The Jim Pepper Project: An Interview with Don Horn

program date: 
Fri, 05/09/2014
An interview with Don Horn, founder of Triangle Productions about their current play The Jim Pepper Project.

May 8 - 31, 2014

Thursday, Friday, Saturday @ 7:30 pm
Sunday Matinees @ 2 pm

(no show Sunday, May 11)

Produced at
The Sanctuary@Sandy Plaza
(1785 NE Sandy Blvd)

There will be two talk backs during the run which will be held after the Sunday May 18 and 25th performances facilitated by Donita Fry Portland Youth and Elders Council Coordinator of the NATIVE AMERICAN YOUTH AND FAMILY CENTER.

Jim Pepper was born James G. Pepper in Salem, Oregon, June 18, 1941; d. Portland, Oregon, February 10, 1992. He was an American jazz saxophonist, composer, and singer of Native American ancestry. Songwriter and saxophonist Jim Pepper adapted the song "Witchi Tai To" from an ancient peyote chant that he learned from his Native American grandfather. "Witchi Tai To" was first recorded by Pepper's group, the short lived, Everything Is Everything. The group's producers encouraged Pepper to express his Native American heritage in his music, and helped him work out the arrangement and English translation. To this day "Witchi Tai To" is the only hit in the history of the Billboard pop charts (reaching #69 in 1969) to feature an authentic Native American chant.

THREE DEAD PRINCES: An excerpt

May 14, 2012

The heat of the day makes me want to hide out inside and do some editing in the air conditioned luxury of Studio 2, here at KBOO Community Radio in Portland. I am editing the audio book Three Dead Princes, that we recorded in the cold and rainy part of the Spring.

The book is Three Dead Princes, a fairytale by Danbert Nobacon, founding member of the band Chumbawamba. The book was published by Exterminating Angel Press in October, 2010. On October 4th, 2010 Danbert was reading at the Powell’s on Hawthorne, and a few of us KBOO folks went to the event. During the QandA, an audience member asked about plans for an audiobook, of which there were none. “That’s what we do!” came a silent chorus of KBOO people, and so we worked on making it happen! Between coordinating with publisher Tod Davies, Danbert, and getting a grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council, months past, paths were made through untrodden woods and fields, and we began the project in earnest in February, 2012.

Our Voice Actors:

Danbert Nobacon -   Narrator / The Fool / The Gricklegrack / The Black Cat
Zoe Loranger - Princess Alexandra Stormybald Wilson
SW Concer - King Walterbald
Emily Young - Queen Gwynmerelda / Gwynmerangel

An Interview with KELLY CARLIN

program date: 
Thu, 05/10/2012

Through storytelling, classic video footage, and family memorabilia, Kelly Carlin, the only child of iconoclastic comedian George Carlin, chronicles over 40 years of her life with her famous father. A funny, poignant and honest look at the man who not only redefined 20th century comedy, but inspired generations of comedy fans with such classic routines as Hippie Dippie Weatherman, Class Clown, The Seven Dirty Words, A Place for Your Stuff, and Modern Man. Kelly reveals what it was like to be swept up into the life and career of her father from his early days as a straight comic through his transformation into a counter culture hero and iconoclastic social commentator to the very last days of his life.

KBOO's Kate McCourt interviewed Kelly Carlin on Monday May 7th about her upcoming performances in Portland, this Sunday at the Alberta Rose Theatre, and on Live Wire Radio.
