Take The Drive to 105

KVMR's Winter Membership Drive is coming right up, only we're adding a little wrinkle. This time, for the first time this century, our drive will begin on a Friday, Friday February 3rd, in fact, with a goal of $105,000. The sooner we reach that goal, the sooner we'll end the drive. So it's the drive to 105, and your early contributions could help take a day or more off the drive once we reach 105.

So consider becoming a KVMR member, now in advance of the drive, and help us cut the length of our winter membership campaign. Become a new or renewing member – or simply make an additional gift – securely on this site... Or you can honor the broadcaster on the air right now by making your pledge now – early -- before the drive officially begins. 530/265-9555 or 800/355-5867 Again, you can help cut the length with earlybird gifts to KVMR toward that $105,000 goal.

Join us now – before our Friday, February 3rd opening – and help us make the drive to 105

KVMR partners with the Nevada Theatre Commission
to build a new home for KVMR

downtown Nevada CityKVMR community radio 89.5 Fm and the historic Nevada Theatre will join forces to build a new home for the station in downtown Nevada City and to expand backstage space and increase programming in the 146-year-old theater.

The two organizations will reconstruct the three "tin sheds" behind the theater, creating a building to house KVMR's operations, with additional dressing and green rooms for the theater. "This is such an exciting marriage - the theater of the stage meets the theater of the mind," said Michael Young, president of KVMR's board of directors. "We will construct a building that will be the pride of the community and underscore downtown Nevada City as the go-to place for arts and entertainment."

Here are some suggestions for improving your reception of KVMR. Keep in mind that the following are general suggestions and that every situation is unique. Start with the simple and work your way up. Click here for the full article . . .
