About:Originally from southern California, I went to college in San Francisco. Moved to Portland from Sacramento 9 1/2 years ago, mostly 'cause my wife and I wanted to live somewhere progressive, hip, genuine and beautiful, and we felt it was waiting for us here. And we were right!
Every 3-4 years I go on some sort of medical mission overseas (in real life I'm an operating room nurse). 2 years ago I was in Bangladesh, and the room I was staying in had intermittent wi-fi. I never travel without music and portable speakers, so when i had the signal I could listen to opbmusic in Bangladesh via my iPod touch. That was pretty cool.
And I have a Triumph Bonneville. The coolest thing ever.
I'm a crazy music fan and I've been into opbmusic for about 4-5 years.Its the station i'd been waiting all my life to find. I listen mostly via HD radio. I called in sick to go to the Sadies opbmusic session about 3 years ago at Mississippi Studios and struck up a conversation with Jeremy Peterson, who told me most of the dj's were volunteers. The rest, as they say..
I've stuck with it cause I love being around so much music. It's a buzz to play music for kindred souls and music freaks. And cause they haven't kicked me out yet.
