We visited the new Freeform Portland studio by Zoom. Soon we will set foot inside and not too far in the future, What’s This Called? Will move back out of the Elusive Hangar and into the new REAL radio station. Ryan Ray will get a huge break from podcast engineering when that happens! But we don’t even have dates yet, so here we have Lennon joining Ricardo again from the Elusive Hangar to prove once again that Expunkimental Music begins at home.

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.
