  • Just about 20 years ago,  Glenn Far happened to spot a listing looking for a volunteer receptionist in The Union newspaper.

    Turned out it was at KVMR 89.5 FM, a non-commercial radio station in Nevada City.

  • With the addition of a pair of California music festival gems, KVMR 89.5 FM's summer live remote broadcast schedule is once again bursting at the seams...and then some.

  • There wasn't any doubt that Odin Medeiros-Riley was going to become the youngest KVMR 89.5 FM member, since he joined three months before he was born in January.
