As my time draws near an end for my KBOO adventure, I decided to get down to the station and take photos of the folks who do a couple of my favorite shows.
"Radio Free Ireland" has been a fave of mine since the beginning and Maire, Shusli, Donovan and I have all become good friends.
"Incursion Rock" has been a favorite show of mine. They play Spanish speaking rock, especially heavy metal. I don't understand the words all that well, but I do understand the passion. I never had much of a chance to get to know these folks as well as I would have liked to, but they put on one awesome show every week.
I also ran into a few long time friends there, like Reggae Bob, Brian, Kathleen, Ani, etc.
I'll miss KBOO, but more than that, I look forward to the adventurous turn my life is taking with my wonderful wife, Shusli. We've talked about making this change for over a year now, and are diving into it and it is looking like we made a good landing and have a good future planned. I Love Shusli so much. We are re-entering our homeland. We are going home together.
It is nice to know, however, that KBOO will continue on without me. It is nice to leave the ashes of my show for you, YES YOU, to become like a Phoenix and rise up.
Shusli and I will be rising from our own ashes left in the city of Portland and become our own Phoenix's to do the things we need to do. Though our lives have changed, we will still be REVOLUTIONARIES!
Regae Bob has done the show "Good Times" for years as well as been a host of the program "Prison Pipeline."
Maire is a hero and friend of mine whose powerful voice I gleaned strength from to speak out against the powers that be.
Per has been a part of KBOO since I can remember. He is one of the best political analysts I have ever met. This man can weigh both sides of an issue and bring forth understandings of complexities in simple terms for all to hear.
