What's Happening @ KVMR

  • Chanteuse/Comedian Visits Saturday; Holiday Social & Concert Next Week

    Things really seem to be heating up at Miss Rumpius' Room,  and just in time for the holidays. 

    That's the versatile community room in KVMR's new building that was named for a children's picture book, and...

  • Legend has it the Moth started on a small-Georgia back porch, but reality has it that it's grown into the Peabody-award winning "The Moth Radio Show" and has spawned a cottage industry of related storytelling activities and events. 

    Not bad for a Public Radio Exchange (PRX) weekly radio...

  • On the weekend before Thanksgiving, it was a unique way for KVMR 89.5 FM to say thanks to some of its supporters. 

    Last Saturday, around 50 KVMR listeners and friends made their way some 1300 feet beneath the Sierra into The Ballroom, a stunning underground cavern where, ironically, some...

  • Sometimes, they could use a traffic cop inside KVMR's downtown Nevada City studios on Saturday afternoons. 

    That's when Rockin' & Stompin' host Wesley Robertson hosts up to three -- and sometimes more -- bands on his show (Saturdays, 2-4 p.m.)

    Last weekend was no exception. The...

  • Okay, he just decided to take the KVMR 89.5 FM broadcaster training class last spring. 

    Passed that, became one of the Nevada City non-commercial station's newbies. 

    Then he took a shot and ran for the KVMR board of directors, and...got elected to it by fellow broadcasters this...

  • Herbalist, author and KVMR 89.5 FM "Garden Forum" host Kathi Keville never dreamed she'd write 15 books. 

    "Of course not, no," she laughs. "I wasn't even thinking of writing a single one." 

    But here she is, author of "The Aromatherapy Garden: Growing Fragrant Plants for Happiness...

  • First of all, it ain't your mother's old-fashioned Ladies Club cookbook. 

    And, secondly, it's both the appetizer and first course, so to speak, of KVMR-FM's autumn membership drive, which starts Monday on the Nevada City non-commercial community station. 

    That's when "Eating...

  • She calls the volunteer job "a whirlwind", and it is, going one weekend from greeting attendees and helping count money at the KVMR Celtic Festival and Marketplace to starting a promotional campaign the very next weekend to garner entries for the Nevada City radio station's current "Animal House...

  • In a tradition that began nearly two decades ago, KVMR 89.5 FM will celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day with a day-long live remote broadcast Sunday and a day full of special programming from the Nevada City station's new studios on Monday. 

    Sunday's broadcast runs from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m....

  • Twenty KVMR Celtic Festivals, twenty teeshirts. 

    Except one shirt is very different. 

    Instead of a list of the year's festival performers, it's mostly a list of those who cancelled. 

    That was the fifth annual festival, held  just four days after the 9/11 tragedies in 2001...
