Today from 10am to noon (PST) I'll be in conversation with Ben Pink and Sara McCormick about The 2018 PORTLAND LOVE SHOW. The show began in February 2006 with the goal of creating a safe and engaging space to highlight the varying attitudes about all types of love. The show was initially crafted in response to the annual deluge of heterosexist, consumerist, romance-centric advertising that Americans experience each year leading up to Valentine’s Day, For this year's event, they've invited over 200 artists to make one artwork each that digs a little deeper into the mysteries of Love.
There's more about all of this, and we are going to chat about it today on the radio. Stream the show online at freeformportland.org or, if you are in Portland, you can hit us up on the dial at 90.3fm. We'll be playing love inspired tunes by Bettye Swan, Orange Juice, The Drums, Buzzcocks, Joseph, Joan Armatrading, Dntel, Widowspeak, Bill Withers and MORE.
Oh yes! The Portland Love Show runs February 3rd-March 12th, 2018 at the Ford Gallery in PDX.
I'll be part of this shindig too, mostly officiating marriages and divorces to those who need it. Read more about that HERE.
