A Brief John Callahan Primer

If you don't know the story of JC, or the years have eroded from memory some of the finer details of the life and career of this gentle, sad and acutely funny Portlander, then we suggest you get out of the heat for a few minutes and check out two wonderful stories about him. The first, by Chris Lydgate and the second, Beth Slovic.

For 27 years, WW has been proud to be a home for John's cartoons. Here's another side of him. From the CD Purple Winos in the Rain
"Portland Girl"

Here's a review of his CD from then WW music editor Amy McCullough. (for some reason, there's something wrong with the recording on this review)

Here's a trailer from a Dutch documentary made about John a few years back. The film is as soulful as he was.
