KPOV thanks the 225 listeners who became members during KPOV’s Spring Membership Drive!
We would not be here if not for you and we are very grateful for your support. We are also grateful to all of you who volunteered during the drive.
We finished the on-air drive a little short of our goal, but you can still help us reach our goal of raising $24,700. We have set a new goal of raising $1000 by Monday, May 2. All pledges received before then will count toward our spring drive, so you can still move us toward our goal and support local, non-commercial radio in Central Oregon.

If you are having trouble receiving KPOV’s FM broadcast, it’s all because lightning stuck our antenna sometime in the recent past! We are working hard to repair the damage and will return to our usual signal strength as soon as possible.
You can always listen to KPOV streaming live on our website by clicking “Listen Live” on the homepage. You can also listen live with one of our mobile applications. More information about the KPOV mobile apps can be found here.

KPOV has a great new music show produced locally. It’s called Guitar Showcase. Tune in Tuesdays from 10pm to Midnight at 88.9 fm or streaming live on kpov.org.
New KPOV DJ Jim Burns describes his show this way:
If you love guitar music with it’s variety of style, sound, and genre, tune in to the Guitar Showcase. You will hear a mix of selections, some as familiar as family and some lesser known artists that will make you want to hear more…. From Atkins to Allman, SZabo to Zappa, and every one in between. Tune in every Tuesday from 10pm to midnight for the Guitar Showcase.
