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!

Portland Drinking Water Threat

Recovery Zone
program date: 
Wed, 01/02/2008

On the Jan. 3rd, Recovery Zone host Stephanie Potter speaks with Regna Merritt from Oregon Wild and Floy Jones from Friends of the Reservoirs who are working to protect Bull Run and Portland's water system. Recent federal rulings mandate hundreds of millions of dollars to be paid to corporations to "purify" our water.  The activists counter that our present system is already so effective and "sweetly low-tech" that it could be coming from some very green future.

Happy New Year from the KBOO Evening News Team.  2008 marks KBOO's 40th anniversary, and in honor of the occasion, we've been digging through the KBOO archives, which are filled with recordings from KBOO's 40 years of radical radio.  Throughout the coming year, you will have the opportunity to hear more recordings from the KBOO archives, as we attempt to restore some of the older pieces from delicate reel-to-reel tapes.

And tonight, for the next hour, we'd like to present some excerpts of a few of these recordings.
