Celebrated Portland comics artists Barry Deutsch and Jenn Manley Lee have been collaborating and inspiring each other since high school. Their separate projects, Barry's Hereville and Jenn's Dicebox, began as epic web comics but have now been collected and printed in hardcover graphic novel form. Barry and Jenn sat down at the KBOO studios with host S.W. Conser to discuss how comics are changing our conversations on gender, culture, politics, technology, and mythology.
Along with discussions of The Hinterland and other projects in the offing, listeners will hear tales of John and Chad's adventures in Belize (some never before discussed in either the print or the broadcast media) as well as some of John and Chad's ideas for film and game production in Portland.
KBOO proudly presents the world premiere of Dennis Nyback's old-school musical Ten Cents a Dance, performed live on the stage of Portland's Clinton Street Theater on April 11, 2013 as part of KBOO's Radio Pictures series.
Set in 1941, Ten Cents a Dance gives a new shine to such vintage tunes as I've Got a Crush on You (George and Ira Gershwin) and Get Yourself a New Broom (Harold Arlen and Ted Kohler), all wrapped up in a very modern narrative.
