kboo radio tower

 

KBOO and the Clinton Street Theater have partnered to bring you a monthly film series about....well, it could be about radio, or about anyone of the many programs that KBOO airs--politics, labor, human rights, and, of course, lots of music.

A new film or event every second Thursday of the month, so stayed tuned to the radio and check back on the website, because you never know what might be happening month to month.

We'll also collaborate on bringing you special events throughout the year like the annual celebrations for Zappa, Lennon, Miles Davis, and more.

keep the hives alive still

In June 2016 a group of beekeepers, farmers, community organizers, environmental groups, and concerned citizens banded together to host the “Keep the Hives Alive Tour” to raise awareness about the plight of pollinators and how toxic pesticides contribute to their decline.
 
Bees and other pollinators are declining at an alarming rate and an overwhelming number of scientific studies link these population declines to pesticide use.  Unfortunately, uses of toxic pesticides are having far-reaching impacts on a wide range of environments – everything from urban parks, to croplands, to beeyards and aquatic ecosystems. Beekeepers, farmers, and consumers all need a healthier environment for bees! That’s why the Keep the Hives Alive Tour traveled across the United States during National Pollinator Week in 2016 to educate the public about pollinator declines and how we all can work together to protect our pollinators.

Last June beekeepers, farmers, farmworkers, scientists and environmentalists came together to organize the “Keep the Hives Alive Tour.”  A truck carrying 2.5 million dead bees was driven across the country in order to raise awareness about the plight of pollinators and how toxic pesticides contribute to their decline. Along the way, beekeepers, farmers, scientists, and community leaders were interviewed about the issue and ways we can all work together to save bees. The Keep the Hives Alive film tells the story of the tour, including how beekeepers, farmers and community leaders are all coming together to help solve this problem.
