A teacher by day, by night Bobby Smith is an archivist, producer, and DJ. His Night School show on XRAY FM has served the Albina musician community since 2014. In partnership with Black-led 501(c)3 World Arts Foundation, Smith founded the Albina Music Trust – an initiative to amplify the legacy of elder Albina musicians through storytelling, performance, and releasing unissued soul and jazz records from Portland. He has been a contributing writer for Wax Poetics, Willamette Week, and Portland Mercury. An avid vinyl collector, Smith’s shelves contain a range of obscure recordings across myriad genres. “I collect stories,” claims Smith. “And if the music sounds nice then that’s good, too.”
