Mark Woolley on Art Focus

Tomorrow my guest on Art Focus will be Mark Woolley. He’s been in the news a lot because he is bringing his gallery to a close. He has one more show to mount in that space: I could have been a Collecta. We’ll talk about his future plans and reminisce about his favorite shows.

It’s also pledge-drive time for KBOO - which means I’ll be offering a couple of family memberships to the Portland Art Museum during my show, as a way of thanking you for supporting the station. We’re also offering a glamour-filled evening at Bluehour. I hope you tune in.

This website won't allow me to paste in my copy, and I'm not going to re-write it; so go to portland.indymedia.org please, and look for "rationality and influenza" in the Open Publishing column.  Thanks

May Day: Is it still relevant 123 years later?

May 1, 2009 marks the 123rd anniversary of a rally for the eight-hour day in Chicago's Haymarket Square that ended with a police riot that left over a dozen dead. The political trial and hanging of four anarchists that followed sparked protests around the world and the designation by the Second International of May 1 as International Workers' Day, more commonly known as May Day. But does commemoration of a 19th century incident have relevance for people in the 21st century? Does demonstrating on May Day have meaning for you?

Our Lee Stripling Show

 Lee Stripling died earlier in the week. He was 86 years old and an incandescent gentleman. He'd lived in Seattle for many years working his day job, raising his family & after he retired returning to fiddling. Many of us saw him at the American Festival of Fiddle Tunes at Port Townsend, Washington. He's also been a regular at Portland's Old Time Gathering. He's the son of Charlie Stripling one or the most recorded fiddlers in Alabama in the 20's (as the fiddling half of the duo "The Stripling Brothers). Bon Voyage Lee Stripling.

April 18 - Playlist Spotlight

His name is David Ornette Cherry and what a joyful kaleidoscope of sound he and his band members, Organic Roots, created at Jimmy Maks on Thursday, April 16.  Not only was David celebrating his birthday, which was on April 13, but he was celebrating the release of his latest CD Organic Journey, making it the fifth and final CD in the "Organic" series.

The blend of music was filled with worldy sounds with one band member playing the accordian while another played the electronic soundscape.  That's actually nothing when you learn about the many instruments David plays: piano, spirit flute, dousn ' gounni, melodica and oh ya, don't forgot the computer, a MAC was sitting on top of the piano.  Yes, if you know how to produce music then you know the right computerized tool to use is a MAC.
