12/5 KBOO Happy Hour Listening Tour

Site category: 
KBOO Station News
Short Description: 
Please come and see what we do, while listening to Democracy Now! and our evening news

I'd like to invite you and all KPOJ supporters to a "Happy Hour Listening Tour" at the KBOO studios, next Wednesday, December 5th, between 4:00 - 6:00 pm. KBOO is located at 20 SE 8th Ave.

Please join us and listen to Democracy Now!, watch our all-volunteer news team create the evening news, meet other volunteers who produce the M-F morning Public Affairs programming, staff who keep the doors open and provide public radio production training, and our board who oversee the KBOO Foundation. I'm sure some of our diverse, music show hosts will be on hand as well.

Enjoy refreshments and the chance to meet your community radio station - up close and personal. If we can't convince you to throw your support for progressive radio in our direction, then perhaps there is a way for KBOO to support your efforts to keep a diversity of voices and choices on the airwaves.

KBOO is a "community supporting" radio station, and here to serve the under-served, which progressive talk radio now could now be considered to be. It would be great to meet you, and other KPOJ listeners and supporters. Feel free to send this out to your mailing list, we look forward to welcoming all of you with open arms.

Call with any questions you may have, Lynn
