Broadcast hours will be approximately from Noon-10PM.


OCM is open to community licensees to provide support and assistance in the development of local noncommercial media in order to support and nurture strong independent stations throughout Oregon.


Currently, KSKQ in Ashland has committed to broadcasting the whole festival and stations KMUZ in Salem, KPOV in Bend, and KYAC-LPFM Mill City will be broadcasting part of the festival.

SATYRICON: MADNESS & GLORY by Smegma band member/film director Mike Lastra: a raucous wild romp on the glorious ugly beauty that was Satyricon, Portland's famous nightclub/birthplace for NW grunge, punk, hip-hop, and indie music.


Immediately afterwards, the 20 FT. Man will play: He is a massive, mechanical humanoid contraption that makes noise and music...see you in the mosh pit. Tix suggested $7 with no one turned away for lack of funds.



The Columbia Slough Watershed Council celebrates its thirteenth annual Explorando el Columbia Slough festival on Saturday, June 14th at Whitaker Ponds Nature Park from 1 to 5pm. "Explorando," as it is known, is a free bilingual event for the Latino community with tons of activities for the entire family.


Live music, folkloric dances, guided canoe trips, hands-on environmental activities, a rock climbing wall, and live birds and insects will all be available for festival attendees. Also, the 400+ people that gather each year for Explorando have the opportunity to connect with other members of the growing Latino community. Booths are set up with local resources in Spanish and English, to share other free recreation activities and tips for low-cost, sustainable lifestyles.


Join us for an amazing evening of music, dance, spoken word and political remix. Featuring David Rovics international folk artist singer/songwriter. This cultural event bridges the arts community with civic engagement.
