I had a good time last night at the Blues Power benefit concert for Tom Wendt. It was inspiring to see how many people have been touched by a long-time KBOO DJ. Personally, if not for KBOO, I would not have learned to listen to and enjoy non-pop music like blues and bluegrass.
Tonight is the first meeting that I'll chair as President of the KBOO Foundation Board of Directors. The agenda is posted here: kboo.fm/node/11163.
If anyone is reading this, one topic I'm interested in discussing is how do members feel about the juxtaposition of our new (well-done in my opinion) underwriter announcements with the "non-commercial" aspect of KBOO? Our underwriter spots fit the definition of non-commercial that will satisfy the FCC and maintain our non-profit status. And we can put the sponsor donations to good use. But I know that when NPR started having their environmental programs sponsored by ADM, I looked askance.
