To All of Our Wonderful 2012 Donors
Thanks very much
to everyone who made a financial contribution to KBOO last year. It is very gratifying that so many people value our work and recognize the importance of taking a little responsibility for helping support us.
While the numbers are not yet finalized, the generosity of our online donors in December may
have set a new record for online giving to KBOO in a single month; but if not the total will be very
close to the record. And that doesn't include the many former
KBOO members who decided to renew their membership last month.
Oh and your tax documents will arrive late this month. More info here
Radio Pictures - KBOO's 2013 Film Series
Thursday, Jan 10, 7:00pm
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton St.
KBOO Radio and the Clinton Street Theater have a partnership to bring you a monthly film series about...well, it could be about radio, or any of the many types of programs that KBOO airs -- politics, labor, human rights and of course, lots of music.
Our kickoff screening is THIS THURSDAY
and we will present the 1988 film TALK RADIO
, in which a rude, contemptuous talk show host becomes over- whelmed by the hatred that surrounds his program just before it goes national. Watch the trailer below.
|Movie Trailer 1988 Talk Radio|
This film had its genesis in Portland. Tad Savinar, co-writer, talked about his role recently at the Oregon Sesquicentennial Film Festival. The story goes that Tad Savinar was listening to the radio as he painted when Eric Bogosian visited him, and as they marveled over the vitriol they were hearing. Thus, TALK RADIO was born.
KBOO host Lisa Loving will introduce the film and concept behind Radio Pictures, her experience as a KBOO talk radio host and board member - and will then introduce Carl Wolfson, who has agreed to come and talk about his experience as a progressive talk radio host in PDX, for Clear Channel - and his new online show.
