Toxic Hate and Guess Who's Coming to Radio

I find it easy to listen to the radio and applaud our DJs and radio producers for the good work they are doing: exposing truth, healing us from daily harshness through amazing music, and keeping the edge of education and uncomfortable radio balanced enough for us to learn from each other and further work towards making our racist and colonial power structures to fall.

City Of Women: Witch House

Tonight (Friday Morning) City of Women will feature Witchhouse and Goth with a set from Alice Automated to ring in the Samhain/Season of the Dead/Halloween times and stuff that reminds us of Nightmares.
Also, you will be hearing some L7 since they are coming to town on Monday. 

The River Signal Starts June First!

Our friends at the Steam Radio Syndicate, Galen, Brian, and Reid, are out in the world, getting The Channel Princess, a paddlewheel riverboat, to the Mississippi River. 
They'll be floating south down the river "America's Last Highway" for the summer, and creating amazing radio! We'll be broadcasting that radio, on a show called The Radio Signal every Monday from 7-8pm, starting on June 1st. 
Now here's a few more details, where they speak for themselves:

Don Manning Memorial Service Information

The  Memorial for Don Manning, long time KBOO jazz host, will take place this  Sunday September 21st, at Multnomah Arts Center, 7688 SW Capital Highway from  2:30 - 4:30 pm.

A jazz trio with Lee Reinoehl, piano, Nick Gefroh, drums, and unnamed bass player will play, and NIck says jazz musicians are invited to "bring their axes!" to honor Don's memory.

Don's family hopes the community will turn out and "make this a real sendoff for Don."

Don Manning hosted "Bebop Spoken Here" for more than 25 years on KBOO. He was a jazz drummer and loved to interview his Bebop heroes on the air.

You can listen to Nick Gefroh's on air tribute show at

Disabled? Yes and No


Hi. I am Grace Eagle Reed and I am the host for Disability Awareness. My guest and I broadcast on the 4th Monday of the month at 11am. I am 70 years old and have MS (Multiple Sclerosis). I have had MS since age 35 so have been disabled for a long time. I am a survivor in a way as my condition is in remittance for now. All I have to do to activate it is get overworked, stressed, overly anxious, overly weary, etc. Kinds funny really as there is 'incoming' stress all the time. Because I am disabled I am also low income and when my buggy broke down at the tune of $500 that was stress! The point is that I have had to learn how to feed into my disability when appropriate and when to just ignore that which is not that important.

When Contacting Us PLEASE Put Your Email in the Body of the Message


Dear listeners:
When using the contact form, please put your email in the body of your message. For the past few days we have been getting your emails, but there is no contact information, which hinders greatly our ability to respond.

Matt from some record store, the person who "must know" what a song was on Wednesday night's Ditch Digger Radio, and the person who wanted information on the What The Festival are a few examples of people that I would love to respond to, but cannot.

Please, don't let this happen to you, and put your email in the message. We will work on clearing this up as soon as possible.

Thanks for your understanding
