Treasures From The KBOO Public Affairs Archives are audio gems

 Retired as of July 2016

1st Wednesday of the month from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. 

On this monthly program we feature Treasures from the KBOO Public Affairs Archive

Please help us preserve these audio gems!

Every first Wednesday of the month from 6 - 7 pm, we present programs from KBOO's Public Affairs Archive. They are examples from an unmatched collection, and we have a plan to make the whole library available to anyone with a computer in the future (with your support!).

KBOO's Public Affairs Archive Digitization Project

KBOO has an archive of over 7000 recordings of speeches, interviews and documentaries dating back to 1968, our first year on the air. Unfortunately, we rarely have time to broadcast them, even though many retain their value. Some that are on old-fashioned recording tape are deteriorating. We will soon apply for grants to pay for the digital re-recording of these programs. This will save the sound that otherwise might be lost, and will also enable us to make these unique programs available to you via our website. The foundations that will underwrite this project want to make sure that you, our KBOO audience, care about these recordings. In other words, they want to see us raise some seed money for the project.

If you can help, please donate via our membership form & on the comments form, type ARCHIVE PROJECT.
