It’s becoming a tradition on the KBOO Bike Show to open up the studio doors on the first show of the year. This year is no different — local band No They Do will be playing live (Blind Pilot played last year), free coffee and treats will be on hand, and listeners are invited to turn off their radio and come down to help create the show.

Drop in this morning at 20 SE 8th Ave between 11am and noon to drink coffee, listen live, and if you’re so inclined, to step up to the mic and tell Portland your new year’s resolutions for bikes. It’s your party! Details below:

I had a lot of fun doing this last year, even zipping down there last minute. Got to see the inner workings of kboo, had some great coffee, and got to see Blind Pilot play not three feet away, and they’re wonderful to hear acoustically.

And of course there was the bikey talk and bikey people. I wasn’t prepared to say anything on the radio, but if I had, it would have been something like: let’s hear it for bike boulevards (especially the ones that helped me zip down to the station in no time, Salmon and Ankeny), and let’s get more of them in the new year. The same holds true this year.


hey, kids, give us a heads up next time


KBOO has an incredibly beautiful mural covering the front of its building. Time for new photo.
