Underground USA is a symposium at the University of Oregon's Portland campus on October 15th, paying tribute to great underground artists of the Pacific Northwest.

Joining us in the studio to talk about the event is Underground USA keynote speaker Patrick Rosenkranz, author of The Artist Himself: A Rand Holmes Retrospective and The Mythology of S. Clay Wilson.  Patrick was a staff member at Portland's first major underground newspaper The Willamette Bridge.

Also joining us is author and media critic Norman Solomon, as well as illustrator and cartoonist David Chelsea, both of whom contributed to early 70's weekly The Portland Scribe.  Other Scribe contributors include critic Richard Gehr and animator Bill Plympton, who are also speaking at Underground USA.
