On Monday, July 6, KBOO, Portland’s progressive radio voice, will feature Oregon trustees Norm Diamond and Nathan Moore in conversation on the Old Mole Variety Hour from 9-10 a.m.

Labor educator Diamond was a long-time host of the show. Moore is a member of the Eugene-based folk and roots band the Low Tide Drifters that will perform live during the broadcast.

“We talk about the power of music in reflecting and generating working class solidarity,” Diamond said, “and about the class and environmental sensibilities specifically in their music.”

The trustees also discuss an Oregon PNLH-sponsored event on the July 11 at Pier Park, Portland, to commemorate the 1934 police shootings of striking longshore workers.

Note that the July 6 program will stream live at kboo.fm and be available as a podcast.
