Who: Larry Portelance
Where: Abbotsford, Coast Salish Territory
About: A history major and media/communications minor who likes things not neccessarily about moose, mountains or mounties. I like the cool middle road approach to things one can still enjoy for under ten bucks. It’s always approached by knowing we know nothing until we have a listen!

Feb 2009 - Nathan John Moes has me on his program called Pop Music From Around Here. I came in with a pile of CDs from all the east coast indie pop performers I saw live at the Capital Bar in Fredericton, NB. (I worked in NB for three summers in a row at this point!)
Early-March 2009 - I undergo the rigorous CIVL Radio training regime and produce my demo.
