As regards art radio, there’s a new sheriff in town. Cyrus Smith is hosting a weekly broadcast in conjunction with the Portland State University MFA Monday Night Lecture Series. Visiting artists are interviewed live on the air the day of their lecture. Here he is above, masterfully controlling the sound board.
But when school is out, the choice of guests is up to Cyrus and yesterday he had me on the air. It was fun to be back down in that dark sub-basement broadcast booth. And obviously it was missed because I mercilessly talked a mile a minute. We must have covered just about everything. Thanks Cyrus!
