88 Seconds: Chris Porterfield of Field Report



Every week, 88Nine talks to someone in the music scene about -- well, anything -- for a little less than a minute and a half. Even I don’t know what they’ll talk about. The questions inside the envelopes dictate everything. We have categories of questions for musicians, producers, journalists, DJ’s, promoters and fans. They’ll pick one envelope at random and answer the question for as long as they’d like. We edit it to 88 seconds.

From “strangest gig ever” to “what was your first concert?” or “favorite condiment," get a peek into the lives of the people who make, produce, promote and broadcast the great music you hear in Milwaukee.

Questions he picked:

“What’s the first song you ever wrote?”
