Tonight's show was full of thought-provoking words and music! I hope you enjoyed the journey!
There was a special edition of the spoken word "open mic" segment featuring some of the wonderful contributors to the Kicked Out Anthology, as well as an interview with editor & visionary, Sassafras Lowery.

I highly recommend picking up a copy of the Anthology for you and a friend. Pick up a copy and drop it off at your local youth community centre/shelter/space. The Kicked Out Anthology was printed by Homofactus Press.

Eclectronic superfudge with a live performance by Graintable
Tune into KBOO this Tuesday night 3/2/10 for a live performance by GRAINTABLE. Hes been lighting up the Westcoast with his blend of electronic superfudge. Catch up with him about the new Chip Chop release, a few Portland shows and find out what goes on in the mind of the sonic scientist. It all starts at 8pm on Portlands own 90.7fm KBOO.
Emerging on the experimental electronic music scene in 2008, Graintable is quickly making a name for himself with melodically mutated hip hop beats and bass heavy bangers. Busting out MPC-style sample bashing live sets, Graintable creates heavy grooves laden with high energy sound scapes that will keep repeating in your head for days. Graintable released his first track on RUNRIOT’s Motion Sickness compilation in ‘09 and is currently working on more synthed out brain stomping tracks to rip through portable music boxes and dance floors in 2010.
Beginning October 7th, KBOO began a trial period of 'The Thom Hartmann Show' from 4 - 5 pm weekdays. Click here to find out more about our trial period of airing Thom Hartmann - we want to hear your response!
