Radio Frequency begins tomorrow on KPOV’s The Point

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

This morning, Bend’s community radio station, KPOV, debuted The Point, a new daily program covering local news, arts/entertainment, recreation, politics and more. The 30-minute show airs at 9 a.m. every morning, and you can read more about it in this mid-April column by my colleague Lily Raff.

I’m bringing it up because yours truly will be providing The Point’s weekly segment on the live-music scene in Central Oregon, which we’re calling Radio Frequency. Every Thursday, shortly after 9 a.m., I’ll join the show’s hosts to talk about what’s happening locally, music-wise, over the coming week, and where you can read lots more about it all: GO! Magazine in The Bulletin, of course.

So tune in tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. and hear me try to figure out what I’m doing on the fly. KPOV is at 88.9 FM on your radio dial, and also streaming at the station’s website.


More radio action: Reviewing the year in local music on KPOV’s Center Stage today at 2 p.m.

Saturday, December 31st, 2011

Continuing the Great Frequency Radio Blitz of Late 2011, I’ll join Rick Miller, TK and Dennis Plant on KPOV’s Center Stage program today from 2 to 4 p.m. to talk about the local music scene in 2011 and play some songs.

If you’re in Central Oregon, try tuning in at 88.9 FM on your radio dial. If that doesn’t work (or you live elsewhere), stream it live at KPOV’s website!

talking about local music on Clear 101.7 FM today, Thursday and Friday

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

I totally forgot to mention this Monday and Tuesday (I blame the peppermint bark haze I was living in at the time) but Dori Donoho — host of the excellent Homegrown music show on Clear 101.7 FM and all-around awesome supporter of local music — was nice enough to have me as a guest for her daily Homegrown Hits segment this week to talk about the year in music in Central Oregon.

On Monday and Tuesday, we played songs by Laura Curtis and Mike Potter, respectively, and chatted a bit about each of those artists. Today, we’ll feature Cadence. Tomorrow it’s Tuck and Roll, and Friday is Larry and His Flask. All of these artists and songs are available for free and legal download on The Bulletin’s Near/Far compilation of 2011’s best tunes.

Anyway, the segment airs around 10:30 a.m. (that’s soon for you Cadence fans!) but you should go ahead and tune in earlier and listen to Dori’s whole show, because it’s cool and she’s cool and you’re cool, too … right?

On the radio today …

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

A quick note: I’ll be joining Rick Miller on KPOV’s Center Stage show today from 2-4 p.m. to talk about the Central Oregon music scene in 2010 and The Bulletin’s Near/Far downloads project. We will, of course, play a bunch of tunes by local artists.

So again: At 2 p.m. today, tune in to 106.7 FM on your radio dial or stream the show from KPOV’s website!

On the radio tonight …

Frequency fans! Here’s a chance to experience the glory of this blog in another medium: radio!

So again: 8 p.m.! Tonight! 101.7 FM on your radio dial! Be there.

I’m on KPOV’s “Right Here, Right Now” in an hour

Friday, April 16th, 2010

A few weeks ago, I participated in a panel discussion about culture in Central Oregon for “Right Here, Right Now,” a program on Bend’s community radio station, KPOV.

Also on the panel were Maralyn Thoma, owner of 2nd Street Theater, Linda Spring, who’s active in the local alternative arts scene, and Bob Woodward, who’s been involved in Bend’s creative culture for more than three decades.

That discussion was recorded and will air at 5 p.m. (or shortly thereafter) today on KPOV, which is 106.7 FM on your radio dial. You can also stream it at That’s about 45 minutes away; sorry for the late notice.

It was a good, fun discussion, and I hope you’ll give it a listen.
