Sounds Group compilation Anthology of Persian Music in honor of our sisters and brothers in Iran under threat of war because of stupid evil leadership conflict between their government and ours. A few older pieces by the likes of Sun Ra and the Chocolate Watchband to round things out.

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.
