New & Renewing KBOO Members... This party is for You!!!
<p>We had an overwhelming response at THE MELTING POT this Fall Membership drive and broke all pevious records for the show. I told listeners at the end of the show that I would try to organize a Thank You Party for new and renewing members. Well guess what? It takes place tomorrow 11.23.2010 & with your support we may be able to do this more often. We will have over 20 performers including Bands, Djs, Fire, Aeriel Acrobats, Hooping, Interactive Art, Dance and a Potluck to celebrate community connections and Give Thanks. We will be asking for a $2 donation but no one will be tuned away. Please bring a side dish if you plan to participate in the potluck from 6-8p. We will be broadcasting THE MELTING POT Radio Show from The Watershed Cafe from 8-10pm (devoted to teaching art to the underserved) @5040se Milwake (just a 4 min drive from KBOO Studios. Whether you like the music or not, the performances will speak for themselves. Hope to see you all tomorrow. Blessings...</p>
Thank You All for making THANKS4GIVING 2010 a Huge Success !!!
With your help The Watershed Cafe and "Drawbridge" (Its FREE Tuesday Night Art Event) had their biggest night to date. The best part is it happens every week, so if you had a blast bring some friends any Tuesday 9pm -12 @5040 SE Milwakee and learn about Fire, Beat Making, Hooping, Painting and more.
Tune in to THE MELTING POT Tuesday nights for a list of live entertainment and instructional courses.

I want to take a minute to Thank all of the participants for making this an amazing experience for all.
The Board and Staff - for believing in and letting me do this broadcast event. The members and listeners are so good to THE MELTING POT & KBOO during the drives that Iv'e been looking for a way to say Thank You.
Engineering - John Mackey for all of the pre-production and troubleshooting. Sean, Josh & Ken for a quick setup, creative thinking, and monitoring a clean signal during a live event, without volunteers like you we would not be able to produce these events.
Volunteers - Ani, Justin, Paula, Kurt, Keller, Nia, Daniel, Emily, Danielle for representing the KBOO vibration to the fullest.
Members - Without your constant support we would not even be on the air, never mind broadcasting from events like this. Thank You, for your smiles, claps, cheers and contributions for the community potluck (believe it or not there were tasty leftovers).
And to the performers for adding a multi-sensory experience to the show ...
Members of Portland Pure (Public Urban Ritual Experiment)
Blake - Flatbike
And the countless dancers, hoopers, fire manipulators for your vibrations...
(forgive me if i missed anyone)
Give Thanks & Blessings... Dr. J
