KINK's Radio-A-Thon KINK/Portland held a successful fund drive for the Union Gospel Mission on Thursday, November 20, during an all-day on-air Radio-A-Thon. The event was broadcast live from the Bing Lounge. This year the station raised $103,000, which will provide 53,000 meals.
Promotions Director Shannon Sunderen said, "Another great event in the books to show the power of radio and community. The KINK Community can do amazing things."
The Union Gospel Mission was founded in 1927 when forty area churches bonded together to minister to the homeless on the streets of Portland.

Dylan Plays Private Show Bob Dylan superfan Fredrik Wikingsson got the thrill of a lifetime on Sunday afternoon when Dylan played a private concert just for him at Philadelphia's Academy of Music. The one-man concert was part of an ongoing Swedish film series called Experiment Ensam (Experiment Alone), where people experience things completely alone that are usually meant for large crowds. Dylan and his band chose to play Buddy Holly's "Heartbeat," Fats Domino's "Blueberry Hill," Chuck Willis' "It's Too Late (She's Gone)" and another undisclosed blues song. "I was smiling so much it was like I was on ecstasy," Wikingsson told Rolling Stone of the experience. "My jaw hurt for hours afterwards because I couldn't stop smiling." The private Dylan show was filmed by eight cameras, and a 15-minute documentary of the event will hit YouTube on December 15.
