Ways To Connect

KVNF's website has a new look that makes it easier to read and navigate, whether you're checking it out on a desktop computer, tablet or smart phone.

Called 'responsive design', the new look resizes our layout and content to work with different devices. News reporting, public service announcements and event calendar are all still part of the website - as well as the ability to listen live or catch up on public affairs hour shows.

The new theme will make it easier for staff to update and maintain, and we think it's more attractive to boot. We hope you like it as well!

Formed in 1969 in the Trenchtown area of Kingston, The Mighty Diamonds are a significant part of Reggae history.

KVNF Community Radio presents a Roots Reggae and Rocksteady Revival featuring the incredible Melodians at the Paradise Theater in Paonia on Saturday, March 14th, at 8 PM.  The Melodians are one of Jamaica's greatest Rocksteady groups, cutting a series of classic singles during the late '60s and early '70s that included the internationally famed "Rivers of Babylon" and "Sweet Sensation."

KVNF Presents:
 

The Mighty Diamonds:

KVNF Presents the original classic Reggae Harmony Trio from Kingston, Jamaica, The Mighty Diamonds with the Yellow Wall Dub Squad. This amazing Roots Reggae band is doing a "Tribute to Bob Marley 70th Birthday Celebration Tour."

One of the pre-eminent practitioners of “live looping”, Zach Deputy’s one-man show of "Island-infused, Drum 'n' Bass, Gospel-Ninja-Soul" has the energy and sound of a 6-piece band. Ensconced behind an array of microphones and technology, Zach and his nylon stringed guitar weave a tapestry of instrumentation and voices in an ever-evolving, improvised arrangement that is ultimately based on a composition but allowed to breathe with the audience.

It was same song, second verse at a court-remanded hearing on Western Slope Layers, the Hostetler hen-laying operation on Powell Mesa. At issue is whether the 15,000-hen facility is compatible with the rural neighborhood or a menace to nearby residents.

This just in. There is a sizeable fire burning at Stahl Orchards, located at 631 Stahl Rd in Paonia. 

According to reports from neighbors, there are several fire trucks and many firefighters fighting the blaze that began sometime around 3:30pm today, Monday 5/6/2013. Robert Leuallen and Lynne Anderson report that there have been at least two large holes cut in the building to release heavy smoke.

As of 7pm, there have been no reported injuries. The community has rallied, and the Crawford Ladies Fire Auxiliary is said to be taking meals to the firefighters.
