World Have Your Say coming to Portland



The BBC radio program, World Have Your Say, is coming to Portland for two live broadcasts on March 22 and 23rd. They must really like Oregon to do two days worth of shows. Thursday's show will be at the gorgeous Bagdad Theater, a real nifty brewpub and Friday's will be at OPB's studio, the BBC's Oregon partner. Go here to find out the details. I'm trying to get a ticket for the Thursday show. Hopefully I’ll get in. If I do, I’ll post about it. Welcome to Oregon to our friends from across the pond and across the continent for that matter!

p.s: the only thin that I know about Oregon state is that there's no tax at all... so some people love to go for shopping there :)

selba Yeah, World Have Your Say has people call in from all over the world and express there opinion about whatever the topic is. The fact that the BBC would come all the way here is kinda amazing.

As for Oregon, yeah we have no sales tax... also, it rains a lot, we have the most breweries in the world, we’re very into recycling, bicycling, and environmental issues. One of the best things about Oregon is the natural beauty. Here you can visit the coast, the mountains, the desert, the high plains, rain forests and various rivers all in one state. We’re also the home of Nike and Columbia Sportswear. The Goonies was filmed here, which has many nice views of the Oregon Coast and The Hunted was shot in Portland so you see what our biggest city looks like. No place is perfect, but it is a very nice.

Selba said...

I like nike sport shoes but these days, most of them are made in China.

Sounds that Oregon is a very nice.... maybe you can show more about Oregon through pictures in your blog? :)

Don't forget, Oregon is the home of Dark Horse Comics. Now that's natural beauty!

Swinebread said...

It's only place in the country that the BBC feels safe enough....

Selba said...

Swinebread said...

I haven't decided yet... I'm worried about getting too personal

Selba said...

Oh... ic ic.. I guess you are those kind of "anonymous" bloggers. Uhmmm... does your family know that you are blogging?

Swinebread said...
