This interview is part of our weekly series, “Get to Know Your DJs.” It all begins in Los Angeles, California, where a skinny young rock ‘n’ roll singer struggled to get his music heard on the radio. Rodney Bingenheimer was playing local bands on KROQ, and eventually KNAC came into the picture and promoted upcoming acts on their Pure Rock Local Show. Back then, radio DJs were treated as celebrities, and it meant a lot to get your band heard over the airwaves. Uncle Scotty hosts Radio Hot Tub on Fridays from 8 – 10 a.m. Yes, I was that skinny rock and roll singer, and after years of struggli ..read more

This interview is part of our new weekly series, “Get to Know Your DJs.” What inspired you become a DJ? Mix tapes were a huge passion of mine when I was growing up. I used to queue up for songs on the radio late nights and make mixes for crushes and friends. I started losing that later in adulthood when tapes, then CDs, and then free downloads all kind of went away for the most part. I started fixating on getting a DJ set-up to more or less listen to my records more actively, like a live mix tape by myself at home. Coincidentally, right after I got my set-up the way I wanted, I saw a Freefor ..read more

This interview is part of our new weekly series, “Get to Know Your DJs.” How did you first get involved with Freeform Portland? My old pal was one of the original founders of the station and invited me to participate. I’ve been involved off and on since 2017. What does Freeform Portland mean to you? Live, volunteer-driven, non-commercial radio is a rare breed these days. I’m a big advocate of keeping it alive and well, building community through the aural landscape, and playing eclectic tunes that fall outside of the mainstream. Freeform Portland is an incredibly imaginative group of humans ..read more

“It’s a Nice World to Visit”: Eight Years at Freeform Portland
Freeform Portland Blog
by Jeff Ross
3M ago
When Freeform Portland first broadcast eight years ago, at the beginning of April 2016, it changed the Portland radio landscape for the better. My first show was April 5 that year, and I’m happy I was part of the initial schedule. I chose “It’s a nice world to visit” as my radio show name because it reflects a less cynical nature. Over the years I’ve tried my best to honor that ideal. As circumstances in my personal life have changed, my show has moved to a few different days and time slots. You can hear it now every Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. Jeff Ross in the studio I’ve made a commitment t ..read more
