What's Happening @ KVMR

  • So you're doing a little late summer housecleaning, staying indoors or somewhere to fool the heat, and there's these boxes you forgot about.  

    You know, CDs, LPs, those things your younger ones maybe don't know even exist. 

    Well, what better use of them than to donate your, um,...

  • “If the Carter Family, Robbie Robertson and Alfred Hitchcock had written songs together, they might sound like this.” 

    That's singer-songwriter and Emmy-winning composer Ernest Troost’s self-introduction when he takes the stage, whether he’s playing for festival-goers at the prestigious...

  • Usually, there's a price tag attached to something like this, even if it's for kids (in this case, ages 10-18). 

    But not KVMR's annual Celtic Festival  Youth Art Program and its array of free (yup, free) classes and workshops, coming up late afternoon  4 p.m.-7 p.m. Friday, September...

  • It isn't every day you can see a possible national radio series premiere getting made, but that's exactly what's happening at The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley this coming  Sunday afternoon.

    And according to producer/host Elisa Parker, the pilot episode of "WonderLove" is "sort of ...

  • Jeez, how do you make a survey sexy?

    Maybe it's the monkey...

    "Ah, well, I guess we're going with the Survey Monkey theme, but maybe it's representative of our collective monkey minds," notes a smiling  KVMR 89.5 FM General Manager Julie Chiarelli. "We're always running around with...

  • Once again, KVMR 89.5 FM moves its daytime programming out to the Nevada County Fair for eight hours or so a day of making community  radio in front of, yup, the community itself. 

    Wednesday through Sunday (Aug. 13), there'll be a parade of community leaders, non-profit representatives,...

  • DENVER — They came to talk about Advocacy and Community Engagement, the Future of Music Libraries, Solution-Based Journalism,  Music Identity & Tastemaking  and much, much more. 

    Including a gang of four from KVMR 89.5 FM Nevada City, several hundred staff members, volunteers,...

  • KVMR celebrates its birthday with a BBQ and a potluck, but the community jam is the frosting on the cake.

    Earlier this month KVMR sponsored a concert at Pioneer Park celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love. The event was wildly successful, attracting twice as many tie-dyed...

  • KVMR has more than 150 volunteer broadcasters, and usually they’re raring to get on the air and play music. But sometimes fate intervenes, in the form of laryngitis, a flat tire, a sick puppy. At those times, three words spring to mind:

    “Better call Eric.”

    In just a few years as a...

  • It's the 21st California Worldfest this weekend, and, hmm, the 21st time KVMR 89.5 FM will broadcast it, beginning to end. 

    Only the names are changing a little this year. 

    Lynn Heintz -- with eight years of KVMR live remote broadcasting experience behind him -- is taking the reins...
