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!

Categories:
program date: 
Tue, 07/08/2008

Part 2 of 2

Interview with Jean-Pierre Dessou about poverty and homelessness in
Togo, West Africa, and an interview with Brian Lindstrom, documentary
film maker working on Alien Boy, a film telling the story of
Jim Chasse, focusing on his last day, when Portland police stomped him.
They believed he was a drug dealer when he was a person dealing with
schizophrenia who in his earlier life had been a musician of local
note.  Interesting juxtaposition of the lack of social stigma of
poverty in Togo and the police beating of Jim instigated in large part
by his appearance. Togo knows community. Portland's police don't.
