Beginning Sunday, July 9, KPOV will be changing our Sunday night line-up. “The Magic Blast from the Past and Witches Brew Variety Hour” will morph from a two hour combined show to a one hour show. DJ Harriet Potter will alternate weeks between the “The Magic Blast from the Past” and the “The Witches Brew Variety Hour.”
In the 11:00 p.m. hour, KPOV will air Geezer Rock, a syndicated show featuring new music from long-time performers; i.e. geezers.
KPOV SENDS OUR GRATITUDE to MRG Foundation for awarding KPOV a grant for 2017-2018 to support our role as a resource for social justice and community organizing in Central Oregon.
