RIP Expressway To Yr Skull



The time has finally come to retire the name Expressway To Yr Skull in the context of this podcast - I started using it when I was doing a college radio show with a friend back in my early twenties & almost a decade later, I definitely feel like I've outgrown that particular moniker. Next weekend, I start a new weekly two-hour show at Freeform Portland & it seemed like an opportune time to change things up, so going forward, y'all can look forward to weekly radio dispatches from me under the show name Futures & Pasts. Hi.

Catch me on the air live on Saturday nights from 8-10pm PST in the Portland city limits at KFFP 90.3FM, or stream online from the Freeform Portland site wherever you are. Shows will continue to be posted after the fact for your streaming/downloading pleasure & to that end, I'll be migrating to a new blog (or rather, the Tumblr I've been using for a few months, with a fancy new domain name). This blog will stay up as a historical document & musical archive, but update your bookmarks & go to the Futures & Pasts site for all new content.

Feel free to drop me a line at ripitupstartagain[at]gmail[dot]com to stay in touch, send me music, say hey, etc.

xo, e.

Human Switchboard

















Well, it's official: staring in April, I'm going to be back on real radio airwaves again after a three-year hiatus (and on a weekly basis, at that), thanks to the low-power FM wonder that is Freeform Portland. Everything will still be archived digitally, but you'll also have the ability to stream in real-time, or tune in on an actual radio if you're fortunate enough to live in Portland. I'm also going to be changing the name of the show when that happens, because it's just time. Sit tight; more details forthcoming.
