KBOO is Hopworks' May 2015 Partner

KBOO is happy to be a part of HUB's Community Tap program in May! This means that 1% of all pint sales in the month of May at their 2944 SE Powell location will be donated to KBOO Community Radio. 


 Throughout the year, HUB will designate a non-profit each month to benefit from their Community Tap Program. This program was set up to help out organizations that HUB respects and appreciates in the community. We are honored to be selected for the month of May. 


FUNDED! A Podcast & Community Discussion Series on Criminalization

KBOO has received a grant from Oregon Humanities to create a podcast with two community groups that will explore criminalization-the process by which behaviors and individuals in our communities are transformed into criminal activities and criminals. We will be starting conversations by bringing together a diverse group of people to listen to podcasts and discuss the issues addressed. Participants will add to the dialogue by sharing their own experiences.

Stay tuned to our RFP for community groups to be involved. We thank Oregon Humanities for their funding and faith in us, and to Jessy Damon, the organizer for KBOO for this exciting project.

KBOO Community Radio and Contessa de la Luna, wish to congratulate

Happy First Anniversary to Rose City Native Radio!



On April 10th, we will be celebrating the 1st Anniversary of Rose City Native Radio, hosted, produced and engineered by Jackie Malstrom! The show stands on a strong legacy of Native programing and community building at KBOO, but is offering a new perspective, that of Native youth.

Underwriting KBOO Programs - Ethical Business Partners Support Community Radio

When you hear an underwriting acknowledgment on KBOO you can rest assured that we have partnered with sustainable local and regional businesses owned by people just like you: members of the community committed to supporting the access, training, and programming that KBOO provides.
