Community Engagement Fair & Volunteering

On January 29th, KBBF was 1 of 103 activist and service organizations participating at the North Bay Community Engagement Fair at the Santa Rosa Fairgrounds.  Of the thousands of people in attendance, many eagerly signed up to volunteer at the station.  All have since come in to identify skills they have or are willing to develop, from writing, computer, artistic and technical skills related to radio broadcasting to organizing events.  Two families are participating in a work party this weekend.  If you would like the excitement and satisfaction of volunteering at KBBF, call us at (707) 545-8833.

Streaming & NEW Website

As promised, KBBF is now streaming online.  Historically, its signal reached 18 Northern California counties but as of December can be heard worldwide.  We are now redesigning the website to include extensive information and be more user-friendly.  Our present website is kbbf-fm.org. To support the station, you can still donate online using either PayPal or a credit card.

NEW PROGRAMS

In the past couple months, we’ve added a few new shows to our program schedule. La Mejor Version de Ti, a self-help themed show with Mariana Alvarez, airs Tuesdays at 6-7 PM. 

Foro del Ruido, alternative music in Spanish with Ricardo Ibara, airs on Friday 4-6 PM. Nora Villanueva is the new DJ on Tonos Clasicos, classical music with a Latin connection,

 Wednesdays 9-11 PM.

Women in Politics Panel Discussion

KBBF, its program Women’s Spaces, and NOW (National Organization for Women) will host a Women in Politics panel discussion.  The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors celebrated a major historic milestone when its three female members were sworn into office, marking the first time the five-member body has been composed of mostly women.  The panel will have an open discussion on the challenges of being a woman in politics.  You are welcome to join us for this free event at 1700 Corby Ave. Suite B, March 22 from 4-6 PM.

Immigration Information

KBBF receives phone calls from people wanting to let us know about alleged immigration raids at local workplaces. While we take these calls very seriously, we need to confirm any raids before we can put the information on the air. If you would like to confirm them yourself before calling us, you can call local congressman Jared Huffman’s office: (707) 981-8967
