There’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday, days of consumption. Now there is a day set aside for giving: Giving Tuesday on December 1. Here in Oregon, we have Oregonians Give. We ask you to give to your favorite non-profits on Giving Tuesday.
Of course, we hope KPOV will be one of them. You are the reason we can provide great music, local information and affairs, and help other local non-profits advance their missions when they talk about their work on KPOV shows.
If you are a fan of western and cowboy music then do not miss this rare opportunity to see the fabulous Joni Harms in a VERY intimate setting right here in Bend, Oregon. If you love KPOV’s Calling All Cowboys show or love KPOV, this will be a great show. Proceeds support your local community radio station. That’s KPOV, of course!
December 4, 7 p.m., 22470 Rickard Road. Tickets are $20. Reserve seating at email@example.com or 541-322-0863. For more about Joni Harms, read on. Read more ›
KPOV is keeping it fresh and lively with a unique, two-part, live and locally-produced music show airing Wednesday’s from 10:00 p.m. to midnight.
The first hour, The Magic Blast from the Past, casts a spell of swell oldies from as far back as 1910-1969. Part two, The Witch’s Brew Variety Hour, is a cauldron conundrum, a modern blend of alternative digs and psychedelic-slanted jigs. Listen at 88.9 FM or stream it live.
KPOV is proud to add the new show “Carbonfreeda” to our broadcast schedule. Carbonfreeda is locally produced by Central Oregonian Diane Hodiak.
Listen to Carbonfreeda the first and third Fridays of each month at 9:30 a.m., alternating with Food Sleuth Radio.
Android users rejoice! KPOV now has an app that allows you to easily stream KPOV live from your android devices. It is now easier that ever to listen to KPOV and we are excited to be able to offer one more way of listening to your community radio station. This application is free. You can get the App from Google Play here, and on the Amazon App store here.
I-phone users do not fear, we still have our Apple App here.
