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!

Joe Clement talks with Ryan Wisnor about Blood Wednesday, a labor battle fought during the auspicious year of 1934, when general strikes erupted in Portland and other West Coast port cities. In particular, striking longshoreworkers blocked the train that runs near Pier Park and were met with police, who fired on the workers and sent them running for cover in the Douglas Firs. Thought they suffered losses that day, the strikers ultimately prevailed through community support and helped galvanize workers up and down the West Coast. 11:40 minutes (5.34 MB)
