Every 4th Sunday, we air the half-hour podcast, Rural Roots Rising, produced by Rural Organizing Project, which will connect the dots between issues that impact rural Oregon, such as immigration, affordable housing and responding to disasters from wildfires to economic recession. With this focus we will be lifting up each month the ways rural Oregonians are building stronger and more vibrant communities!

RRR Episode for 4/25: Behind the Scenes: KPOV & The Point.  This month’s episode continues our community media spotlight series with a behind-the-scenes interview with KPOV 88.9 FM, High Desert Community Radio station manager Bruce Morris. This episode is the second in a two-part profile of KPOV and features Bruce discussing KPOV’s early history and the role of local stations in community organizing. Bruce also shares firsthand insight on both the future of radio and the ways that community organizers can and should partner with their local stations. If you haven’t already heard it, we recommend listening to part one, Community Media Spotlight: KPOV & The Point, first.

Featured is music from Deef, Monk Turner, and The Road Sodas!
