What's Happening @ KVMR

  • Festivalmania will be breaking out all over KVMR 89.5 FM this Saturday as the Nevada City radio station winds up its "Summer of Love" on-air fundraising drive. 

    "There'll be a plethora of tickets to a plethora of festivals," claims KVMR Program Director Steve Baker.  "Now if we only knew...

  • The Big DOGs are already howling on KVMR 89.5 FM, which has so embraced the national Day Of Giving (DOG) to community non-profits that the Nevada City public radio station is kicking off its spring membership drive in conjunction with the coast-to-coast event.

    In fact, KVMR will be...

  • Adela Wilcox has made the journey from shy community-radio angel to a heartfelt voice speaking loud and clear on behalf of KVMR 89.5 FM.

    Host of “Ineffable,” an eclectic 4 to 7 a.m. music show, the self-described “very shy person” first found her voice as a volunteer, putting in years of...

  • That darn Paule Castro. 

    One of the co-hosts of the KVMR 89.5 FM biweekly series, "Zen Tech," he and good friend Glenn Far (they met through KVMR, duh) wanted to invent a computer and technology series that wouldn't frighten the so-called Luddites away. 

    And that was the birth of...

  • It's round two, live (well, nearly) on KVMR.

    We'll bring you the latest Congressional Town Hall with Republican Rep. Doug LaMalfa this Monday night at 8pm, recorded earlier that evening in Oroville.

    LaMalfa will likely talk about the Oroville Dam situation and the massive 190,000...

  • KVMR 89.5 FM is heading north to Alaska for its next live remote music broadcast this Saturday night at 11 p.m. 

    Excuse us...Live from Alaska?

    But that's nuts...it's more than 2000 miles from the radio station's Nevada City home. 

    Well, leave it to KVMR volunteer...

  • It just sounds so, um, Ridge-y, we guess the word would be. 

    She calls herself Starlight Kompost, with roots deep on the fabled San Juan Ridge where she's lived since age 3, and lately Starlight has been doing a weekday two-minute astrological report, "Star's Stars", Mondays through...

  • Indie Pop & Counter-Programming Among KVMR Offshoot's Offerings

    This Saturday could be one of the biggest days in radio station KVMR's history. 

    Or it could just be the "beta launch" of a new, millenial-oriented online stream the Nevada City community radio station is...

  • Back last summer when the Animal House Revisit-TIN project was mostly just an optimistic glint in the eyes of KVMR 89.5 FM and the Nevada Theatre collaborating with the Nevada County Arts Council, nobody knew if inviting artists, builders and other creative types would end up working out. 

    ...
  • Beautiful things can evolve from humble beginnings. Anita Sandwina and Velvy Appleton first crossed paths in 2003 at a late-night campsite jam at the Strawberry Music Festival. 

    The night was dark, there were too many guitars strumming, some drunken howling, and the song selection was...
