Guess Who's Coming to Radio??!! on 04/04/13
we at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' are here again to honor the work of the little station doing big things! we are currently in our 45th year, and we wouldn't be here without the work of everyone helping to produce, create and present the programming you hear- and we ESPECIALLY would not be here without your support!
with that, we want to continue the spirit of what KBOO represents for us- a community resource through the arts, news and public affairs and events; and usually we present artists we feel represent this spirit. for this spring drive we will be honoring ancestor curtis mayfield. mr. mayfield's voice- a voice that is criminally underrated at this time- is extremely needed. we will explore his words and music through time, from his experience with the impressions to his solo works, as well as songs he has penned for several artists, including aretha franklin and mavis staples!
as curtis mayfield once said, we at KBOO will 'keep on pushing' in the name of community radio which speaks the needs to many communities. let us keep on for another 45 years!
