It’s become an almost universal shorthand for Portland, Oregon: “PDX,” the abbreviation for the Portland International Airport. And while I’m sure it’s a fine airport and all that, the crew from the Big Trip 2006 flew through Seattle, since the flights were much cheaper from the East Coast.
You’d think there would be a KPDX radio somewhere along the way here, but no – that fine call belongs to the local My Network TV (ex-UPN, ex-Fox) station. So you’ll have to content yourself with everything else on the “PDX” FM dial, with a nice complete run from KBVM to KVMX in this week’s update.
