What's Happening @ KVMR

  • 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...

  •  With KVMR's 20th annual Celtic Festival and Marketplace just days away, Green Team Manager Allison Miller finds herself short on volunteers to help with the massive recycling and garbage collection efforts for the September 30-October 2 event. 

    She says she needs some "heavy lifters" to...

  • It isn't every day kids and teens between the ages of 10 and 18 can find something that's "free, fun and you learn something, too."

    At least that's one way that Celtic Festival Youth Arts Program coordinator Laurie DesJardin  likes to describe the workshops and classes that take place...

  • Hard to believe, but it's a year ago this week that KVMR 89.5 FM's Wesley Robertson last produced one of the Nevada City radio station's live music festival broadcasts. 

    Sure, he wanted to take some time off from the hectic grind of managing the remote programming the eclectic station has...

  • Another experiment in community engagement comes to the airwaves of KVMR 89.5 FM and the radio station's Community Room this Sunday night on the 15th anniversary of 9/11. 

    It's a special edition of the station's occasional "Our Town" specials, this time featuring millenial poet and arts...
