The Beat Goes On: Sound Effect, Episode 122

Oct 21, 2017

This week on Sound Effect, our theme is "the beat goes on." We open with Karen Sakata, who has been running karaoke at Bush Garden for decades. Hip-hop artist Draze talks about about how his Seattle and Zimbabwean roots influence his music. Jennifer Wing heads to Bellingham to hear a band made up of musicians with developmental disabilities. We learn about a publicity stunt that involved dropping a piano from a helicopter. Ariel Van Cleave heads to Central Washington University to experience what it sounds like in an anechoic chamber. And finally, we meet a musician who continues to perform with his hardcore punk band, following a double lung transplant.

Sound Effect is your weekly tour of ideas, inspired by the place we live. The show is hosted by KNKX's Gabriel Spitzer
