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!

Alternative economics: John Poling with Cascadia Hours Exchange

program date: 
Wed, 01/30/2008

We may use money to buy goods and services, but as John Poling, organizer with the Cascadia Hour Exchange, points out, money is not the only way, or even the best way to get what you want. He and others at the Cascadia Hour Exchange have formed a network where each person offers their skills, such as house painting, graphic design, child care, or even legal advice. Each one hour block of time given entitles members to exchange their services the skills and time of any other person in the network. Poling believes that relying on non-monetary exchange systems both strengthen local economies as well as create a deeper sense of community.
