KPOO (89.5 FM) is a community radio station licensed to San Francisco, California, USA. The station is currently owned by Poor People's Radio.

Poor People's Radio was conceived of and named by a radio engineer, Meyer Gottesman. Meyer determined that the frequency was available and applied for a construction permit from the FCC. Upon the application, Meyer advertized for community involvement in the Berkeley Barb newspaper. After three community meetings, the concept had "legs" as shown by a turn out of over 100 community activists at a church at the corner of Oak and Baker Streets in San Francisco. It is one of the many stations operated by community broadcasters Lorenzo Milam and Jeremy Lansman on the premise that any community group with something to say should be able start a low powered radio station to serve that community. The station broadcasts meetings of various local governing bodies as well as different and varied music shows.
