What's Happening @ KVMR

  • It came out of nowhere, almost, just over a month ago. 

    Suddenly, KVMR-FM had a shot at an exclusive interview with folk legend Buffy Sainte Marie, who will be headlining next Thursday night at the 19th annual California Worldfest, which the eclectic Nevada City radio station will be...

  • Maybe it's the Green Bay Packers sticker on her cellphone, but it's clear new KVMR 89.5 FM Underwriting Account Executive Melissa Seibold (pronounced Sigh-bold, due to "some German vowel thing") is definitely a Wisconsin native. 

    She got that midwestern "scrappy" spunk, she says, "from...

  • Earlier this week, KVMR 89.5 FM engineering intern Ron Baldwin was busy working on a computer system to archive the community radio station's programs when some replacement compact disc players arrived. 

    Since the station's been having some problems with its new CD player inventory,...

  • This is the week the grass turns blue as swarms of mandolins, guitars, fiddles and even banjos fill the Nevada County Fairgrounds, with the musical occupation being broadcast live on KVMR 89.5 FM.

    In fact, it's the 30th annual live remote broadcast of the Father's Day Bluegrass Festival...

  • Maybe it's one good trick inspiring another.

    The CAB is required for all public radio stations...

  • As Ralph Henson and some other KVMR 89.5 FM volunteers were putting away some sound equipment for a recent in-station house concert, someone noted that it was the second concert he'd produced in two weeks.   This is retirement?   "I'm busier now than I ever was," the former school teacher...

  • Still another first for KVMR 89.5 FM's new building's Community Room:  this time, they'll bring in some major local musicians for the facility's first concert featuring Nevada County artists. 

    "These are world class musicians," says KVMR volunteer broadcaster and event producer Ralph...

  • Representatives from 20 community and public  radio stations will descend on Nevada City this Thursday and Friday for what's being called a  regional media "summit."

    KVMR 89.5 FM is hosting the conference, which is organized by the 140-station National Federation of Community...

  • Utah Phillips

    This Friday would have been U. Utah Phillips' 80th birthday.

    Even though the legendary Nevada City folksinger/storyteller/activist hopped a westbound freight seven years ago, as his closest friends might say, KVMR-FM will be throwing him a birthday party on this week's Friday Morning...

  • One good tour deserves another, or at least that's what they're saying about KVMR 89.5 FM's new building.

    "There's no place like home," beams volunteer broadcaster Connie Coale. "And this place simply radiates it."

    Coale and owner's representative Diane McIntire organized the...
