Jim Brunberg: Coffeeshop Conversation #73 His music, venues and a podcast with his daughters

By TOM D'ANTONI // One of the busiest guys in town sits down for a few.

Welcome back to the Coffeeshop…World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan in Portland and another OMN Coffeeshop Conversation.

Today Jim Brunberg, musician, music venue owner and now a podcaster with his twin seven-year-old daughters Vern and Dana. You know him from his music, from being one of the founders of Mississippi Studios and Revolution Hall.

He’s a busy guy and we’re glad he took time to be here. His family podcast is called Roam Schooled, as he puts it, “a program about what happens when a father and his twin daughters put away their devices and go in search of answers.” 

We’ll find out all about that and where they’ve been, about the evolution of Mississippi studios which he helped build with his bare hands, and why on earth a person would start a major new venue! 

The tune at the end features Jim and Ben Landsverk as Wonderly.

Let’s meet Jim Brunberg:
