The late night radio show that comes on in the afternoon.

It 's the fifth Monday of the month, which means it is a Blue Moon Monday Special on today's Sampler. So, to give us a break from the hot weather, not that we don't love the hot weather, Fortunato will cool things off with a 'Xmas In July' presentation of Winter Wonderland Music on part of today's show!  DK and Mona will also drop by to talk about current movies and television shows. It's the talk show that stops talking to listen to music, the music show that stops playing music to have a conversation.

Some great electronic music on today's show. First, two Parisian lads who have settled here in Portland, Exotic Club. And, up from the Bay Area, the amazing Metal Mother.  Who are appearing in town together later this week, but came here to the Sampler to preview how rockin' and cosmic their show will be. Meanwhile, Sabrina has fired up her van and dropped  Fortunato and Pinball Keith  over by SE 12th and Hawthorne, to look at some old and new pinball machines. Where they'll meet up with, former computer designer for Williams Pinball, Greg Dunlap. It all proved to be fun and educational.
