Two separate incarnations of your host Ricardo Wang met through the simple philosophy that all times are happening simultaneously. Ricardo Wang in the KPSU blithely spun Glenn Branca and then took a phone call from Ricardo Wang live at the St. John’s Parade in Portland’s most surreal neighborhood. Hilarity and a good deal of distortion ensued. Try the place on Lombard.
Ricardo Wang is out ill this week, and with that in mind, we turn to a show from 10 years ago, when he was fairly new at KPSU. Tune in and enjoy this quality, decade old radio program to help get your Saturday started right.
Remembering the ’00s (pronounced “ooze”). The Ooze Review. On January 2nd & January 9th, Ricardo Wang gave a two-hour overview of the experimental music highlights from the first decade of this new millennium. Here, in a special two-hour presentation, is: Remembering the ’00s.
