KPOV's Fall Membership Drive Is Coming! Become a Member Now!

Creating radio from the heart is one of the main things that separates KPOV from everything else on the dial?

As a KPOV member, listener, volunteer, or supporter you are the heart of KPOV and the you help make it all happen.

Please make a gift today for our Fall Membership Drive, October 11-19.

Authentic radio from the heart of local people is rare in a homogenized, commodified world. We are lucky enough in Central Oregon to be able to find it on the dial at 88.9 FM or kpov.org all day, every day.

KPOV memberships start at $40. Donations of $60 or more qualify you to choose some great thank-you gifts.

All donations qualify you for a Grand Prize Drawing* for two nights at Lara House Bed and Breakfast in Bend. Make your pledge by October 11 at 3:00 p.m. to also qualify for an Early Bird Drawing* for a $50.00 gift card to Boneyard Pub.**

KPOV is bringing back our signature event, The Beatles Singalong, Saturday, October 5, at 7:00pm at the Boys and Girls Club in downtown Bend.

Six popular local bands* will lead you in singing and dancing with your favorite Beatles songs. This blast of a fundraiser for KPOV features local beer, wine, and food, a silent auction and raffle, costume contest, and more!

Dress in your 60’s best (or not), leave your troubles far away, and twist and shout with a little help from your friends. You deserve it!

Attention fans of Youth Radio Hour and E-Town (and who isn’t?):

Beginning September 4, Youth Radio Hour will be airing Wednesdays at 4:00 p.m and E-Town will move to Thursdays at 4:00 p.m.

Make a note of it, and keep tuning in to these great shows!

This recorded series comes out of a collaborative effort between the Deschutes County Historical Society and Deschutes Public Library. KPOV will play two oral histories each month on The Point between 9 and 9:30 am, on the second Friday and third Wednesday in a segment called “Historic Moments of Central Oregon.”
