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!

Thu, 01/03/2008

Host Per Fagereng interviews Conn Hallinan, columnist for Foreign Policy In Focus, about two of his recent articles.
In "Death at a Distance: The U.S. Air War," Hallinan says "an enormous intensification of U.S. bombardments" in Iraq and Afghanistan entails an "increasing number of civilian casualties ... and the growing role of pilot-less killers in the conflict."
    His most recent piece is "The Surge: Illusion and Reality," which argues that a decrease in attacks on U.S. troops is more the result of political decisions by the U.S. government and Iraqi groups than the result of more U.S. troops in Iraq.
