Kathy Foster is a pillar of the Portland music scene. She rose to prominence as the bassist for The Thermals, a now-defunct band. In recent years, she's switched to playing the drums in the punk group Hurry Up. In addition to her work as a musician, Foster is also a radio and live DJ in the Rose City.
In this special guest playlist created for Oregon Public Broadcasting, her eclectic taste as a curator is on full display. While the selections may be sonically broad, Foster highlights the songs that got her through the pandemic. After a brutal year, she just wants us to dance.
