What's Happening @ KVMR

How That 'New Music Guy' and Jerianne Are Preparing for Friday's Ticketpalooza

That "new music guy" has become quite the fixture on Jerianne Van Dijk's Friday Morning Show on KVMR- FM (7-10 a.m., 89.5 FM, 105.1 FM Truckee, kvmr.org streaming) 

Todd Wahoske usually holds forth for a half hour at 8:30 a.m. But this Friday (April 19) he'll be there for the whole shebang, along with special guest Michael Keene (host of "Kanikapila" on Sunday mornings). 

Terry Robb & His 19 Best Acoustic Guitar Awards Play KVMR's Intimate Community Room Sunday

Okay, now here's a guy who won an award so many times in a row that they finally gave up and named the darned thing after him. 

That'd be Terry Robb, who nabbed the Muddy Award for Best Acoustic Guitar for 19, count 'em, 19 years in succession from its inception in 1992 to 2011, from the Cascade Blues Association in the blues-crazy Portland, Oregon area, where the Canadian-born musician grew up and lives. 

What A Wild KVMR Weekend, Including Sunday Art In The Garden Show

What a wild weekend they've got over there at KVMR 89.5 FM and KVMRx.org.

They've got three, count em, three live events, including the second "Art In The Garden" Art Show & Silent Auction party this Sunday 3 to 5 p.m. at the Miner's Foundry, downtown Nevada City.

That'll be preceded by a live remote broadcast of a DJ party celebrating the 2nd anniversary of KVMRx.org at the Grass Valley Brewing Company, 141 East Main Street, this Saturday, 6-11 p.m., on The Bridge 105.7 FM & KVMRx.org streaming. 

Justin Farren, Wes Collins Doing A 'Front Porch'-Style Concert at KVMR

The organizers of an upcoming KVMR 89.5 FM house concert are inviting music fans to "join us on the Front Porch," according to co-producer Cheri Snook.

No, that's not exactly true about the Sunday afternoon, April 7th performance of singer-songwriters Justin Farren from Sacramento and Wes Collins coming all the way from North Carolina. 

But KVMR's aptly named Miss Rumphius' Community Room has such an intimate feel and only 30 seats that it feels like you're watching somebody up close on a front porch. 

Instant Friends, Mentors & Music Inspire This KVMR Co-Volunteer Director

Sure, KVMR 89.5 FM is a volunteer-driven radio station, but there's so many volunteers, you need someone to coordinate them all. 

Or maybe two someones, especially since Edy Cassell, KVMR's Volunteer Director since early this century, is now working half-time at KVMR and half-time for Sierra Harvest, another organization near and dear to her heart. 

Just about 14 months ago, enter Shauna McKenna as a Co-Volunteer Director with Edy, and it was a dream job come true. 

San Francisco Talk Show 'Your Call' is Making Waves on The Bridge 105.7 FM

For the past dozen years, independent media producer Rose Aguilar has been host of "Your Call", a weekday morning talk show at San Francisco's upstart  public radio station, KALW. 

You can say upstart because KALW has a much smaller audience than KQED, a ratings giant that has more listeners than any other Bay Area radio station, including all, yes,  all commercial stations. 

And because KALW is making a name for itself by branding itself "local public radio." 

Kim Rogers' Longtime 'Good Stuff' Moves To Saturday Afternoons On KVMR

This is, indeed, a big week for longtime KVMR 89.5 FM broadcaster Kim Rogers.

On Thursday (March 7), her weekly "Good Stuff" roots music program celebrates its 19th anniversary (2-4 p.m.)

And on Saturday, "Good Stuff" moves to the weekly Saturday time slot that featured KVMR legend Wesley Robertson and his "Rockin-N-Stompin'" show for some 29 years, also 2 to 4 p.m.

"Oh, I just come in and throw music on," quipped Kim. "But it is a little intimidating."

Laura Miller: Subtle Humor, Heartfelt Tunes Popping Into a Head Steeped in KVMR History

Longtime KVMR 89.5 FM broadcaster Laura Miller was out walking her dogs a few days ago when her cell rang. 

It was someone from The Prospector as she looked around her and quipped, "It's the press. They're always hounding me." 

That's the sense of subtle humor and fun that Miller brings to her radio show and to her life, where she now specializes in arranging and conducting estate sales.
