Videographer by Day with my company EMA Video Productions - and Folk Music DJ when ever I can.
Playing mostly contemporary folk music from the 60s and present day.
ITs unfortunate that the great music from the 60s does not get much play anymore. Artists like Tom Paxton,Doc Watson,Pete Seeger,Peter Yarrow, Ian Tyson,Gordon Lightfoot, Donavon and Joni Mitchell (just to name a few) had something to say and said it so well through music.
I feel so fortunate to be able to share my music tastes with the Portland Community here on KBOO.

Community dialogue is important. At 8am every Thursday Voices from the Edge lends a KBOO microphone to informed guests you might not hear anywhere else. With an hour to invest, the call-in format engages listeners in meaningful conversations about crucial issues like racial disparity, government accountability, environmental justice and politics on local, state and national levels. Join lively discussions about concerns that are important to you and our community. Together we’ll make Oregon and our nation a better place for a larger number of those living here.
