Static + Distance is a radio program hosted by Joshua Justice airing bi-weekly on Freeform Portland. Pulling primarily from their record collection, the host pursues unspoken and hard to decipher themes (e.g. "music for a windy beach day" or "desert songs"). The tracks generally hail from the 60s and 70s and often fall within the general umbrella of jazz, soul or folk, but occasionally there's an auditory excursion into the worlds of ambient music or Brazilian psychedelic, for example. The unifying connection is a deep love and appreciation for music that moves the listener. You'll hear heartbreakers, burners, shakers, bummers and everything in between.
Tune in to Static + Distance every other Sunday morning, 10 am to noon on Freeform Portland, a low-power nonprofit, independent, community-driven radio station. Broadcasting live at KFFP-LP 90.3 FM, KFFD-LP 98.3 FM & KYQT-LP 101.5 FM in the Portland metro area, and streaming online at freeformportland.org/listen. This episode aired on 3/18/22.
