Are you local?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Rich in Washington:

Plop! And we're here now!
  4:01pm Martinibomb:

This isn't my mix yet??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Rich in Washington:

I'm only local in my willingness to drive there. I tell people outside of the PNW that I'm from Portland, OR.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

  4:02pm Martinibomb:

And we're off!
  4:02pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

This happens a lot. Mr fab will look into it

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Duckman Jan:

I'm in and I'm trying to figure out my location...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Mr Fab:

Hello larry! Hello martinbomb! Hello all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Rich in Washington:

Tom Peterson is my spirit avatar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm not from Portland but I've been there and Brighton is kind of Portland ish :-)
  4:03pm Crispy:

I am local
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Duckman Jan:

but of course: hi everybody!
  4:04pm Martinibomb:

So the show today is all Bands who are currently active from Portland, Oregon that I think would fit into Sheena's Jungle Room. hey it's Chrispy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Rich in Washington:

Have you been here/there GeorgyGirl? That's cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Rich in Washington:

I don't tell people from Portland that I'm from Vancouver, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Yep. I lived in Vancouver for nearly 10 years when I was a kid :-) So weekends were places like Seattle, Portland etc
  4:05pm Martinibomb:

No way!! Really??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Vancouver BC, not Washington
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Rich in Washington:

In Portland media, Vancouver Man is roughly analogous to the nation's Florida Man.
  4:06pm Martinibomb:

well close enough.. only 5 hours from portland
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm Rich in Washington:

Wow! That's cool, GeorgyGirl!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The great PNW weather ;-)
  4:06pm Crispy:

Every time my in-laws from Jersey visit they love to tell us how they could tell they were in Portland as soon as they got off the plane
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Rich in Washington:

I automatically knew which Vancouver you were referring to! Funny, that. No one comes from Vancouver Wa, or admits to it.
  4:08pm Chuck Olstveek:

No one fart!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

  4:08pm Blorvak:

Hey, I remembered to tune in!
  4:08pm Martinibomb:

It's chuck! Thanks for joining us bud!
  4:09pm Martinibomb:

Thanks for tuning in Blorvak and jumping into the chat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm Rich in Washington:

Yay! It's a party in here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

In a complete random bit of weirdness I've just finished a guest show for Danny on Monday which is local Brighton punk bands .... MB and I have mind meld!!!!!!! Woah!!!!!
  4:10pm Martinibomb:

Shweeet! that's what is cool about having remote Djs we can bring some local flavor
  4:10pm Chuck Olstveek:

Great show! I'm enjoying some yellow mustard on pumpernickel and a diet slice while listening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

If the people who've just joined us are in these bands then you need to know that I am LOVING this :-)
  4:11pm Martinibomb:

Rich just had ate a Reuben
  4:11pm Martinibomb:

@Chuck we always talk about food
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Ok, now I REALLY want some rye bread
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm Rich in Washington:

What about frogs?
  4:12pm Martinibomb:

My fave line! burned into my brain for eternity
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm Rich in Washington:

was it you, Martinibomb, who was asking about that PSA years ago?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

You want me to eat a frog? Ewwww. Lol
  4:13pm Chuck Olstveek:

Frogs taste like fishy chicken with lots of tiny bones
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This music is all bloody excellent
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm Rich in Washington:

I still want to know who did Bumpity's theme song.
  4:13pm Martinibomb:

Probably.. I was trying to find it for awhile but now it's on youtube. The reason the girl asks about Frogs is because march is kite flying season here and it's also when the frogs are born
  4:13pm Christine:

"I like frogs." Oh the memories!
  4:14pm Blorvak:

Released 2019? Sweet, we're in the future!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Rich in Washington:

They really do, Chuck. It's not just a saying.
  4:14pm Martinibomb:

@GG these are all active bands I'm playing. If you were in Portland on any given night you could see one of these acts live
  4:14pm Martinibomb:

@Blorvak yeah i got an advance it's not out until Feburary
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm Rich in Washington:

We have one of those Chinese all-you-can-eat buffet type places on this side of the river and that's a selection. Had to try it.
  4:15pm Martinibomb:

Hey thanks for joining us today Christine. I assume from Dartgun and the vignettes who'll I'll be playing shortly
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That would be so cool. AND I've heard the food is excellent - loads of plant-based choices :-)
  4:17pm Martinibomb:

@GG yeah pdx is 90% vegan you'd love it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Rich in Washington:

It seems like there was this whole thing on Facebook about the unearthing of the Kiteman PSA.
  4:19pm Blorvak:

Love Wavesauce.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think you'll find it's "Cool Hhhhhhhwip" LOL!
  4:20pm Crispy:

Satin Chaps! Didn't we karaoke with some of those dudes? They're goooooood
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Mr Fab:

Was Wavesauce the 1 with the theremin?
Avatar 4:21pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@Rich Aha, you were my Vancouver WA listener on Monday?
  4:22pm Martinibomb:

@Crispy you are correct. The drummer that's his baby. He's also in the Cool Whips now playing drums
  4:22pm Martinibomb:

@Mr. Fab you are correct sir!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Rich in Washington:

@Kenzo: Shhhh! Portland!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm Rich in Washington:

Kenzo's show is on right after this show! I was listening in the future back then.
  4:26pm Martinibomb:

Cool guess I'll tune in for Kenzo after this
Avatar 4:27pm ValMonty:

@Martinibomb, great show today!
Avatar 4:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Good guess
  4:27pm Martinibomb:

@ValMonty wow!! Thank you so much -- glad you are digging it. I put some work into it.
  4:30pm Crispy:

Gah, love all these bands - I got to get out more and check out some shows
  4:31pm Martinibomb:

@Crispy yesssss! We got some cool groups in town making great music. Nothing like seeing a live band that you only paid $5 to get in to see at your local watering hole
  4:31pm Trickin' Luke:

Great set Matinibomb!
  4:31pm Christine:

"Airwaves" - first song I played on my first KPSU show.
  4:32pm Trickin' Luke:

I call you Matini after too many Martinibombs!
  4:32pm Martinibomb:

@Trickin' Luke! Thanks for recording all the groovy Satin Chaps music. Love that Creamsicle tune!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Rich in Washington:

God, Martinibomb, I'm so out of touch with Portland bands. This is all amazing stuff!
  4:34pm Martinibomb:

This is Christine's song she's in Dartgun -- so we got two of the artists I've played today in the chat room
  4:35pm Trickin' Luke:

Christine and Trickin' Luke in the house! We're fans.
  4:35pm Blorvak:

All this Portland rock is making me miss Centaurpalooza. Lots of bands on this playlist played the parking lot.
  4:38pm Martinibomb:

@Blorvak I miss stuff like Centaurpalooza too. kinda had it in mind when making this.. but picked bands that I thought fit with the vibe of Sheena's
  4:38pm Trickin' Luke:

@Blorvak: Just got goosebumps thinking of Centaurpalooza. Can't help but think of the Pat Kerns song, "So Long City."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Rich in Washington:

Oh wow. There's a Centaurpalooza album! www.discogs.com...
  4:39pm Blorvak:

It was replaced by gigantic condos! For real!
  4:40pm Blorvak:

Centarpalooza album is great! I have it!
  4:40pm Trickin' Luke:

Correction - Pat Kearns "So Long City." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0UIL57Du1A
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Rich in Washington:

DO they still do it? It sounds like fun. I've never been.
Still missing No Fest and its weird, shambolic greatness. I stopped going years ago after it sort of caved in on itself.
  4:41pm Blorvak:

No, the last Centaurpalooza was the tenth one, a few years ago. Centaur Guitar lost the lower parking lot space to a company that is putting condos in.
  4:43pm Trickin' Luke:

CREATURE PARTY!!!!!!! Love this band so much!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Rich in Washington:

Ah. The current Portland story all over. Stay still long enough and they'll replace you with a clone-do-minium.
  4:44pm Martinibomb:

Creature party is fucking awesome! Shits about to go off the rails here in a moment
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Clone-do-minium! That is a genius word. They've just demolished one of the oldest cinemas, not just in Brighton but the entire UK to build condos :-( Heartbreaking.
  4:50pm Martinibomb:

This Wilder track is super over the top high energy rawk -- maybe doesn't quite fit the vibe of Sheena's but I had to play it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Absolutely superb show - I've thoroughly enjoyed all of it :-)
Avatar 4:58pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Want to join in on the sound collage journey? It's over here on the Drummer stream in 2 minutes! wfmu.org...
  4:59pm Blorvak:

Nice work!
  4:59pm Martinibomb:

Shweet thanks Kenzo!! gonna tune in. @GG glad you dug it. I feel like I play stuff from bands that aren't around so much it's fun to play stuff from people who are actually performing right now!!
  4:59pm Crispy:

Wholeheartedly agree with DJ GG, so great. Also loving last week's show too, check it out if you're like me and don't know how to do the time difference math
  5:00pm Martinibomb:

Thanks for listening everyone! Glad I could give everyone a good overview of music from Portland Oregon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:00pm Mr Fab:

But...i thought "rock is dead"? Heh heh. Awesome-sauce, will track down this stuff.
