“I can’t even imagine my life without KBOO.”That’s what Shaheed Haamid told the audience assembled January 20 at the Oregon Historical Society to celebrate the opening of “50 Years of KBOO,” an exhibit marking the Portland community radio station’s first half-century. Haamid is a long-time KBOO volunteer, programmer and current board member.
They also share some of their own radio experiences. Abrams talks about the community station he helped to found in Boise, Idaho. Pushkin tells us about the syndicated college radio show he started in the early 1980s, which had to be distributed via vinyl LP. It’s a side helping of tasty radio history. The show is available in Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Google Play, TuneIn, Overcast, Radio Public, and any player that supports RSS. Need help subscribing? Click here for more info.
The same weekend Paul and Eric had the opportunity to attend the launch party for KBFG, a new LPFM community station in the Ballard neighborhood. The station was also featured in a recent New York Times feature on low-power FM. We share an interview with station staffers, co-founder Pam Burton, board member Jerry Russell and programming and promotions director MacKenzie McAninch.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
