Bend ranks 11th among 50 communities competing for the Georgetown University Energy Prize, a national competition to reduce energy use and win a $5 million award. After a two year competition period, ending in December 2016, 10 finalist communities will be selected and then judged against six other criteria. The final winner will be announced in July of 2017.
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.
