  • As well over 250 star-gazing KVMR 89.5 FM volunteers and broadcasters gathered at the Miner's Foundry Great Hall to watch the Nevada City radio station's holiday awards ceremony Tuesday, the post-dinner gala led off with the unbridled enthusiasm of longtime volunteer coordinator Edy Cassell --...

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

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

  • 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...
