show 127 – Laurel Brauns

Laurel Brauns was my guest tonight. Todd C Bayles co-hosted. I did not realize till after the show was over that Laurel no longer lives in Portland; she moved back to the East Coast last year.

Oh well- we treated her like she was still a Portlander.

Thanks to Laurel for the great music, and to Todd for lending his trademark wit to the evening.

Next week, my guest is Libby Kirkpatrick. We’ve been trying to work out an appearance for awhile now, so glad its finally gonna work out. It’ll be pre-taped and air in my absence, so don’t try to call in with questions or heckling or anything.
