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.

Queer History from KBOO's Archives

In honor of June being Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month month, Treasures from the KBOO Vault will be listening to 2 pieces of queer public affairs aired on KBOO in the 1990's.

The first piece we will hear was recorded on National Coming Out Day, October 11th, 1991, for the Old Mole Variety Hour by Andy Simon.

Our second piece we will hear on tonights program is a panel discussion recorded in 1998 at the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force's Creating Change Conference. This panel of activists will be discussing the issue of globalisation, and how it fits into the queer agenda, and how too often, it does not fit into the queer agenda.
