What's Happening @ KVMR

  • Of course, the Beatles' first feature film, "A Hard Day's Night", had to become a hit. 

    Everything the Fab Four touched that fabled year of 1964 turned to gold. And then some. 

    Now, though, the film's  being rediscovered for the spunky fun and off-kilter antics that young John,...

  • Over the past couple decades, Indigenous Peoples Day (IPD)programming has grown to be a real tradition on KVMR 89.5 FM. 

    What started out as a broadcaster or two at the Nevada City community station honoring native Americans with music and sound clips on what had been popularly called...

  • In September 1996,  KVMR broadcaster and volunteer Jenny Michael found herself in a tiny merchandise booth at the very first KVMR Celtic Festival. She and then-festival producer Karen Carchidi did the best they could as a crowd double or maybe even triple the Nevada City radio station's...

  • You see, it sorta comes with the late night territory. 

    A lot of people turn in early on Sunday nights and miss Meri St. Mary's The Underground Sound (alternate Sundays, 10 p.m. to midnight) on KVMR. 

    But her appeal goes far beyond KVMR's terrestrial signal and live streaming....

  • So you're doing a little late summer housecleaning, staying indoors or somewhere to fool the heat, and there's these boxes you forgot about.  

    You know, CDs, LPs, those things your younger ones maybe don't know even exist. 

    Well, what better use of them than to donate your, um,...

  • “If the Carter Family, Robbie Robertson and Alfred Hitchcock had written songs together, they might sound like this.” 

    That's singer-songwriter and Emmy-winning composer Ernest Troost’s self-introduction when he takes the stage, whether he’s playing for festival-goers at the prestigious...

  • Usually, there's a price tag attached to something like this, even if it's for kids (in this case, ages 10-18). 

    But not KVMR's annual Celtic Festival  Youth Art Program and its array of free (yup, free) classes and workshops, coming up late afternoon  4 p.m.-7 p.m. Friday, September...

  • It isn't every day you can see a possible national radio series premiere getting made, but that's exactly what's happening at The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley this coming  Sunday afternoon.

    And according to producer/host Elisa Parker, the pilot episode of "WonderLove" is "sort of ...

  • Jeez, how do you make a survey sexy?

    Maybe it's the monkey...

    "Ah, well, I guess we're going with the Survey Monkey theme, but maybe it's representative of our collective monkey minds," notes a smiling  KVMR 89.5 FM General Manager Julie Chiarelli. "We're always running around with...

  • Once again, KVMR 89.5 FM moves its daytime programming out to the Nevada County Fair for eight hours or so a day of making community  radio in front of, yup, the community itself. 

    Wednesday through Sunday (Aug. 13), there'll be a parade of community leaders, non-profit representatives,...
