In Case You Missed It: Viva Las Vegas on OPB

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Wed, Dec 9, 2009 at 11:10 AM

Portland stripper/author/musician Viva Las Vegas was interviewed by Geoff Norcross on OPB yesterday to promote her memoir Magic Gardens—we ran an excerpt back in August. It's a quick listen that touches on Portland's particular brand of "humble" strip joints, Viva's battle against breast cancer (which she wrote about extensively in the Portland Monthly), and at the end Geoff even outs her real name. Listen here.
