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!

Ubu Half Hour April Membership Drive Special

program: 
Ubu Hour
program date: 
Mon, 04/07/2008

The Ubu Half Hour Special: Whereas most programs have specials that are as long if not longer than the normal program, the Ubu Hour does things differently, by airing only half an hour this month. As a treat to the KBOO members, we will inflict half as much Ubu Hour insipidness and inanity on the listening public. Not only is it only half an hour long, but the Ubu 1/2-Hour contains no new radio theater, just some excerpts from previous shows (The Torturer's Apprentice and the rather notorious FCC Show, either of which can be obtained by calling 503 232-8818 or 1 877- 500-5266 by Friday Apr 11th)  as well as the usual begging and pleading for the money which this radio station needs.
