We have a Strategic Plan!


(Now with attached, 79 page, Strategic Plan!)

To our fellow KBOO community members:

KBOO has reached an important milestone: a draft strategic plan for building a stronger, more sustainable KBOO that can meet the challenges of an ever-changing medium and provide unique, independent programming to a growing community not served by commercial radio in both traditional and new innovative ways.

Open House at KBOO: See How We Broadcast Off Site

We will be broadcasting many festivals and events live from the community this summer, and we decided to have an Open House at KBOO to give the community an opportunity to see the equipment and production set up.This TUESDAY, June 7th, from 5 - 8pm, we will be broadcasting from the Lobby to a Production studio at KBOO. Please come if you're interested in volunteering for Live Remotes, if you're curious about how it works, or if you just want a peek  in on some of the exciting new happenings down here!

Come see how we make the radio magic happen.

Hosted by Chief Engineer Tom Hood, and Training Coordinator Erin Yanke.

Strategic Planning Public Meeting April 11th 7pm


Please join the Strategic Planning Committee of KBOO Community Radio on April 11th at 7pm at Tabor Space, 5441 SE Belmont, inside the Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church. We are asking for feedback on our Strategic Planning Process. We'll be sharing with you what we've accomplished so far to help ensure KBOO's future in this changing media and cultural landscape. We have been working on organizational issues, funding strategies, and developing new trainings, programming, and supporting what we have been successful at for the past 41 years while looking ahead to the future of media and broadcasting. 

LIfe During Wartime 15 Year Anniversary!

Rebecca Gilbert and I started Life During Wartime in 1995... and now it's hosted by Kevin, Kate, Cissie, Colin, and still me! We are celebrating 15 years of our punk rock radio show on KBOO with a live concert at Black Water Records, 1920 SE Morrison St on Thursday August 5th.  Performing will be hardcore heroes Lebenden Toten, the noisy assault of Walls and the return of Social Graces.  The show will start at 7PM sharp and has a $5 cover.  All ages are welcomed to this event, which is a benefit for KBOO.

Roosevelt Oral History Project on the air This Wednesday!


As you may remember, KBOO was awarded funding from the Regional Arts & Culture Council for a collaborative project with Roosevelt High School.  Six students are participating in the project.

Brooke Palmer, Ryan White, and I have been working weekly with the kids who are participating in the Roosevelt Rough Riders Oral History Project. We are so excited, and a bit nervous to be going on the air this Wednesday! Solomon will act as the host for the show. We will play the interviews that were conducted by Briana, Erin, Willie and Dorian, with interesting residents of Portland. Tyrin will do technical support work.
