Complete Control


Friday 10pm - 12am
 

 
My name is Joe Sib and along with my partner Bill Armstrong we own Sideonedummy Records. Home to: Flogging Molly, Gogol Bordello, Dusty Roads and The River Band, ZoX, The Casualties, Gaslight Anthem, The Briggs, Bedouin Soundclash, The Dan Band, 7Seconds, Kill Your Idols and many more.

In 1990 after growing up in San Jose I decided it was time to head to LA. After hanging around for about 6 months I met three guys from Chicago and we decided to start a band. The band was called WAX and we spent the next 6 years touring and recording. Remember the Spike Jonze "guy on fire" video? That was WAX. Wax melted in 1995 and then I put together the "all star" band 22 Jacks. Featuring Steve Soto(Adolescents) Chris Shiflett(Foo Fighters) Matt Riddle(Face to Face) and Jose Medeles(The Breeders) 22Jacks recorded two studio albums (Uncle Bob and Going North) as well as a Live EP, Overserved which included a guest vocal appearance from Joey Ramone. 22Jacks' tour schedule was extensive, including several stints across the United States, Canada and Australia.

I have been involved in Punk Rock since I was 14 years old. I was in my first band at 16 and went on my first tour at 18(Front-Line) opening for The Circle Jerks and 7 Seconds. I grew up in San Jose California in the early 80's and was lucky enough to be a part of an early DIY scene that was home to great bands like The Faction, Los Olvidados, Social Unrest, Executioner, Crucifix, The Stiffs, Grim Reality and many more. In the early 1980's a radio program hosted by Alex Morgan called "Vinyl Rights" aired every Thursday night. This program was religiously listened to by every "punker" in San Jose. Vinyl Rights was the place to find out who was coming to town, what new release was in stores or who left what band to play with another band. But, most importantly it was the place to find out about new music by new bands. I hope that Complete Control Radio will have the same impact on listeners as "Vinyl Rights" had on me.

Hosting Complete Control Radio is a dream come true. I hope you all enjoy it!

Area 54


Monday - Friday: 12:00 AM - 1:00 AM
Saturday - Sunday: 12:00 AM - 2:00 AM
 

 

AREA54 are Tim and Mike. They met while working in the windsurf/snowboard industry. They both shared an intense passion for music, sports and sick humor and became good friends. They started AREA54 by mistake; actually the name was a mistake. As they wrote down ideas on what to call themselves a half hour before their very first on-air show!! AREA51 and Studio 54 were transposed and hence the birth of area54, it stuck.

Tim: "Mike somehow talked one of the Gorge radio stations into letting us have a specialty electronic show on Sunday night (He actually sold it as smooth jazz!). The station was really archaic. We learned to splice our ads onto 8 track tape, remember this was 1997!! The mixing board was from the 50’s and it had these huge knobs and switches that looked liked they controlled the power of NYC!"

Mike: "Our first night was the worst. We had just come up with our name and we were really nervous. The station was a 100,000 watt station that reached from east Portland all the way to the Blue Mountains in Eastern Oregon and to Bend as well. When we got to the station nobody was there and we found the station manager sick and throwing up in the bathroom. He ended up running back and forth between the studio and the bathroom showing us how to operate the board. Luckily it was the same board that I used at a college station in San Francisco so we ended up doing all right. After throwing up for about an hour the station manager just gave us the keys to the building and told us to lock up after we were done. We ended up having those same keys and being on air for almost 5 years until the station changed their format and gave us the boot."

 
   

Greasy Kid Stuff


Sunday 8am - 9am
 

 
Mining the history of recorded music for greasy gems since 1995!

Greasy Kid Stuff, the radio show for alterna-kids and the grups who love them, was born in 1995 and since 2006 has been broadcasting its rebellious teen years on Portland’s alternative 94/7fm. Over the years, Greasy Kid Stuff has gained a national reputation and widespread acclaim.
Author Neal Pollack (“Alternadad”) has called it “the best kid’s radio program of all time” and They Might Be Giants and Caspar Babypants (aka Chris Ballew from PUSA) each wrote and recorded songs in honor of the show.

While the kids’ music world has blown up both commercially and artistically in recent years, Greasy Kid Stuff remains at somewhat of a distance from the movement it helped to inspire. Part of the reason is Belinda and Hova’s steadfast refusal to draw a distinction between “kid” and “adult” music. Much of their programming is actually a recontextualizing of music not originally intended for an audience of children. They have released three “Songs from Inside the Radio” CD compilations of rare Greasy Kid Stuff hits for Confidential Recordings.

Greasy Kid Stuff airs Sundays, from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. Belinda, Hova, and DJ Georgia (formerly DJ Wah Wah) spin Greasy Kid Stuff dance parties all over Portland — look for one near you!

The Bottom Forty


Sunday 8pm - 10pm
 

 
The Bottom Forty is a weekly two hour 'non-denominational' radio program hosted by Greg Glover on 94/7fm (www.947.fm). It's here that the likes of: The Replacements, Brian Eno, Hank Williams Sr., The Books, Charlie Parker, Talking Heads, Gomez, Kraftwerk, The Clash and others sound just fine....side....by.....side.

The Bottom Forty began as a magazine founded by Greg while attending college in Tampa, FL circa 1993. Greg wrote most of the features (Afghan Whigs, Flaming Lips, Alice Donut, Poster Children etc), sold all of the advertsing and published the tiny publication. The name comes courtesy of Greg's old pal, Doug Belew, who told him about a buddy who had a show, magazine or idea for either/both by the same name.
