Thom Hartmann on KBOO Starting Monday, October 7th

For 45 years, KBOO community radio has been at the heart of progressive Portland - providing a forum for neglected perspectives, promoting diverse community events and sharing local and national news, as well as offering independent musicians a place to showcase their work on the radio.

We are still going strong, and have supporters from all over the world. Progressive talk radio host Thom Hartmann is a big supporter of KBOO, and loves the deep analysis of topical political issues heard on a daily basis on KBOO.

Over the last few months, we've been trying to decide whether to air any part of Thom Hartmann's 3 hour daily talk radio program. We've heard from a lot of you, from both sides of this question, and have listened hard in trying to decide what to do.

A personal appeal from Thom, in addition to the community support for his program, has pushed us to agree to offer a temporary 3-month, one-hour a day time slot to Thom Hartmann on KBOO. We are happy to hear that X-RAY FM will carry his show, and KBOO is working closely with the new station to coordinate programming. We will possibly carry the Thom Hartmann Show as a stop-gap until the new station starts up and begins to play all three hours. But we are open to your suggestions, and flexible in order to meet our community's needs.

Thom Hartmann will air on KBOO for a 3 month trial period starting Monday, October 7th from 4 - 5 pm on weekdays. This will include the popular 'Lunch with Bernie' talk show with Independent Senator Bernie Sanders on Fridays.

Call 503-231-8032 and give us some feedback! Love it? Hate it? We want to know! Let us know what you think!! There is also an on-line form which you can access here.

KBOO is YOUR community radio station and we want to hear from you.
