KPOV wishes to thank US Bank Foundation for awarding KPOV a grant to fund our programming and operations for the next year. With funding from US Bank, KPOV will be able to create more convenient on-line access to our rich trove of interviews and music performances, while we continue improving our programming every day.
We are very grateful for US Bank Foundation and our local US Bank for supporting KPOV and other organizations working for a better Central Oregon.
Beginning Sunday, July 2, KPOV has changed our Sunday night line-up. “The Magic Blast from the Past and Witches Brew Variety Hour” morphed from a two hour combined show to a one hour show. DJ Harriet Potter will alternate weeks between the “The Magic Blast from the Past” and the “The Witches Brew Variety Hour.”
In the 11:00 p.m. hour, KPOV airs Geezer Rock, a syndicated show featuring new music from long-time performers; i.e. geezers.
KPOV SENDS OUR GRATITUDE to MRG Foundation for awarding KPOV a grant for 2017-2018 to support our role as a resource for social justice and community organizing in Central Oregon. MRG Foundation also funds other outstanding Central Oregon organizations, who take advantage of KPOV’s avenues for outreach and education.
We are deeply honored by and proud of the confidence MRG Foundation shows in KPOV by funding High Desert Community Radio.
