Other musical activities:
Over the years I've hosted radio shows on 3 community and 2 professional stations; written countless record and concert reviews for mainstream press and music zines in Seattle and Portland Maine. Played drums in three different groups (one rockabilly, one power pop, one novelty) and sang lounge tunes in a long-running Cabaret; booked bands for many different clubs in Portland and Seattle.
Hobbies / obsessions:
Outside of music, family and work, my attention is mostly on politics. History will have its way with Bush/Cheney, though that's small consolation for the damage they wrought in the 21st century.
