Remembering Jim Braun

Categories:

We are saddened by the sudden loss of long-time friend and volunteer Jim Braun, 79, who passed away August 24, after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage from a bad fall.

Jim was a native of Portland and was dedicated to community radio. He was not on the air very often but you would recognize his rich, deep voice on early morning classical shows in the 1990’s, a monthly Brazilian show, and occasional jazz substitutions.

Jim did a huge amount of behind-the-scenes production and news work. He recorded literally thousands of hours of public affairs programming off the satellite system, engineered morning Radiozines, and was co-producer of the monthly Indian show, “Mandala,” for over ten years.

Like many music junkies, Jim had one of the largest and most eclectic record collections on Earth.  He constantly dazzled KBOO programmers with historic vinyl rarities that he had acquired.  We have learned that Jim has donated his body for medical research. A memorial service was held on September 6th.  More thoughts on Jim can be found in Barbara LaMorticella's blog

New Evening Schedule!

Categories:

KBOO is making changes to our evening lineup, starting November 3rd. We are adding new rock, hip hop, and world music shows, opening time for guest programmers, and adding more public affairs in the evening from an African American perspective. Several shows are going off the air, and others are moving to a new day and time. We're still accepting new program proposals and those new to KBOO can download the program proposal form here.  Check out our new Music Page highlighting the changes and read The Skanner's new article.

We want to thank all the programmers who have put in so much hard work over the last six months to make this happen, and all of you who took the time to fill out our KBOO program surveys, which gave us the feedback we needed to make these changes.

Welcome to the Confessional

Each of us has a secret, guilt, shame that we carry with us. These little (and sometimes big) secrets weigh us down, hold us back from reaching our own individual potential. Sometimes we hide these secrets to avoid being judged by others, sometimes we hide them to stay out of prison. The fear of being discovered can lead to highly orchestrated daily activities to avoid being exposed, or it can hold one back from realizing true intimacy with others.
