We're celebrating 25+ years on KBOO with out-takes from four of our favorite shows.

We're featuring portions of

....a 2003 interview with internationally-recognized novelist Ernest J. Gaines regarding A Lesson Before Dying.

.... a 2008 chat with then-newcomer Felicia Pride about her collection of essays The Message: 100 Life Lessons from Hip-Hop’s Greatest Songs.  She went-on to be a writer on Queen Sugar and producer on Grey's Anatomy.

....an October 2022 conversation with New York Times bestselling author Kalynn Bayron about her book,The Vanquishers, a light-hearted vampire novel directed to middle-grade readers.  Perfect for Halloween.

....an April, 2023 talk with poet and literary activist E. Ethelbert Miller.  His album, "Black Men Are Precious,"  was a 2023 Grammy Nominee Finalist for Best Spoken Word Poetry Album.  This was the first year that this category existed. 

   As Oregon's longest-running broadcast dedicated to books by and about African-Americans, we've introduced listeners to local and international writers; to first-time and multi-published authors.  All genres, all audiences, all formats: that's what we enjoy and it's been our pleasure to share our discoveries with you.
