What's Happening @ KVMR

  • It's round two, live (well, nearly) on KVMR.

    We'll bring you the latest Congressional Town Hall with Republican Rep. Doug LaMalfa this Monday night at 8pm, recorded earlier that evening in Oroville.

    LaMalfa will likely talk about the Oroville Dam situation and the massive 190,000...

  • KVMR 89.5 FM is heading north to Alaska for its next live remote music broadcast this Saturday night at 11 p.m. 

    Excuse us...Live from Alaska?

    But that's nuts...it's more than 2000 miles from the radio station's Nevada City home. 

    Well, leave it to KVMR volunteer...

  • It just sounds so, um, Ridge-y, we guess the word would be. 

    She calls herself Starlight Kompost, with roots deep on the fabled San Juan Ridge where she's lived since age 3, and lately Starlight has been doing a weekday two-minute astrological report, "Star's Stars", Mondays through...

  • Indie Pop & Counter-Programming Among KVMR Offshoot's Offerings

    This Saturday could be one of the biggest days in radio station KVMR's history. 

    Or it could just be the "beta launch" of a new, millenial-oriented online stream the Nevada City community radio station is...

  • 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...
