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!

The Hammerskin Nation, a neo-Nazi skinhead organization, aims to attract hundreds of hardcore racists to the group's twentieth-anniversary celebration, to be held from today until Sunday somewhere in the greater Portland area. The group has not publicized the location of the event.

The Hammerskins, began life in 1987 as the Confederate Hammerskins.  The group was founded in Dallas, TX gang specializing in violence against Jewish people and people of color, sexual minorities, as well as activists.

The Hammerskin Nation--a masthead for Hammerskin racist skinhead crews--has since gone national, and later international, with their bigoted agenda.
