What's Happening @ KVMR

  • 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...

  • Sure, David Bennett Cohen -- playing an intimate house concert in KVMR 89.5 FM's Community Room this Sunday at  5 p.m. -- was one of the original Country Joe and the Fish back around 1965. 

    But Cohen's musical activism goes back far before that to, yup, April, 1961 when he was one of the...

  • Veteran independent radio producers (and married couple) Gregg McVicar and Gabriela Castelan are longtime "Strawberryians," a term for regulars at the semi-annual Strawberry Music Festival, just held last weekend at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. 

    But a side trip took them to KVMR 89.5...

  • KVMR 89.5 FM's live broadcast of summer music festivals gets "The Strawberry Way" kickoff this holiday weekend when the Nevada City radio station carries 50, yes, 50 hours from the Nevada County Fairgrounds. 

    Station broadcasters will team with the Strawberry Music Festival's legendary...

  • Well, they've gone from being humble KVMR 89.5 FM phone volunteers to the hosts of what may be the only "Down Under" music show of its kind in the country. 

    Bronx Bob and Kiwi Annie -- the on-air monikers of Bob and Ann DeSanti -- represent their geographic origins as well as their...

  • KVMR will broadcast a pair of Town Hall Meetings this week. 

    First off, a YubaNet.com town hall focused on making the most out of your participation in public meetings takes place Monday 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Nevada Theatre, downtown Nevada City

    "A bewildering alphabet soup,...

  • 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...
