What's New for Volunteers Late January / February


January is a busy month for KBOO!  Many, many thanks to volunteers who pull together to make it all possible!  I want to thank  Jamilah Bourdon and Lisa Loving for producing the Martin Luther King Day live remote from the Highland Center. Thanks also to Leas Averill, Tom Hood, Kate Welch, Liam Delta, Devin LaCroix, Marty, and Bryan Stevens for for help with the tech aspects of the day his assistance.

Thirst: a documentary on water privatization battles


The documentary Thirst, directed by Alan Snitow and Deborah Kaufman, is available though the Multnomah County Library.

It’s a fitting topic for a day devoted to remembering Martin Luther King, Jr, since King’s work recognized the power of grassroots political action and, in his later years, also acknowledged the need for economic restructuring.

Soul, one of KBOO's Out Loud volunteer producers, is hosting a KBOO fund raiser in the form of a mini-workshop.  He needs our help in packing Liberty Hall with up to 145 people next Sunday from 12:45 - 3 p.m.

Two events in one afternoon:

We love volunteers who help raise funds for KBOO!

It's especially busy at KBOO in the next few weeks. We've got the Martin Luther King Day events, including a day-long live broadcast from some of the festivities. We've also got the very important KBOO Community Meeting which I wrote about previously as well as our special one-day on-air fundraising day, "No Beginning Too Small" on January 31. (More on that next week).

But what I really want to write about here today is two wonderful volunteers who have taken it upon themselves to do their part to help KBOO raise some cash:

Lipstick & Dipstick make me laugh Out Loud!

Set-up and prep

My goal is to produce sonic art that allows for a general expansion of viewpoint

--say what?

--close your eyes and listen

--what do you see?

I slowly peel back the layers-mysterious that encompass the knowledge and experience necessary to git where I'm a'wanting to go,

but then ain't that what its all about?

What do I do here at KBOO?


For my first blog entry I would like to introduce myself. My name is Sean Ongley and I've been with KBOO for about 1 and a half years. Currently I'm acting as an instructor for digital audio editing and production, talent booking, board operator, and arts reporting. My next reporting project is the Portland Jazz Festival. Recently I booked the annual Boo Bash at Holocene, 2007, and I continue finding talent for Jennifer Robin's Night of the Living Tongue experimental music/spoken word show. I got my start with Blues Fest as on site board operator for our annual remote broadcast. I was educated in audio engineering at Sound Master Audio/Video Institute in North Hollywood, 2002 under Brian Ingoldsby. But I'm also a musician studying at PSU, locally known mostly in avante-garde circles.
