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.
This year, instead of Mr. KVNF, we're taking your vote for Ms. KVNF. The nominees are... April Flowers, Ashley Krest, Go Betty, Joanna Calabrese, Karen Ortiz and Donna Littlefield.
See the nominees in the slideshow above, and then give us a call at 970-527-4868. For a small pledge, you can cast a vote for your favorite little missy at KVNF. It’s still silly, it’s still fun—it’s the MS. KVNF CONTEST!
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.

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.
