I love Italian music and I play it with Lucia on the the Italian Hour.
I am crazy about Mexico, telenovelas, and 50s R&B. I like trees. Also, gamelan.
Been a member of KBOO since September 1987... yikes!
TAKIMBA has been in/on Radio for over a decade and Djing for longer. Spending most of his free time traveling the globe & collecting audio gems along the way he has assembled one of the most eclectic collections ever known. KBOO is one of the last places where WE can still hear and play no corporate music and news that matters!! Radio does not have to come with commercials or an agenda. We like to call it "The Best Music you've Never Heard"
Greetings fellow terrestrial & internet radio fans! I am a KBOO volunteer.
I started in radio at age 16 working after school as a board operator/announcer for a small commercial station in a rural part of Arizona. Back in that time, even commercial stations were very much like community radio. Lots of local live happenings, including remote broadcasts from town hall meetings to the high school football games. One of the shows I produced was called, "Cattleman's Livestock" for the area ranchers!
We did not have digital means to edit audio; we either recorded commercials straight onto a cart, or recorded onto an Ampex reel-to-reel and edited with razor blades & splicing tape. We chose the former for the most part; there was little time to mess around with editing.
Anyway, I jumped on board as a KBOO volunteer in 2004 and have been involved with a variety of station programs and events such as Grateful Dead & Friends Radio Collective Programmer/Host (2004-2009). I have become one of them "tape-trading" (CDs or .flac files nowadays!) freaks since being part of the Collective and possess a crazy number of Grateful Dead unreleased soundboard & audience recordings. After all, our KBOO listeners love Grateful Dead & Friends for playing unreleased material from our own collections.
I was a Community Calendar producer from 2006 to 2010, learning about the cool things happening around town, to tell you about these upcoming events.
I've been a Waterfront Blues Festival remote broadcast anchor and technical assistant from 2004 to present.
I do music specials here and there ranging from Women in Metal to Prog Rock, edit audio and upload podcasts to this site. You might see my smiling face greeting you at our information table at an event, or behind the equipment at a remote broadcast. We do everything here from washing the dishes to sitting in the air chair doing live local radio. I love being part of this 'experiment' known as Community Radio!
I have been a KBOO member for nearly ten years and began volunteering with John Talley, host of "Indian World" in 2005 as an intern completing my interdisciplinary studies bachelors degree from Marylhurst University. I am fortunate to be able to consult with John as a radio mentor, friend and Mohawk elder. I am a Cherokee Nation of Ok enrolled tribal member and I have some Osage and Choctaw in my line. Although I grew up in Ok I have been in the Portland area for long time. I have ties with NAYA, NICWA, NARA and PPS Indian Education project and other Native American groups. My interest in producing this show is to connect folks in the Portland and surrounding area for a stronger Native American Community.
