Star power’s running high this week on WKE. Portland Mayor Sam Adams and Thurston Moore are just the
beginning. Check out a summary of the newest episodes and guests
below, and get the whole she-bang at WKE.
Episode 4 starts off with a chat between Rev.
Shines of Lifesavas and Libretto about Portland’s unique approach
to hip-hop, then we head to City Hall for an interview with Portland Mayor Sam Adams about the free PDX Pop Now! concerts. Electropop darlings YACHT play live and talk about the influence of
Marfa, Texas, on their recent
album, See Mystery Lights.
Part 3 explores “the skaters’ gaze”—the way a skateboarder looks at
the urban environment in a completely different way from others. It
becomes something not just to be experienced, but to be used. Includes
interviews with musicians Ian MacKaye and Thurston Moore, pro skater Tommy Guerrero, Fausto Vitello (founder of Thrasher magazine) and more.
Knucklewood is a mix of animation and live action. The animated world,
Knucklewood, can receive TV signals from the “live action” world. In
this episode, Parrot and Wolf lose their TV connection and when the
signal comes back, the two worlds collide.
