Sweet, sweet KVMR Swag!! and TICKETS!

Adriana Kelly's picture

It's KVMR's 40th birthday and we are CELEBRATING 40 Years on the Air with special limited edition SWAG. You'll be walking on AIR when you become a sustaining member and get our KVMR "Airhead" socks. Laura Miller has a Diamonds & Rust tee-shirt, and we've got one for Rockin' & Stompin' too, commemorating the 28 years our beloved Wesley Robertson hosted his show. RIP Wes, you are missed...

As usual, we're offering all the best events. Check out what's happening and plan your summer concert calendar. With the unexpected passing of one of us, I am reminded to say how grateful we are for you, our KVMR Family.

She's worn many radio hats over the years, even doing a stint as KVMR's General Manager. The pic below has Laura (far right) in bed with all the other Morning Show hosts... c1981

Well, dammit... With the unexpected passing of beloved longtime KVMR broadcaster and undisputed Live Remote Broadcast Champeen Wesley Robertson a few months back, we had a couple Wes-sized holes our hearts, and our programming. We had to ask ourselves, "What would Wesley do?" The answer was make a tee-shirt. The design (Kim Rogers & Jerianne Van Dijk) is modified from a shirt for a Palms Playhouse Live Broadcast. RIP Wesley Robertson. You are missed!
