Don Manning Memorial Service Information

The  Memorial for Don Manning, long time KBOO jazz host, will take place this  Sunday September 21st, at Multnomah Arts Center, 7688 SW Capital Highway from  2:30 - 4:30 pm.

A jazz trio with Lee Reinoehl, piano, Nick Gefroh, drums, and unnamed bass player will play, and NIck says jazz musicians are invited to "bring their axes!" to honor Don's memory.

Don's family hopes the community will turn out and "make this a real sendoff for Don."

Don Manning hosted "Bebop Spoken Here" for more than 25 years on KBOO. He was a jazz drummer and loved to interview his Bebop heroes on the air.

Disabled? Yes and No

Categories:

Hi. I am Grace Eagle Reed and I am the host for Disability Awareness. My guest and I broadcast on the 4th Monday of the month at 11am. I am 70 years old and have MS (Multiple Sclerosis). I have had MS since age 35 so have been disabled for a long time. I am a survivor in a way as my condition is in remittance for now. All I have to do to activate it is get overworked, stressed, overly anxious, overly weary, etc. Kinds funny really as there is 'incoming' stress all the time. Because I am disabled I am also low income and when my buggy broke down at the tune of $500 that was stress! The point is that I have had to learn how to feed into my disability when appropriate and when to just ignore that which is not that important.

Dear listeners:
When using the contact form, please put your email in the body of your message. For the past few days we have been getting your emails, but there is no contact information, which hinders greatly our ability to respond.

Matt from some record store, the person who "must know" what a song was on Wednesday night's Ditch Digger Radio, and the person who wanted information on the What The Festival are a few examples of people that I would love to respond to, but cannot.

Please, don't let this happen to you, and put your email in the message. We will work on clearing this up as soon as possible.

Thanks for your understanding

On Radically Loving the World

Hear this as audio with music

 Let me ask what might seem a very naïve question:  Why are we so willing to trash the world we live in?  Or to be a little less naïve, Why do we allow those who govern our world to destroy, pollute, and enslave the earth and all that lives? 

Happy Birthday to KBOO! We're releasing a 7"!

KBOO Community Radio was born in June, 1968; a healthy 10 watt baby that would eventually grow up to change the idea of what radio could be: who is on the air, what kind of content is provided to listeners, and how radio waves are valued.
KBOO was the local outlet for the Listener Supported Radio Movement, led in part nationally by Lorenzo  Milam, and locally by a group of Portlanders who wanted to hear classical music on the radio.  In 1968 we went on the air, and provided not only the music and cultural programming you couldn't hear anywhere else on the dial, but coverage of the burgeoning protests against imperialistic wars and for racial equality, women's rights and other social justice movements of the time.
