What's Happening @ KVMR

  • In a tradition that began nearly two decades ago, KVMR 89.5 FM will celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day with a day-long live remote broadcast Sunday and a day full of special programming from the Nevada City station's new studios on Monday. 

    Sunday's broadcast runs from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m....

  • Twenty KVMR Celtic Festivals, twenty teeshirts. 

    Except one shirt is very different. 

    Instead of a list of the year's festival performers, it's mostly a list of those who cancelled. 

    That was the fifth annual festival, held  just four days after the 9/11 tragedies in 2001...

  •  With KVMR's 20th annual Celtic Festival and Marketplace just days away, Green Team Manager Allison Miller finds herself short on volunteers to help with the massive recycling and garbage collection efforts for the September 30-October 2 event. 

    She says she needs some "heavy lifters" to...

  • It isn't every day kids and teens between the ages of 10 and 18 can find something that's "free, fun and you learn something, too."

    At least that's one way that Celtic Festival Youth Arts Program coordinator Laurie DesJardin  likes to describe the workshops and classes that take place...

  • Hard to believe, but it's a year ago this week that KVMR 89.5 FM's Wesley Robertson last produced one of the Nevada City radio station's live music festival broadcasts. 

    Sure, he wanted to take some time off from the hectic grind of managing the remote programming the eclectic station has...

  • Another experiment in community engagement comes to the airwaves of KVMR 89.5 FM and the radio station's Community Room this Sunday night on the 15th anniversary of 9/11. 

    It's a special edition of the station's occasional "Our Town" specials, this time featuring millenial poet and arts...

  • KVMR 89.5 FM volunteer broadcaster Joyce Miller grew up a child of the media, and she's never really completely let go. 

    This holiday weekend, she'll keep busy substitute hosting not one, but two programs: the folk/roots "Nevada City Limits" program Friday 10 a.m. to noonand the station'...

  • Paul Sanders is your bona fide, genuine, certified KVMR 89.5 FM newbie. 

    He's fresh from the Nevada City radio station's 2016 training class, he's full of ideas, and he's doing radio in, um, the middle of the night. 

    In fact, he'll be the host of "Red Eye Radio" early this Saturday...

  • Well, the 2016 Nevada County Fair is one event that KVMR 89.5 FM volunteer broadcaster "Mystic Al" Camillo will never forget. 

    There he was in the KVMR tent, as the station's  live broadcast producer, with a classic U. Utah Phillips county fair program playing over the airwaves, when he...

  • For the 20th time, KVMR 89.5 FM will move almost all of its daytime programming out to the Nevada County Fair, once again giving fairgoers a unique opportunity to observe and enjoy live radio in action.

    The Nevada City non-commercial station will broadcast over 40 hours of shows from the...
