What's Happening @ KVMR

  • Back last summer when the Animal House Revisit-TIN project was mostly just an optimistic glint in the eyes of KVMR 89.5 FM and the Nevada Theatre collaborating with the Nevada County Arts Council, nobody knew if inviting artists, builders and other creative types would end up working out. 

    ...
  • Beautiful things can evolve from humble beginnings. Anita Sandwina and Velvy Appleton first crossed paths in 2003 at a late-night campsite jam at the Strawberry Music Festival. 

    The night was dark, there were too many guitars strumming, some drunken howling, and the song selection was...

  • And just what would be about the best day to debut a radio program about...beer?

    St. Patrick's Day, of course.

    And that's just what Tom Dalldorf and Wesley Robertson intend to do on St. Paddy's at, gulp, high noon Friday, March 17th, green beer or not.

    But why "The Beer Show...

  • Mike Bissell just plain "grew up loving radio," he says. 

    The KVMR Wednesday Morning Show (7 a.m. to 10 a.m.) host remembers the Top 40 rock station era, of course, but he particularly liked how San Francisco's freeform early '70s station KSAN "made a radio era that was really exciting...

  • It's just the way KVMR 89.5 FM seems to be, sometimes... ready for the next big thing. 

    Aretha Franklin announces she's retiring after this year, ironically, at the same time the Nevada City noncommercial station has scheduled a five hour retrospective of the woman known as the  "Queen of...

  • Uh-oh. 

    At KVMR 89.5 FM, the on-air winter membership drive starts this coming Monday morning and goes for a week. 

    But station officials say that simply means it's time to tune in and participate. 

    "This is our three-time-a-year opportunity to tell our listeners our real...

  • Nothing is likely to stop a pair of determined 2016 KVMR broadcaster class graduates and "story catchers" from producing a four-way tale about Nevada County's homeless, especially now that they and KVMR 89.5 FM have been awarded a $5,000 California Humanities For All Quick Grant just over a...

  • "The Future of Cannabis Town Talk" is a free public forum taking place at the Nevada Theatre, 6 to 8 p.m. Monday night. It will also be broadcast live on KVMR.

    Speakers include :

    --Dan Agner, Cannaverse Solutions Branding

    --Forrest Hurd, Caregiver and Advocate

    --...

  • Christopher Redlocks, a longtime KVMR reggae disc jockey, will be feted this Friday night on his actual 50th birthday with a special show at the Crazy Horse in downtown Nevada City.

    The 8 p.m. show will also be broadcast until 10 p.m. live on KVMR, since, duh,  that's the time of Redlocks...

  • Three consecutive nights, three different cities, three live remote music and theater broadcasts. 

    That's how KVMR 89.5 FM is hoping to kick off its remote broadcast year this week by doing something they've never done before. 

    Thursday will be broadcast of the 3rd annual Nugget...
