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!

Abe and Joe Talk Radio 8/19

program date: 
Mon, 08/18/2008

Host Joe Uris steers the ship solo thru 2 issues, one local and one international.  

Locally, we're centered on Mike Erickson's [Wiki] 2004 "vacation" in Cuba, where he lost all of the receipts and other paperwork showing that his vacation was, in actuality, a humanitarian mission, carrying medical supplies to a Cuban clinic that doesn't seem to exist.  

Internationally, of course, is our relationship with Russia, now that they've demonstrated their admiration for US Foreign Policy thru mimicry, by brutally invading another sovereign nation under the guise of "Liberation."  Because they can.
