  • When KVMR 89.5 FM  holds its broadcaster training class this April, one thing will be very, very different.

    It'll be held at the Nevada City radio station itself. 

    And, in fact, in KVMR's new facilities as part of the community's Bridge Street Project. 

    "For decades, we'...

  • As moving days into KVMR 89.5 FM's new home are approaching, the $4 million building project passed its first test with flying colors.

  • Longtime KVMR 89.5 FM "County Line Bluegrass" host Eric Rice is so jazzed about his show's 30th anniversary teeshirt that he's not even waiting until the non-commercial station's upcoming membership drive to offer listeners a chance at getting one.

    Did he ever think that could happen when he first came to manage the non-...

  • KVMR is seeking applicants for up to $10,000 in funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to produce national radio programming, with the funding being divided among successful applicants.

  • The 100th anniversary of one of the most unusual -- and little known-- truces in the history of warfare will be celebrated in a noon radio special Christmas Day on KVMR.

    Produced by Drew Darling at community radio station WERU in Blue Hill, Maine, the radio special details what Darling...

  • It makes sense for a non-profit, non-commercial radio station to salute its hundreds of volunteers, and that's exactly what Nevada City's KVMR did at a holiday banquet earlier this month. 

    "We have the most dedicated and committed volunteers I've ever encountered," Volunteer Coordinator...

  • A beaming Paul Emery accepted KVMR's Lifetime Achievement Award at the radio station's recent holiday banquet by joking, "I'll just quote Monty Python...'I'm not dead yet.'"

    The gregarious 70-year-old Nevada City radio veteran still hosts one of the longest-running and most popular...
