I've been involved with KBOO for more than half my life - definitely the better half.
Everyone thinks they're interesting, and I'm no exception!

Been a member of KBOO since September 1987... yikes!
TAKIMBA has been in/on Radio for over a decade and Djing for longer. Spending most of his free time traveling the globe & collecting audio gems along the way he has assembled one of the most eclectic collections ever known. KBOO is one of the last places where WE can still hear and play no corporate music and news that matters!! Radio does not have to come with commercials or an agenda. We like to call it "The Best Music you've Never Heard"
I have been volunteering at KBOO since 2003. I started out in the KBOO Youth Collective, and went on to help in the News Department, Live music mixology, and teaching. Currently I co-host Hypnophobia Radio, on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month from 3-6am. I also teach audio classes to new volunteers.
Community dialogue is important. At 8am every Thursday Voices from the Edge lends a KBOO microphone to informed guests you might not hear anywhere else. With an hour to invest, the call-in format engages listeners in meaningful conversations about crucial issues like racial disparity, government accountability, environmental justice and politics on local, state and national levels. Join lively discussions about concerns that are important to you and our community. Together we’ll make Oregon and our nation a better place for a larger number of those living here.
