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!

This audio track is the special promo that the Ubu Hour was planning on mailing to various media entities in a lame attempt to syndicate the show. Serves as a great look at behind the scenes at the Ubu Hour, where high quality radio theater gets made (cough, cough).  Please support the Ubu Hour and this community radio station by clicking on the "JOIN NOW" that you see at the top of your screen.
