Come on Down to KBOO for the Winter Membership Drive

Do you want to get more involved with KBOO?  This is your time!  KBOO’s Winter Membership Drive begins Thursday, February 6th  through Saturday, February 15th.  
KBOO’s existence depends on on-air membership drives as more than 80% of our funding comes from our listeners--this is, in part, what allows KBOO to be so independent and unique.  We ask that all volunteers at KBOO  help with the drive, as we have more than 400 shifts to fill!

I am here

yep... still here. Testing: one, two.

The sale starts at 9 AM and goes until 4 PM.

Volunteer Spotlight on Shay Wright and Chris Andreae


Shay Wright

Shay has been a big part of KBOO's news and outreach teams since since getting involved with KBOO in 2010. After taking classes in audio production, she remembers her first job as a volunteer was recording a story about logging in Eastern Oregon, to be aired during the next day's evening news broadcast.

KBOO's Volunteer Spotlight for March, 2013


Jessy Damon came to KBOO in December of 2011, to use her skills in audio engineering, and to make connections in the Portland music industry.

Volunteers Keep KBOO Connected to Community!


KBOO brings the voices of our communities to the air with live broadcasts from celebrations, events, and cutting-edge lectures. Being able to respond to opportunities to broadcast from around town affords our listeners around the world the chance to be in touch with an exciting event.

Thanks to the generous support of our members, we were able to update our equipment. This has allowed us to vastly increase the number of live on-site broadcasts over the last year. But it takes more than modern, nimble equipment to make an on-site broadcast compelling radio- it takes the considerable skills of caring volunteers who are announcing, producing, and engineering the sound, all working together in a tightly knit team.
