What's Happening @ KVMR

  • 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. 

    This year, once again, Sunday will see a daylong...

  • Okay, KVMR Celtic Festival Producer John Taber maybe hasn't seen it all in music, but he's certainly been there a lot. 

    A 15-year employee of Bill Graham Presents, Taber worked The Band's famous, star-studded Last Waltz, he was there for most of the fabled Days On The Green, and he...

  • You wouldn't think listening to someone as they walk across the country would necessarily build your loyalty to a radio station.

    But to Marion Peterson, it opened her ears to KVMR 89.5 FM, a place where she has become a volunteer and now an on-air broadcaster as well.

    "I have...

  • Whew, with still another Open House in the rear view mirror (as part of the Nevada Theatre's 150th anniversary), KVMR 89.5 FM isn't slowing down a bit. 

    The 19th annual KVMR Celtic Festival & Marketplace is coming right up, still another live remote music festival broadcast is this...

  • Ten years ago this week was one of the brightest moments in KVMR 89.5 FM history, even if the circumstances were dim. 

    It was in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina -- which had left tens of thousands homeless -- when KVMR and other community radio stations got permission from the Federal...

  • KVMR 89.5 FM broadcaster Felton Pruitt credits his youth for his love of radio, something he has in common with scores of other KVMR volunteers. 

    Only one thing is different.  Where other broadcasters have been teachers, accountants, visual artists and so forth,  Pruitt has literally...

  • One thing definitely stands out about this year's annual KVMR Music Sale.

    It's at KVMR. 

    For the very first time, the non-commercial, eclectic radio station will hold the popular sale on its own premises this coming Saturdayand Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

    That's...

  • Normally, the sound of folk, roots and bluegrass music fill the airwaves of KVMR 89.5 FM each Saturday morning. 

    But this is no "normal" year when it comes to dry weather conditions so some of the mandolins and guitars will be put away to make way for a four-hour special on fire safety...

  • To the late, legendary folksinger/storyteller U. Utah Phillips, the Nevada County Fair is an annual ritual.

    "Everything in the world moves a little too quickly," he theorized in a KVMR broadcast from the festivities maybe 15 years ago. "But you walk into the gate to this fair and...

  • Just over a year ago, former KVMR 89.5 FM news director Brian Bahouth had this idea for a weekly news program about...marijuana.

    He figured with all the interest in legalization in  Colorado and Washington and more states likely to follow, it just might make for some compelling content...
