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!

Stepmother: A Future Giant

program date: 
Wed, 09/24/2008

Here is a very young but advanced player of contemporary electric guitar music. Combining vocals and looping devices, he blends sounds with subtleties quite uncommon to young "noise" players who are so wont to blast walls of mish mashed overdrive to a reluctant audience. This fellow has no such issues and his music reflects the intellectual and humble character he brings to the neighborhood of St. Johns.

Currently, StepMother is sowing his wild oats travelling the world, but we eagerly await his return so that we can continue pushing him toward his destiny as a prosperous sonic artist.

What happens when you're broke and you need to get to a new job, an ailing parent, a powwow, college, or a funeral on the other side of the country? And after decades of globalization, what kind of America will you glimpse through the window on your way?
