Do you want to get more involved with KBOO? This is your time! KBOO’s Winter Membership Drive begins Thursday, February 6th through Saturday, February 15th.
KBOO’s existence depends on on-air membership drives as more than 80% of our funding comes from our listeners--this is, in part, what allows KBOO to be so independent and unique. We ask that all volunteers at KBOO help with the drive, as we have more than 400 shifts to fill!
