Tom D’Antoni is a venerable Oregon reporter and founding editor-in-chief of the in-print and online magazine, Oregon Music News. Tom is also the voice and free-wheeling disc jockey behind the KMHD radio program on Friday nights, “I Like It Like That,” where he spins music and musician interviews in the style of a master craftsman, with a dedicated passion for the music – and the stories behind the musicians.

Tom has been following the musical adventures of Kate & Steve for years. Starting with his OPB Artbeat segments (“Artichoke as a Love Story,” followed by OPB’s ghost story by Jeff Douglas of the song “Travis John” that preceded KC Cowan’s segment on the use of “Travis John” for choreographer Josie Moseley’s “Quiet Pieces” staged for Oregon Ballet Theater and danced by Patrick Kilbane. Tom stayed hot on the trail and reported again when Kate & Steve changed tracks to live on the road and tour with a fleet of ukes to convert the uninitiated of America to the joys of playing music.

When Tom first heard that Kate & Steve were coming home to Portland to stay, he texted to ask, “where is the parade going to be?” Since then, Tom has interviewed Kate & Steve twice – one in the early morning hours during home reconstruction a week before moving back, and the other more recent radio interview with Kate solo in “Coffeeshop Conversation #38“.

Tom D’Antoni covers a lot of ground with his provocative line of questions and friendly interest, and we appreciate his help in giving you a glimpse into the life and times – past, present and future – of Kate & Steve, their new band “The Portlanders” and an inside look at life, the people and the music they make from Portland, Oregon.

Special thanks to the one and only Tom D’Antoni, friend and reporter extraordinaire.

Your comments are very welcome. Thanks for reading!
