Meet Wayne Potter, the Producer and Host of Keeping Kurrent. He lives in Tigard, Oregon. He has lived in the Greater Portland, Oregon area for more than 40 years. He has produced Keeping Kurrent for the last 18 years.

Portland Area Musicians Raise Funds to affirm diversity and social justice
“WHILE ROME BURNS is a group of Portland-area musicians formed in response to recent social and political trends. Our mission is to leverage the power of music and community to support and affirm diversity and social justice in our neighborhoods, our communities and our world.
We donate our time and craft through an ongoing series of events, providing music and a forum for various projects and organizations that support tolerance - religious, ethnic, gender and sexual orientation/identity - and advocate the celebration of our differences. We reject the politics of exclusion and believe that sharing through music and community is a path to a richer, more empathetic world.”
