Live Wire With Jason Isbell, Mk Asante, David Bronner, & More! says
Live Wire Radio is Portland’s own nationally syndicated radio variety show. If you haven’t been to a Live Wire show before, here’s what you’re in for: it’s a bold, sometimes unusual, sometimes-dangerous-but-always-delightful mix of music, conversation and comedy. With beer.

Join us at the next live show! Some of our guests will include:

David Bronner
You might think Dr. Bronner's Castille soap is just a great way to wash up while reading a label with gems like, "Wait! Arise to the stars above and thrill!," but due to CEO David Bronner's activism (he planted hemp in the DEA's front yard), the company is a forerunner in the fight for hemp legalization and against GMOs.

MK Asante
Bestselling author, filmmaker, professor and hip-hop artist MK Asante's wrote his award-winning memoir Buck in 2013. Now he's working on the film at Sundance, and has set much of it to music in Buck: The Original Book Soundtrack with help from people like Uzi and Faze Miyake.

Musical Guests:

Mighty Oaks
Like a tiny U.N. of indie folk music, Mighty Oaks brings together three men from three different countries to engage in three-part harmonies. Their latest record is Howl.

Jason Isbell
Former Drive-By Truckers members Jason Isbell's last performance on Austin City Limits was so compelling that they released a DVD of his full 15-song set in November, so missing him live might lead to a massive case of FOMO. His latest record is Southeastern.

More to be announced!
