Tirebiter Tunes at KPOV 106.7FM Community Radio in Bend, OR, Sundays at 6 pm PST/PDT.

Strange how the music flows....I have one cousin, my age exactly, who I never knew well because of distance.  Lo and behold I find out he's running a venue in Bend, Oregon (now for sale and rented to others); then next thing I know he's a DJ (again).  And, yes, genes have commanding power.  We view music in much the same way; preferring everything Americana-ish and Folk-ish, and Classic Rock-ish (and more.)  He plays, natch, and turns out we know many of the same artists.  So if you want to add a DJ to your list, send it to Creig Tirebiter (a little anonymized, that name) at 1639 NW Steidl Road, Bend, Oregon 97701 and he'll add it to his station library and work it in if he can.  Mention Nancy and LilFest, of course, and listen to the station on the web too.

Bend is gorgeous, if you don't know it, and the Sisters Festival is very close too.  Portland isn't too far; neither is Hood River.  What's not to like about touring Oregon?  Maybe son Chip will set up a street team...

If there's a chance I have multiple copies of your CD, I sent it to him already....I forwarded all my dupes to KPOV.
