What's Happening @ KVMR

  • Well, the 2016 Nevada County Fair is one event that KVMR 89.5 FM volunteer broadcaster "Mystic Al" Camillo will never forget. 

    There he was in the KVMR tent, as the station's  live broadcast producer, with a classic U. Utah Phillips county fair program playing over the airwaves, when he...

  • For the 20th time, KVMR 89.5 FM will move almost all of its daytime programming out to the Nevada County Fair, once again giving fairgoers a unique opportunity to observe and enjoy live radio in action.

  • Okay, Michael Keene is inexorably known as host of KVMR's long-running, popular and unique Hawaiian music program. 

    It's one of the few such shows outside the Hawaiian Islands themselves, though its success over the years has influenced other stations to add the sounds of  slack key...

  • On Monday, August 8th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, KVMR and YubaNet invite you to a community conversation about the state of emergency in the Yuba canyon. Join us at the Nevada Theatre and participate in the dialogue.

  • A recent article on YubaNet.com has reminded us of the extreme fire danger in our local canyon.  The following article was posted on Yubanet.com on August 2, 2016:

  • Well, the tradition continues. 

    KVMR 89.5 FM will celebrate its 38th birthday with a shindig this Sunday afternoon, although it'll be at a new location -- Grass Valley's Condon Park. 

    Just a couple years ago, KVMR art designer and volunteer broadcaster Kim Rogers just flat out...

  • Doesn't it always seem to get real busy and crammed around your birthday? 

    Just consider what KVMR 89.5 FM's got going in July, the month the station turns 38 years old. 

    There's your complete four-night, three-day live radio performances from California Worldfest, followed by...

  • It may have been a little odd that KVMR 89.5 FM broadcaster Michael Axelman got a "Rookie Of The Year" award at a volunteer appreciation banquet last December.

    "And I grew up on the radio,"...

  • Stop by KVMR 89.5 FM's new building almost any Friday afternoon, and you'll get to meet volunteer receptionist Therese Tesene.
