KBOO's Book and Record Sale returns! Saturday, September 28th, 9 am - 4 pm

Categories:

KBOO is getting ready for our annual Used Book and Record Sale on Saturday, September 28th, at the Musician’s Union Hall-325 NE 20th (1/2 block south of Sandy Blvd.). The sale starts at 9 AM and goes until 4 PM. Not only will there be fabulous books, cds, vinyl, and more to grab at ridiculously low prices, there will be music from KBOO deejays spinning live, baked goods, and all manner of madcap fun during this great community event!

Meanwhile, do us (and yourself) a favor -- clear out those books, comics, dvds, vhs tapes, lps & cds collecting dust around your domicile and bring them to the station (20 SE 8th) during business hours. If you have a larger donation call 503-231-8032 ext. 213 to arrange a pick-up.

Volunteer Spotlight on Shay Wright and Chris Andreae

Shay Wright

Shay has been a big part of KBOO's news and outreach teams since since getting involved with KBOO in 2010. After taking classes in audio production, she remembers her first job as a volunteer was recording a story about logging in Eastern Oregon, to be aired during the next day's evening news broadcast.

Does This Sound Familiar?

Orange is the New

On the 19 August 2013 Old Mole Variety Hour, Iven Hale and I discuss the Netflix series Orange is the New Black, about life in a women's minimum security Federal prison. Developed by Jenji Kohan, known for having created the Showtime series Weeds, Orange is the New Black is based on a memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman, though the show makes a number of changes from the book. Like Kerman, Piper Chapman, played by Taylor Schilling, is a college-educated white woman incarcerated for having transported drug money for her lover ten years before she was convicted and sentenced to a year in a women's prison. Hijinks ensue.
