  • The way new music composer/artist Randy McKean sees it, there's nothing wrong with keeping a smile on your face and some smart humor flowing, both in performance and in a modern band's persona.  

    He's a (not "the") leader of the four-piece chamber music ensemble Bristle, which will be...

  • Suddenly, there's a lot more to learn about new music at eclectic community radio KVMR 89.5 FM in Nevada City, and no longer is it simply on the station's airwaves. 

    In fact, the station's 26-year-old music director, Sean Dooley-Miller, has been busy locating and discovering what station...

  • Sure, KVMR 89.5 FM's volunteer broadcasters can perfect a song-to-song segue, find that special golden oldie, interview an artist coming to town or bring you storm and fire updates.

Utah Phillips once described the host...

  • "From out of the past, return with us now to those golden days of radio...with your hosts David and Linda Breninger." 

    Like an invisible beam, clothed in the darkness of the night, their alternating Sunday evening program, "Old Radio Theater," on KVMR 89.5 FM can chill you a little and...

  • On the heels of a successful 19th annual KVMR Celtic Festival that survived lightning, thunder, wind and even something called rain comes still another KVMR 89.5 FM tradition -- the station's Indigenous Peoples' Days special broadcast.
