Please help us with the Annual Book and Record Sale!


The Annual Book and Record Sale is a wonderfully fun community event that raises a few thousand dollars for KBOO.  We are in the midst of preparing the books, CDs, DVDs, vinyl, VHS tapes and the like for the sale, and would love to have your help!

We also need help in picking up donated goods, and in helping to take the donations to our storage site, which helps to keep our studios free to make radio.

Food Safety in a Post-Fukushima World

Here's a link to an article I just wrote for OpEd news. We need to push for better testing of food for radiation contamination.


Have fun volunteering for the Spring Membership Drive, and help KBOO too!


Have you been curious about how KBOO works? Do you have a little time to spend with us? If you want to check things out from the other side of your radio speakers, this is your time! KBOO's Spring Membership Drive begins Thursday, April 28th and runs through Saturday, May 14th, and we could really use your help!


Artist Kevin Fitzpatrick worked with RACC and close to 60 community and staff volunteers on the KBOO Community Radio mural project. The mural adds color, energy and style to the building and the street.  Swing by on bike, foot or vehicle, check out the mural and visit KBOO!

Volunteer Holiday Party / Open House this Saturday, Dec. 18th


We work hard together, so I'm very much hoping that you will be able to socialize, and share in some fun, too.  We will have refreshments, and the best company you could hope for! Please feel free to bring guests, and show off our station.

You are so important to KBOO-- we would not exist without our volunteers.  It would be great to see you convivializing for the afternoon... no hidden agenda, surprise surveys, or shifts to sign up for... just a little afternoon at year's end, so that KBOO can give back a little to the people who do so very much.

Just who is steering this ship, anyways?


For much of this year, KBOO has operated without a Station Manager. In keeping with KBOO’s tradition of trying innovative ideas to address challenges, the board accepted a proposal by the staff to give collective management a trial run. 

The Fall Membership Drive has been extended, and we need your help!


KBOO is in the midst of our Fall Membership drive. There is no better time to get involved!

Whether you are already a KBOO volunteer, or brand new to the community, we need you to make this drive successful! We welcome all supporters to answer phones during the drive. This is a great way to meet other volunteers, learn more about KBOO, make friends, and have a great time while providing very important help to keep KBOO strong.

Volunteer Update--


There are exciting things happening at KBOO-- and it's a great time to get more involved!  Here's a quick rundown of the current events at your community radio station.

Thanks to volunteers for helping with the Winter Membership Drive!


A huge thanks to the volunteers who helped with the Winter Membership Drive!

It was a pleasure to meet many new volunteers, who jumped right in to lend a hand. I very much enjoyed introducing new people to KBOO and to the dynamic community of volunteers who make KBOO what it is.

During the nine day drive, your great help made the fundraising fun--- which near as I can figure, is most important within a community.  Your participation exemplified the addage: many hands make light work.

If you started volunteering during this drive, and would like to continue exploring the opportunities that KBOO has to offer, please attend the next volunteer orientation-- which is Saturday, February 20th, 10am - noon-- or talk with me for more information.

KBOO's Winter Membership drive needs you!


KBOO's Winter Membership Drive begins on Friday, January 22nd. We still have opportunities for volunteers to staff the phones during our nine-day on air fundraiser, which ends Saturday, January 30th. Shifts are available from early morning through the evening. Please contact me with any questions, or to find a time that will work for your schedule. If you have considered volunteering at KBOO, but haven't yet taken the plunge, this is a wonderful way to check out the station, meet other volunteers, talk all things KBOO, and provide the station with much needed help during this important fundraiser.

Volunteers do many things during the drive; we still have openings to:
