Sam Mowry: CC#168 Live radio theater, what a concept

10/18/2018
More
Changing things up a little bit, as we do now and then, and on this episode of OMN’s Coffeeshop Conversations…I should tell you, right here at World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th & Gilsan…I’ll be talking with Sam Mowry about a special kind of theater…live radio theater. Say what? You’ll find out. If Sam’s voice sounds familiar, it’s because you’ve heard him on many commercials, but it’s radio drama that’s his greatest love. His Willamette Radio Workshop has a bunch of show coming up soon...

More
Hope you like the new theme music. It’s called “Ghost Jazz.” Thanks to Auditory Sculpture and Derek Sims for that. And thanks to World Cup Coffee & Tea at NW 18th & Glisan… which is where we do these OMN Coffeeshop Conversations. Very very happy to have been able to catch the great drummer Tony Coleman before he’s off to some other part of the world. Tony lives in Portland but he was the drummer in B.B. King’s band for 32 years. Imagine that. How good do you have to be to keep that gig! He...

Here we are at World Cup Coffee & Tea at NW 18th & Glisan for another OMN Coffeeshop Conversation. We’ve got Bob Howard, the CEO of Artichoke Music, an institution around here. As you may know, they moved out of their home for decades on Hawthorne Boulevard to a new place on Powell. What’s different? What’s the same? How has the move been for them? What’s in their future? And how to I play this goddamned ukulele? Ok, I’m not going to ask, but if I really wanted to know, I could learn at...

Davis Rogan Final

Remember the David Simon HBO series Treme? The one based in New Orleans? And the character Davis McAlary? You know, the guy who got fired from WWOZ for sacrificing a chicken in a Voodoo ceremony while on the air? The guy who was kinduva semi-lovable asshole? Well that character was based on a real person who actually had a hand in creating that character (played by Steve Zahn) and also helping create some of the music in the series. His real name is Davis Rogan who is from New Orleans, but...

Hello sweltering Summer fans, it’s nice and cool in the cupping room here at World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th & Glisan. I’m Tom D’Antoni, your genial host. You know, music today is so diverse, it’s hard to tell which kind is more popular than another. Used to be Rock, used to be Indie, but today due to the Soul Music revival of the past few years, you can find just as much funky music and you can any other kind. One of the leaders in that category is here with me. It’s keyboardist,...

Glad to be back in the cupping room here at World Cup Coffee and Tea for another OMN Coffeeshop Conversation. Also very glad to bring back Lloyd Jones, who has been bringing us Blues and Soul since dinosaurs ruled the earth. He was last in here in way back in June of 2015…we’ve been doing these things for a while now, huh? Whether he’s singing, guitar slinging or playing Delta Blues on his trusty Martin acoustic guitar, he’s one of the guardians of the groove. He’s been to Europe again, and...

Happy to be back in the brand new grand newly re-decorated World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan for OMN Coffeeshop Conversation #156. You know, educating our kids is a big enough task but it doesn’t help things when schools don’t teach music as part of the regular curriculum. When that happens, private organizations have to step in. One of those is the Youth Music Project, which is much more than just a project, it’s a fully operating juggernaut with a big facility in West Linn....

World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan has been closed for over a week for renovations, but by the time you hear this it’ll be open again. While they were closed I thought it would be a good idea to call upon OMN’s National Editor, Art Levine and find out what’s going on with him. He’s in Washington, D.C. so we’re Skyping this one. He hasn’t been writing for us very much lately because he has been working on his new book, Mental Health, Inc. “How corruption, lax oversight and failed...
