You might have noticed that both KOPB and KMHD are in the midst of the fall fundraisers. Just wanted to remind you if you need to join or renew your support for public radio in Portland. Though OBP is now providing management and facilities for KMHD, memberships - and funds that are raised - are separate. I know it's a difficult week to listen to the constant entreaties for your support, but it will be over soon.
Speaking of fundraising . . . the Cascade Blues Association does a great job of supporting the blues music community in Portland and the Northwest. The are holding a fundraiser today from 4 - 10 pm at The Refectory (1618 NE 122nd) with sets by Kevin Selfe and the Tornadoes, the Robbie Laws Trio, Jimmy Lloyd Rea & the Switchmasters with special guests, among others . . . . $10 minimum donation goes to supporting the CBA.
