Mbrascatu came to Portland Radio Project to play some music and answer some questions just a few weeks ago; check out it out here. See an acoustic version of the band on Monday nights at Piazza Italia; it’s small and popular, so be sure to make a reservation!


Inessa and Eric John Kaiser are unable to make it into the studio for our planned interview today, but of course, his music is still playing on Trixie Pop and available to you for a re-listen at any time!


Thankfully, the town of Monmouth ended its lengthy history of prohibition in 2002, and now you can now enjoy a glass of the good stuff at a live show by Eric, in celebration of his new CD, “Idaho.”
