12/5 KBOO Happy Hour Listening Tour


I'd like to invite you and all KPOJ supporters to a "Happy Hour Listening Tour" at the KBOO studios, next Wednesday, December 5th, between 4:00 - 6:00 pm. KBOO is located at 20 SE 8th Ave.

Please join us and listen to Democracy Now!, watch our all-volunteer news team create the evening news, meet other volunteers who produce the M-F morning Public Affairs programming, staff who keep the doors open and provide public radio production training, and our board who oversee the KBOO Foundation. I'm sure some of our diverse, music show hosts will be on hand as well.

Enjoy refreshments and the chance to meet your community radio station - up close and personal. If we can't convince you to throw your support for progressive radio in our direction, then perhaps there is a way for KBOO to support your efforts to keep a diversity of voices and choices on the airwaves.

KBOO is a "community supporting" radio station, and here to serve the under-served, which progressive talk radio now could now be considered to be. It would be great to meet you, and other KPOJ listeners and supporters. Feel free to send this out to your mailing list, we look forward to welcoming all of you with open arms.

Automagic Archiving is Down


Dear programmers and listeners -

Automagic Archiving is down. The software is in beta and, may well be responsible for the website's recent downtime. So, for the mean time, the archiving is turned off.

What does this mean for you?

If you're a listener, the audio may take a bit longer to be posted on the website. 

If you're a programmer, the audio won't be posted automatically. If you want your time-shifted listeners to be able to listen, please record and post your audio.

We hope that automagic archiving can come back very soon.

Yours, vj

Faith Organizations join with the Northwest Fair Trade Coalition to host a Fair Trade Holiday Market Series for ethical holiday shopping

Northwest Fair Trade Coalition launches a series of fair trade holiday markets with Portland’s top social justice congregations highlighting ethical and fairly traded products for the holidays.

11/16 We're Not Broke

Alliance for Democracy has arranged a screening of We're Not Broke at the First Unitarian Church on Friday, Nov 16th at 7 PM.

America is in the grip of a societal economic panic. Lawmakers cry “We’re Broke!” as they slash budgets, lay off schoolteachers, police, and firefighters, crumbling our country’s social fabric and leaving many Americans scrambling to survive. Meanwhile, multibillion-dollar American corporations like Exxon, Google and Bank of America are making record profits. And while the deficit climbs and the cuts go deeper, these corporations—with intimate ties to our political leaders—are concealing colossal profits overseas to avoid paying U.S. income tax.

11/8 Beyond Judy Blume
