I'm an anti-imperialist, anarcho-socialist transgender sort of gal. PressWatch began on KAZI Austin in 1986, as an attempt to stoke the fires of revolution with counterpropaganda and "the news you're not supposed to know." Expect a radical analysis, and information culled from a vast array of sources, from Radio Havana to the Polish press-- or even interviews with notables like Naomi Klein, Howard Zinn, Judi Bari, Dr. Niman, and Michio Kaku--and introspection from my own life experiences.
Everyone thinks they're interesting, and I'm no exception!
Presently doing the 3rd and 5th Wednesday 5:30-7am on Pastures of Plenty.
and THE SINGER/SONGWRITER EDITION of the Monday Sampler on the 1st Mondays of the month 2 - 4pm.
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.
