Larisa, we lost KPOJ eight months ago. We didn't make this request to KBOO before now because we didn't have any reason to think KBOO was interested. This petition came up when we learned that Thom Hartmann offered his show for free to KBOO, and we learned that KBOO was considering the offer.

This didn't come out of the blue. We're chiming in on a conversation that is already happening.

As a community radio station, I'm confident that KBOO wants to hear from the entire community they serve, notwithstanding the handful of commenters who think no one has the right to speak up respectfully.
