Jerry's Angry Kid.


As a blogger I have lots of influence. There are literally 35-45 people out there desperately waiting for me to tell them what's cool. With that influence comes tremendous pressure, which is why I rarely (if ever) share the bounty from my cool-hunting expeditions. But a few minutes ago I happened across a can't-miss cultural home run. It's W+K Radio, and outside of Mutt and Brandon Roy it's the coolest thing in Portland right now. The manager, Janice Grube, is smart, sexy and a one-time rock-star. And one of the DJs, Lee Jefferson Davis, sounds like a butter pecan cookie on air. The only wet towel of the bunch is A. Schafer (that's an alias, btw). Man, I thought I was angry this morning. A. Schafer sounds like he's fresh off a five-year stint in Gitmo.

Have you heard the show "message to pretty" or the interview with Dungen on WK Radio? That Matt guy has a way dreamy voice.
