How To Put Your Pet's Photo On KVMR's First Ever Calendar

Sure, we've offered KVMR 89.5 FM socks, cookbooks, baseball caps, undershorts, paper dolls, tote bags (to carry your totes) and on and on over the years . 

So why not a KVMR Pet Pin-Up Calendar for 2019? 

And right now, your non-profit community radio station is looking for your favorite photo of your favorite pet for possible inclusion in KVMR's first calendar, which is being published with support from Incredible Pets of Grass Valley

KVMR Celebrates 40th Birthday With 7-Band Party in Pioneer Park

Well, you couldn't have  much more success than KVMR 89.5 FM's "Summer Of Love" celebration a year ago:  they ran out of wristbands for an event that was selling low-priced tickets at the gate only. And had to haul in extra beer on top of that. 

All as a fun-loving, into-the-moment, unexpectedly large crowd of 800 turned out at Nevada City's Pioneer Park band shell, dancing and prancing in such slinky shades of ultra-colorful garb that even the tie dye blushed. But wearing a teeshirt and shorts was just fine, too. 

KVMR To Air Back-To-Back Music Festivals: High Sierra This Week, Worldfest Next Week

It isn't every day you get to hear back-to-back live broadcasts of major music festivals, but this is definitely the month for it on KVMR 89.5 FM. 

This July really gives the Nevada City community radio station a chance to shine with remote broadcasts of the High Sierra Music Festival in Quincy this weekend and California Worldfest at the Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley next week (Thursday, July 12-Sunday, July 15). 

Say 'Cheese,' Pretty Please, String Cheese, That Is

KVMR's coverage of this year's High Sierra Music Festival starts off with a four-hour marathon evening performance by the jam band String Cheese Incident. 

Whew, it doesn't get much better than that for fans of the popular Colorado band, who'll kick off KVMR's four-day live festival broadcast next Thursday, July 5th at 8 p.m.  In fact, their 25 year history is packed full of surreal experiences, epic moments, groundbreaking involvement and huge accomplishments. 

KVMR: Where A Hall of Famer Handles Your Event Announcement

When you submit an event or class for KVMR 89.5 FM's Community Calendar or public service announcements, chances are Hall of Famer Barbara Graves will handle it for you. 

"I've been here from the days we typed them individually from paper submissions," she explained  "Now we process them all via internet."

Graves' volunteer work sorting and writing announcements may seem mundane, but it's important to a radio station that wants to help non-profits and individuals get the word out on what's going on locally and regionally. 

How Utah Phillips' 1893 Rail Car Became A Cultural Train Symbol in Weed

WEED, CA — It's a slice of railroad heaven, and maybe that's why it's not always the easiest to find the Black Butte Center for Railroad Culture here the first time around. 

Over Memorial Day weekend, it was the "go to" place for friends, family and fans of the late folk music icon, Bruce "U. Utah" Phillips, as well as various railroad enthusiasts. 

Spring Strawberry Finds New Home At Fairgrounds, On KVMR

With the fifth Strawberry Music Festival set to open at the Nevada County Fairgrounds this holiday weekend, it seems like the venerable spring version of the festival has found a new home.

"From what I can tell, they (the festival) are quite happy about being in Grass Valley," said KVMR 89.5 FM festival broadcast producer Eric Rice. "And it seems like the (Fairgrounds) crew loves having them here, too."

New DJ Husky LePew Celebrates His 100th Show On KVMR

When Tony Beverly graduated high school, he wrote that his dream job was to be the next Wolfman Jack, the legendary '60s late night radio disc jockey who was also seen in the film "American Graffiti".

Decades later, Beverly finds himself on radio, having the time of his life after a sometimes rocky road.

So that was quite a late night celebration they held last week for KVMR 89.5 FM disc jockey Husky LePew, Beverly's utterly clever on-air radio name.
