Ned and Mary Boyne  move into an old manor house in Dorset, deep in the English countryside. Its need of major renovation and its isolation are exactly what the young couple had dreamed of finding once that had 'made it'.  And the story that there is even a ghost, makes the place even more appealing. But strangely, all they can learn about this haunting is that  you won't know you have seen the ghost until 'afterward'. And this leaves them totally unprepared for what does happen.

PDX Pop Now began in 2004, it is a non-profit org that produces this amazing festival each summer. All local music, free to the public (all ages). Each year they also release a two-disc compilation of local music.

Here's a good guess of some bands I'll be playing on the show this morning: Viva Voce, Sleater-Kinney, Thermals, YACHT, The Blow, Talkdemonic, Shaky Hands, Menomena, Syndel.
