About Randi Kirshbaum

Email: randi@wpor.com

I’ve been on the radio playing rock 'n' roll for my entire career, but I LOVE country music and am attracted to all things southwestern!

I played rock in Minneapolis (my hometown), Baltimore, Washington DC, and Boston. I've even played it here in Portland for the past 29 years, but I’ve always listened to country music for fun.

I LOVE Toby Keith. Once my young daughter meet him and he patted her head and called her “sweetie”. I didn’t let her wash her hair for a week.
