KBOO gets a RACC Opportunity Grant!

KBOO found out this week that it will be awarded funding from the Regional Arts & Culture Council for a collaborative project with Roosevelt High School.  Students are being taught how to conduct interviews, edit audio and create great radio. 

This is a special opportunity for KBOO.   Former evening news volunteer, Ryan White and Youth Advocate, Erin Yanke will be working with Brooke Palmer, a Literary Specialist at Roosevelt teaching students the elements of story telling with sound.  We are thrilled to be able to accept the invitation from Roosevelt, which will result in a rich and powerful experience for the youth involved.

The students will be featured on KBOO radio on two separate occasions.  First they will be guests on April 28th edition of The Underground, the monthly program hosted by the KBOO Youth Collective. The Roosevelt students will be interviewed about their projects and will play samples from their 'work in progress.'  A few weeks later, on May 19th, the students will have their own hour-long program dedicated to sharing their project with the wider community.

Will Aaron Campbell's death finally bring police accountability to Portland?

Will Aaron Campbell's death finally bring police accountability to Portland?

A Multnomah County grand jury this week found no criminal wrongdoing by Portland police officer Ronald Frashour in the Jan. 28 fatal shooting of Aaron Campbell. The death of an unarmed young man distraught over the death of his younger brother has stoked long-burning fires in the community about the Portland Police Bureau's use of deadly force.

Haiti, Race and International Adoption

The arrest of 10 American Baptists for attempting to take children out of Haiti without permission has rekindled the debate over international adoption. Many Americans believe the plight of Haitian children more than justifies removal of orphans to new homes abroad. Critics fear incorrect identification of Haitian children as orphans and the potential for human trafficking.

The Other Team takes a look at the queer side of the book-aisle in Young Adult literature.

Does our rainbow-pride shine at the library? We'll discuss, as The Other Team takes a look at the queer side of the book-aisle in Young Adult literature.

Have you ever asked yourself: how queer friendly is my local library? Or what about the library at your local high school? These answers depend on where you live, and the perspective of the local school board.

There's alot going on in the world of Young Adult Literature, and tonight we'll take a closer look at the queer side of the story.

Tonight we talk with Twig Deluge, from Bare Bones Press and Productions, about his work toward bringing queer voices to the mainstream.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 02/02/10

Air date: 
Tue, 02/02/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
With Joe on vacation, Abe takes on the warm, fuzzy, not-at-all divisive issue of abortion.

 It's clear that the issue of abortion elicits a visceral reaction from certain members of the political right, in a way that few other issues do. The reason why is perhaps less clear than it might appear. On the surface, it is framed by abortion opponents as a question of the right of a human to not be murdered. Dig a little deeper though, and you find a fear of sexuality and sex -- particularly female sexualty, and the choice of young women to have sex on their own terms.

Two events, one in the recent past and one in the near future -- the  conviction of Scott Roeder, murderer of Dr. George Tiller, and the airing of a controversial ad during this weekend's Super Bowl -- prompt Abe to take a closer look at the debate around this most contentious of issues.
