On Radically Loving the World


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.

Programming Volunteer Spotlight: DON MERRILL

Don Merrill is a relatively new volunteer here at KBOO, and has been on the air mostly as a news reporter. However, he’s also taken it upon himself to do a web only show called “The Talk”, where he interviews some of the more famous people who request air time on KBOO, as well as community advocates, authors, and anyone he feels like talking to!  I appreciate his willingness to jump into the studio with anyone, and his ability to create interesting and insightful audio.  Here is an interview I did with Don in October, 2012.

Introduce yourself...

 *Hi, people.  My name is Don Merrill and I do interviews.

What brought you to KBOO?

*I came to KBOO because I have always liked community based anything.
