The KBOO Youth Collective was started to create and run The Underground — the public affairs show on youth issues. The Underground first aired on May 22, 2002, and has since covered a wide range of issues affecting American youth, including unconventional schools, leaving for college, punishment, science, activism, traveling, food, cabbots, and much much more. We have regular pieces from the Pulse of Portland Music Project, NAYA, and the IRCO Stem Program.
We also have a 2 hour youth music show, Youth Randomonium, which is a showcase for Portland's incredible local youth talent. We are on the air the 4th Friday of each month from 10pm to Midnight. Send us your recordings, and we'll play them!
We are looking for people under 21 who would like to get involved in youth community radio as Reporters, Board Operators, Talent Scouts, and more!
Email email@example.com or call Erin Yanke at (503) 231-8032 x221 to get involved!
The KBOO Youth Collective did a workshop at the Hillsdale Library for their Teen Council, and taught recording skills. They produced a piece for the March, 2013 episode of The Underground. The theme for the show was moods, and the Teen Council shared books they enjoyed, and what moods they portrayed.
