News & Cultural Programming at KBOO

KBOO News | List of Public Affairs shows on KBOO

KBOO community radio has been bringing diverse communities together for forty years.  We offer over twenty hours per day of programs that are produced locally by volunteer community members.  This is critical for having local voices on the airwaves at a time when media ownership is consolidating and the remaining local entities turn to syndicated programs.  Furthermore we offer genuine diversity.  In a city that is over three-quarters white, we offer programming by and for Asian, African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and those from many other backgrounds.  We put youth (with a part-time youth coordinator assisting), veterans, and the disabled on the air.  And we bring these communities together on and off the air!

Ned and Mary Boyne  move into an old manor house in Dorset, deep in the English countryside. Its need of major renovation and its isolation are exactly what the young couple had dreamed of finding once that had 'made it'.  And the story that there is even a ghost, makes the place even more appealing. But strangely, all they can learn about this haunting is that  you won't know you have seen the ghost until 'afterward'. And this leaves them totally unprepared for what does happen.
