On Saturday July 22nd bicyclist are meeting in Grant Park ( NE 33rd Ave & US Grant Pl from 11:30am to 3:30pm. This is a chance for bicyclist to talk to one another about the violent and threatening comments reported to bikeportland.org, the Mercury and the Willamette Week.
The nationally syndicated radio show, The Playhouse, and it's parent station Jammin 95.5 FM, are also holding an event that is open to the public in Grant Park between noon and 3:00pm. Almost all in the bicycling community agrees that the radio station should place the podcast of the morning show of July 13th back on it's Internet site, which they removed citing the sound of a can of "Rockstar energy drink being crushed" on the air is why the archive is not available. Rockstar, is a 100K sponsor of the show ... and for you that do not know Rockstar is owned by Micheal Savage's son.
We could really use a laptop that can get Internet in Grant Park. The reason for this is because we want to have a place where people can file FCC complaints against the radio station on line at out picnic. If any one has this ability please contact me.
More so please feel free to drop by and express your concerns to the bicyclist or the radio station. the organizers of the bicycle picnic are in the process of having out own fun events.
