I am hesitantly thrilled to announce that the OPB, Oregon Experience series has created a program called "Portland Noir," examining the seedy days of yore. Since I am either seedy enough, or ancient enough, I was invited to add my thoughts on the workings of Portland's old waterfront.
There will be a screening of this program Friday, October 11th at 7 p.m. (the doors open at 5:30) at the McMenamin's Mission Theater Pub 1624 N.W. Glisan St. (The old longshoremen's hiring hall).
You are invited.
My hesitation comes from a certain uneasiness at seeing myself on a screen of any size.
