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.
