Beginning my term as President of the Board


I had a good time last night at the Blues Power benefit concert for Tom Wendt.  It was inspiring to see how many people have been touched by a long-time KBOO DJ.  Personally, if not for KBOO, I would not have learned to listen to and enjoy non-pop music like blues and bluegrass.

Tonight is the first meeting that I'll chair as President of the KBOO Foundation Board of Directors.  The agenda is posted here:

If anyone is reading this, one topic I'm interested in discussing is how do members feel about the juxtaposition of our new (well-done in my opinion) underwriter announcements with the "non-commercial" aspect of KBOO?  Our underwriter spots fit the definition of non-commercial that will satisfy the FCC and maintain our non-profit status.  And we can put the sponsor donations to good use.  But I know that when NPR started having their environmental programs sponsored by ADM, I looked askance. 

2009 Board of Directors Election


The 2009 KBOO Board of Directors Elections are here.  There have been two live candidate forums, which are available online to listen to if you missed them. 

1st Candidate Forum | 2nd Candidate Forum

More information is available on our Governance page.  If you are craving more discussion of the candidates and issues, here is a place online to ask questions and toss out opinions about who will be seated on the Board (just click on Add new comment at the bottom.)
