My show: Wednesday Music Magazine
Connie started out with a 4-7am morning show, and then moved to a Thursday, 1-4pm slot she dubbed “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” which featured only women artists. Later, the show was named “One Size Fits All.” Since 1994, she has alternated with Jenny Michael on the Wednesday Music Magazine, 4-6pm.
“I like singer-songwriters who tell stories,” she explains. I love unique voices, harmonies and minor cords. Good vocals can carry a song. I prefer a voice and guitar over a big production.” She often has local and touring musicians performing live on her show. Connie says she especially values the freedom she has to change her show to reflect her changing music tastes.
Connie was a 2004 nominee for KVMR’s Best Female Voice and the recipient of the 2009 John Nichol’s Award for excellence in musical programming. In 2016 she was presented with the Bill Tuttle, Lifetime Achievement Award for service and programming to KVMR.
Although she has a long history as a broadcaster on KVMR, Connie has been involved with the station just as long outside the broadcast booth. Her KVMR resume’ includes co-editing the KVMR Program Guide, helping produce the NightLIVE! shows, organizing tours of the new building and creating greenery throughout the station, providing and caring for the plants. She also volunteers for many of the festivals, events, & outreach opportunities KVMR is involved in.
As an artist, photographer, musician, gardener and a life long learner, Connie is enjoying more time for her passions these days, being retired as founder/director/teacher of the Nevada City Charter School. KVMR has added even more to her already amazing life, with an incredible education, and friendships that will last a lifetime.
