News & Cultural Programming at KBOO

KBOO News | List of Public Affairs shows on KBOO

KBOO community radio has been bringing diverse communities together for forty years.  We offer over twenty hours per day of programs that are produced locally by volunteer community members.  This is critical for having local voices on the airwaves at a time when media ownership is consolidating and the remaining local entities turn to syndicated programs.  Furthermore we offer genuine diversity.  In a city that is over three-quarters white, we offer programming by and for Asian, African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and those from many other backgrounds.  We put youth (with a part-time youth coordinator assisting), veterans, and the disabled on the air.  And we bring these communities together on and off the air!

Theater Review: "Man to Man"

program date: 
Sun, 07/20/2008

Theater Moles Denise Morris and Tamara  Wallace describe "Man to Man," a play by German playwright Manfred Karge:

An old man retells his life: from carefree girl to crane operator, from young bride to soldier, from femme fatale to farm lad; Man to Man is an epic story of identity-switching in the fight for survival. Inanimate objects from the sparse set take on purpose as chairs become the bones of a finished meal or body of a dean man and lamps transform into other characters. This one-woman show that spans 50 years and includes a cast of more than 20, aged 8 to 80, is an adventure in the power of story and personal transformation.

The play runs through August 31 at Hipbone Studio.
