Kick Out The Jams

I suppose it’s time to find a replacement for the “ON AIR” graphic on the website. The final stream of WOXY ended without a wimper, but a little Public Enemy, MC5, a few beers and some firm hugs.

But all was not sad. Spirits were positive and hopeful.

Add to the mix a the man who could give Moleskins a run for the money paid visit.

Draplin [ official DDC website ] soaks up the WiFi in the Lounge

Fresh on the 26th day of his 8 week 8 city tour, he brought stories from the American Sign Museum in my backyard (a place I am ashamed to say I have yet to visit), along with other tales of travel, Portland, and the finer things in life – like high thread-count sheets.

Backstory: My first (virtual) encounter with this hulking lumberjack of a guy (sadly bears, he’s on a wife hunt) was his most excellent Gocco print at the Wurst Gallery. (Prints still available and exceedingly reasonable).

Nice to attach a handshake to the fine vector art.

We gathered a group from the radio station, and along with Mr. Draplin, extended the conversation over tasty foods at a groovy restaurant (in a neighborhood where you could buy 5 lofts for the price of 1 in a more magnetic city).

Good times.

UPDATE: The good news is, thanks to LaLa, WOXY rocks on.

    After following the growth and development of Woxy on your site for some time now, I feel genuinely sad to see it go. Many times, it was the only musical refuge I had while at work.
