Bread & Roses Show January 9, 2009 ~ Two Women Writers: Keepers of History

I'll be interviewing two local women writers, Anjala Ehelebe author of Images of America: Portland's Woodlawn Neighborhood and Jewel Lansing author of My Montana: A History and Memoir - 1930-1950.  Anjala takes us through a historic accounting of the Woodlawn neighborhood while Jewel shares with us what life was like growing up in rural Montana.  Both women are true "Keepers of History" and during this segment of Bread & Roses, you’ll hear the process each one went through in writing and publishing their work along with a live reading.
 
Mark your calendar for January 9, 2009 at 6pmPST as I'll be the host of another segment of Bread & Roses. You can also listen online at http://www.kboo.fm/.
 
Cheers ~ Bridget B.
 

Volunteer Updates: Bad weather contingency plans and events in January

Categories:

Many thanks to intrepid volunteers who are making it into KBOO through all manner of weather!  If you are unable to make it to a volunteer shift, please call and let us know as soon as you are able, so we can try to cover. For situations involving on-air cancellations during business hours, please call the front desk (503-231-8032) and ask to speak directly with Chris Merrick or myself.  If neither are available, please ask for any staff person.  For very time sensitive urgent situations like this, it is important not to rely on voicemail or email, but to speak with a staff member directly. If it is after hours, and you are unable to make it in for an on-air shift, please call the air room (503-231-8187), and ask for emergency contact information for Chris Merrick or myself. 

KBOO's starting off 2009 with a volunteer appreciation party! We would love for all volunteers to join us in a very special afternoon of celebration, honoring the amazing work you do to make KBOO the great community radio station it is.

The appreciation party will be at Liberty Hall, 311 N. Ivy, on Saturday, January 10th, 1 - 4 PM.  Please check kboo.fm/volunteer for up to date details.

About Craig Burk

Categories:

Craig Burk began hosting shows on KBOO in June 2007. His very eclectic approach to radio programming reflects more than 25 years of presenting his own uncompromising music in New York City, Europe, and Portland.

The Dharma Wheel Stops Turning

For the past 20+ years, I have had the privilege and honor of hosting the Dharma Wheel here at KBOO. I hope It has been a musical soundtrack of our times, sharing music that rings with political and spiritual truth. 

It is an amazing and perhaps synchronistic coincidence that I chose to end the show and then Obama wins the election.  The timing couldnt be more perfect. So to all of you who have supported me over the years: listeners who have now become friends,  listeners who contributed during pledge drives, businesses like Precision Glass and Dave who were underwriters for a long time, the amazing listeners who supported me emotionally, spiritually and financially when I was sick a few years ago and finally, all the amazing singers/songwriters and musicians who have appeared live on the show--thank you for sharing in what I tried to create each week thru the air waves. 

I am ending the Dharma Wheel but not leaving KBOO.  I may show up with some music specials during pledge drives and will continue doing interviews on public affairs shows from time to time. The reason is pretty simple in the long run--sometimes you have to let go of something in order for something new to emerge. One door closes and another opens.

Make your own economic incentive
