Ricardo Wang is so deep in the world of Experimental Music that he majored in it in college. But not merely limited to thinking about it, for over 20 years he has hosted a radio program – What’s This Called? – that focuses on recorded and live performances by artists that you cannot hear on any other radio program, and his career in radio is even longer than that. Add to it that he helped found The Olympia Experimental Music Festival, and has been active in the music scene over the years, he is a key Pacific Northwest figure, and someone with plenty of stories to tell.
Joine us on the 10th of June for a candid conversation, where we talk about radio art, experimental music, family, and the other things that drive us as creative beings in this world. And, when you’re not listening to Mid-Valley Mutations on KMUZ, check out his program – What’s This Called? It is very much the inspiration for this current format, and it is a real treat to have him on our program.
