KVNF 90.9 off-air 10-11 am

KVNF's 90.9 signal serving the North Fork Valley will be off air for about an hour this morning, as work is being done on equipment mounted near the antenna. This also affects our translators in Crawford, Ridgway, Ouray & Lake City, as they depend on the 90.9 signal. If you're able to tune in KVMT at 89.1, it will still be on. Otherwise, you can listen to the online stream here at kvnf.org, by clicking the "Listen Live" link at the top of this page.

Thanks for your patience!

Spotting the Flock

Have you spotted the flock yet?

They’ve been incredibly busy, but they don’t mind much.  After all they ARE activists!

When asked about their first week in Paonia, Head Flamingo Franny stated, “We were a bit nervous when we saw all the snow in Paonia. But we learned how to create snowballs and an epic flamingo snowball fight (which lasted for hours) quickly ensued.”

I’m pleased to report that the birds are holding up quite well with the frigid temperatures and are quite enjoying their time here in beautiful Paonia, Colorado.

Give a Flock for KVNF

Flock spotted loitering on a local lawn. "The nerve of these fowl is an amazing thing to behold," says one KVNF listener.

Unbeflockinglievable: A Flocking Story

A flock of flamingos broke out of the Washington, D.C. Zoo and appear to be headed towards Paonia, Colorado traveling via KVNF's airwaves. They’re expected to land on the 90.9 frequency in Paonia on February 1st.

While the details of the birds' escape remains unclear, they’ve been identified as a group of activists out to give a leg up to community radio. Their activism tactics will include staging stand-ins in resident's front yards and employing the silent treatment.
