One of the hosts for 2nd Monday Labor Radio at 6pm
I have been a KBOO member for nearly ten years and began volunteering with John Talley, host of "Indian World" in 2005 as an intern completing my interdisciplinary studies bachelors degree from Marylhurst University.
I am fortunate to be able to consult with John as a radio mentor, friend and Mohawk elder.
I am a Cherokee Nation of Ok enrolled tribal member and I have some Osage and Choctaw in my line. Although I grew up in Ok I have been in the Portland area for long time.
I have ties with NAYA, NICWA, NARA and PPS Indian Education project and other Native American groups.
My interest in producing this show is to connect folks in the Portland and surrounding area for a stronger Native American Community.
I started at KBOO about 10 years ago in the KBOO Youth Collective making and producing radio segments. Currently I am a member of Circle A Radio, a volunteer instructor for our beginning radio classes, and am filling in for the Pickled Feather Express the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month.
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.
KBOO programmer for 26 years producing the World Beat Connection. World Beat music is Afro-Caribbean and includes music from all over the African continent and various styles of Caribbean, including but not limited to Reggae, Soca, Zouk, Salsa, Compas, and Rumba.
DR.J has been in/on Radio for over a decade and Djing for longer. Spending most of his free time traveling the globe & collecting audio gems along the way he has assembled one of the most eclectic collections ever known. KBOO is one of the last places where WE can still hear and play music and news that matters!! Radio does not have to come with commercials or an agenda. We like to call it "The Best Music you've Never Heard"
