Treasures From The KBOO Archives

October 4th - 19th we feature Treasures from the KBOO Public Affairs Archive

Please help us preserve these audio gems!

Every weeknight from 7 to 8 pm during the Fall membership drive, we are presenting programs from KBOO's Public Affairs Archive. They are examples from an unmatched collection, and we have a plan to make the whole library available to anyone with a computer in the future (with your support!).

KBOO's Public Affairs Archive Digitization Project

KBOO has an archive of over 7000 recordings of speeches, interviews and documentaries from our 44 years on the air. Unfortunately, we rarely have time to play them on the air, even though many retain their value. Some that are on old-fashioned recording tape are deteriorating. We will soon apply for grants to pay for the digital re-recording of these programs. This will save the sound that otherwise might be lost, and will also enable us to make these unique programs available to you via our website. The foundations that will underwrite this project want to make sure that you, our KBOO audience, care about these recordings. In other words, they want to see us raise some seed money for the project.

If you can help, please donate via our membership form & on the comments form, type ARCHIVE PROJECT.

Tonight, we feature a 1994 talk by environmental activist and agitator Judy Bari about the counter-intelligence program of the U-S government that targeted activists throughout the 70s and 80s. 

Judi Bari was a fighter and organizer for social and environmental justice. The common denominator in all the causes she fought for was her indignation over injustice, whether in the form of racism, sexism, political repression, economic exploitation, or ecological destruction.
