Long-time friends and associates of late rock icon Joe Cocker spent Monday hosting a tribute show to him. They broadcasted from the KVNF Cocker Studio and shared his music and their stories about him with listeners. Cocker lived in Crawford, Colo. for nearly two decades where he started the Cocker Kids' Foundation with his wife Pam. Cocker was also a major supporter of KVNF.
On behalf of the board, staff, and volunteers at KVNF we want to express our deep gratitude for all Joe Cocker brought to this world. The legacy of Joe’s music and his great contributions to KVNF and to the North Fork community will never be forgotten.
KVNF and the North Fork Vision 2020 Project invite you to come see the North Fork Valley through the eyes of seven young reporters.
On Saturday, December 7th from 3-4 pm, join us at the Paradise Theatre for a screening of the Pass the Mic documentary. The film features interviews with a wide variety of characters from the valley, all conducted by youth reporters.
You'll hear interviews with a dancer, hops farmer, coal miners, a micro-hydro expert and more. The short film "HeartSpots" will also be shown.
Election Day is tomorrow, November 5th, and this is the first year Colorado has used all mail-in ballots for statewide elections.
But ballots mailed in today might not make it to county elections offices on time to be counted. The Secretary of State's Office is urging voters to consider dropping off their ballots at local drop-off locations in order to avoid missing the deadline.
Congratulations to Kevin O'Brien, the winner of our raffle contest for the 7 day, 6 night trip to Fiji!
Kevin and a (very, very special) guest of his choice will be traveling to the tropical paradise of Fiji for a luxurious stay at the Koro Sun Resort, Fiji's premier adventure resort on the island of Vanua Levu.
At Thursday night's annual meeting, KVNF's Ali Lightfoot and Amber McDaniel called Kevin to surprise him with the good news. He said his heart was beating out of his chest!
The new programming schedule you've been hearing about is now live. Head over to our Schedule Page to see the schedule, or just take a look at it below!
Democracy Now! has been moved to 3-4 pm, and most of our public affairs programming can now be heard from 6-7. We're ecstatic to bring you Radiolab, one of the most cutting-edge radio programs on the airwaves (fun fact - Radiolab Live is coming to Denver the weekend of November 1st!)
The Annual Meeting for North Fork Valley Public Radio, Inc. is coming up later in October — Thursday, October 24, 2103, at the Paonia Town Hall, 214 Grand Avenue, at 6 p.m. There will not be board member elections this year as we have two members standing for re-election this year — John Moore, and Kate Zachman, and we had no new nominations for our total of four vacancies. So no election is required at this time. The board will continue to seek qualified candidates to appoint to these vacancies.
