KPOV is performing final adjustments and tuning to our new antenna. This work will cause us to lose our FM signal during times from Thursday morning until Friday evening.
You can still listen to KPOV’s live stream at kpov.org and to any shows you miss on KPOV’s show archives under the “Find a Show” button, beginning the morning after the show airs.
KPOV and Bethlyn’s Global Fusion are bringing truly hilarious singer-songwriter and political satirist Roy Zimmerman to the Volcanic Theater Pub in Bend on June 7, 2017 for a benefit concert for KPOV.
