KBOO Part Two

My second stint at the helm at KBOO Portland 90.7 FM came on December 19, 2014, just 7 days after my debut.

A rapidly organised playlist set out to take listeners through the progression of the form from 1920 onwards. One number recorded in each year starting in 1920 and .. seeing how far we’d get by the time midnight struck once again. Once again, I had a two hour slot, from 10pm. I’d like to try this again sometime, with more prep time…
