Jim Pepper 4 hour special!

Jim Pepper (born James G. Pepper in Salem, Oregon, June 18, 1941; d. Portland, Oregon, February 10, 1992) was an American jazz saxophonist, composer, and singer of Native American ancestry.

Beginning in the late 1960s, Pepper became a pioneer of fusion jazz. His band, The Free Spirits, (active between 1965 and 1968, with guitarist Larry Coryell) is credited as the first to combine elements of jazz and rock. His primary instrument was the tenor saxophone (he also played flute and soprano saxophone), and his characteristic incisive, penetrating tone and soulful delivery was unique for its time. A similar timbre was taken up by later players such as Jan Garbarek, Michael Brecker, and David Sanborn.

PDX Pop Now artists from this year and previous years.

Need a primer for PDX Pop Now? What's the big deal with this thing?

Portland's music scene is largely collaborative; cooperation trumps competition. PDX Pop Now! stems from the idea of "local music emboldened by local recognition," and that Portland’s self-sustained scene had reached a level deserving of recognition, discovery, enhancement, stimulation, participation, accessibility and—most importantly—celebration!

Joe Carducci presents a memorial to David Lightbourne

Joe Carducci guest hosts a tribute to David Lightbourne.

David Lightbourne, 1942-2010, was an American folk musician and sometime-writer who, together with other counterculture mystagogues, was part of a scene coalescing in Portland in the 1970s. Using elements of their country's traditional music, they concocted their own strange breakthrough brew. David died on April 29th.

David was also a KBOO DJ, and got Joe on the air in the late 70's. The tribute will include live performances.
