Freeform Winter Solstice Challenge

Instead of our regularly scheduled two hour What’s This Called? we are participating in the weekend long Freeform Winter Solstice DJ Challenge! Our half hour mix of experimental, psych, and post-punk flurries should chill your shortest day and longest night. The show airs three times this weekend on Freeform Portland interspersed between other amazing Solstice DJ sets from Freeform all-stars. You may listen below at any time to the WTC contribution.

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.
