Highlife Special

With roots going back to the 1920's and drawing from a number of sources, Highlife was a prominent style of music for over 60 years in the English speaking countries of West Arica. Even though heard in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria , it was dominant in Ghana. Join me in wrapping up our Spring Membership drive on Thur. 4/4 from noon 'till 2 and enjoy 2 hours of great Ghanian Highlife. Included will be the music of E.T. Mensah, Nana Ampadu, the Ramblers Dance Band and many others.

Thank You Once in a Boo Moon Event Sponsors

Categories:

Once in a Boo Moon, held Saturday February 23rd at St. David of Wales Episcopal Church, was a huge success. Devoted KBOO fans listened to Henry & Moggy, The True Vine Ramblers, Don McLaren & His Fiddlin' Friends and Retta Christie & Her One Night Stand Band. The wonderful selection of desserts was a real crowd pleaser, and both the raffle and silent auction were well received.

We are extremely grateful to all our event sponsors for helping to make this musical evening such a solid fundraising event. Please support these businesses and tell them, “KBOO sent me!”

"Why Civil Resistance Works: The Strategic Logic of Nonviolent Conflict."

Categories:

On Monday, March 4, 2013,  from 8-9 AM (PST) More Talk Radio hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Erica Chenoweth, co-author with Maria Stephan of "Why Civil Resistance Works: The Strategic Logic of Nonviolent Conflict."

Erica Chenoweth and Maria Stephan maintain that successful nonviolent resistance ushers in more durable and internally peaceful democracies, which are less likely to regress into civil war. They debunk the myth that violence occurs because of structural and environmental factors and that it is necessary to achieve certain political goals. Instead, they say violent insurgency is rarely justifiable on strategic grounds.
