KPOV will be broadcasting the 2008 Arlo Guthrie benefit concert on Thanksgiving day.  Were you there? Do you remember how packed it was in Bend High? The energy?

KPOV’s Recent Grants

KPOV SENDS OUR GRATITUDE to two great foundations for grants received this summer!

EQUITY FOUNDATION awarded KPOV a grant to produce LGBTQ youth-led radio segments.  This project will engage youth in learning how to be a DJ and how to produce a radio show, under the guidance of an experienced adult DJ mentor.  Interested youth can get involved by contacting KPOV at info@kpov.org.

We would also like to thank Human Dignity Coalition and PFLAG Central Oregon for their work to engage youth in this project.

US BANK also extended a grant to KPOV to support our mission as an independent voice serving our community with local affairs and information, a unique selection of great music, and national and global news not offered by any other station in Central Oregon.
