What's Happening @ KVMR

  • Jeez, how do you make a survey sexy?

    Maybe it's the monkey...

    "Ah, well, I guess we're going with the Survey Monkey theme, but maybe it's representative of our collective monkey minds," notes a smiling  KVMR 89.5 FM General Manager Julie Chiarelli. "We're always running around with...

  • Once again, KVMR 89.5 FM moves its daytime programming out to the Nevada County Fair for eight hours or so a day of making community  radio in front of, yup, the community itself. 

    Wednesday through Sunday (Aug. 13), there'll be a parade of community leaders, non-profit representatives,...

  • DENVER — They came to talk about Advocacy and Community Engagement, the Future of Music Libraries, Solution-Based Journalism,  Music Identity & Tastemaking  and much, much more. 

    Including a gang of four from KVMR 89.5 FM Nevada City, several hundred staff members, volunteers,...

  • KVMR celebrates its birthday with a BBQ and a potluck, but the community jam is the frosting on the cake.

    Earlier this month KVMR sponsored a concert at Pioneer Park celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love. The event was wildly successful, attracting twice as many tie-dyed...

  • KVMR has more than 150 volunteer broadcasters, and usually they’re raring to get on the air and play music. But sometimes fate intervenes, in the form of laryngitis, a flat tire, a sick puppy. At those times, three words spring to mind:

  • It's the 21st California Worldfest this weekend, and, hmm, the 21st time KVMR 89.5 FM will broadcast it, beginning to end. 

    Only the names are changing a little this year. 

    Lynn Heintz -- with eight years of KVMR live remote broadcasting experience behind him -- is taking the reins...

  • Broadcaster Johnny Gallagher, host of the Tuesday Music Magazine on KVMR 89.5 FM, grew up in San Francisco, just five blocks from Haight Street. When the Summer of Love blossomed in 1967 in a swirl of tie-dye, music, patchouli and other distinctive scents, he says it was “a party every night.”...

  • You could say the fishing's been good for KVMR 89.5 FM volunteer broadcaster/producers Betty Louise and Susan Davis. 

    Not only have they "caught" over 50 personal stories so far as part of the KVMR StoryCatchers, but they and KVMR just reeled in a second grant for their "A Place To Call...

  • Back in June of 1987, volunteer broadcaster Brian Lee's love for a particular era of oldies found his radio home on KVMR 89.5 FM. 

    Thirty years later this very month, it's still there, "Color Radio," Saturdays 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., a veritable "Rhythm & Blues Revue" (its original series...

  • There's something pretty special about KVMR 89.5 FM's broadcast tent at the annual Father's Day Bluegrass Festival.

    Just about every year -- when the main stage is empty or between acts -- a band or a jam, often impromptu, creates a sort of aura that  Eric Rice (in his 32nd year as...
