KVMR broadcaster Eric Rice, longtime host of Saturday morning’s “County Line Bluegrass,” has only been one place on Father’s Day weekend all those years, and that’s producing the Nevada City community radio station’s yearly live remote broadcast of the CBA festival at the Nevada County Fairgrounds.
So Rice and fellow broadcasters John Adams and Dennis Brunnenmeyer are putting together a bluegrass blowout special this Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. ( 89.5 FM, 105.1 FM Truckee, kvmr.org streaming) featuring favorite and classic live Father’s Day festival performances. Heck, they’ve only got, yup, 35 years of broadcasts from which to choose.
