The 2013 summer new member pledge drive is in full swing this week from 7/15- 7/19. We wanted to give you a good look at the gifts available for a pledge of $50 or more to KVNF. Modeled by our friendly staff and volunteers, here they are!
Change. Only six letters, but they string together to create one of the most powerful words in our language, and one of the most potent forces in our world.
Being a person with a strong bent toward etymology, I like to trace the origins of words as a means of unfolding their inner power. Like so many words in the English language, “change” comes to us from the Latin word cambire, meaning to exchange or barter. What a timely metaphor for KVNF’s 2013 Spring Pledge Drive!
Curtis Stigers returns to the Montrose Pavilion on Saturday, January 26, to celebrate KVNF and Hospice. The audience has been asking for his return since his performance nine years ago. Curtis, a modern Sinatra, takes a mix of standards and modern pop tunes and transforms them into swinging jazz tunes.
"Pass the Mic" is a youth storytelling and news corps program developed by KVNF community radio in Paonia, Colorado, in partnership with the North Fork Heart & Soul Project. Over the course of two years, 14 young reporters will be assigned to a "beat" reporting on a North Fork industry. Youth participants learn the skills of how to produce interviews and stories in a multi-media context, and will be supported in presenting their final projects to the valley.
The "wooden, dancing, mannequin, puppet guy" near Jeff's desk in the KVNF office has joined the cause! In a mysterious turn of events, he showed up yesterday with a hand-written note of his very own, proclaiming that he, "Will dance for pledges"! Who could turn down such a generous offer of support from our loyal friend.
Make a pledge! See him dance! Maybe a little stop motion animation? For the right price?
Not many artists stay sharp, relevant, and great into their 70’s and later (Picasso, Neil Young, Vladimir Horowitz, et al., come to mind), I have no problem including Bob, at 71, in this elite group. If you are a Dylan fan and don’t have this record you must run, not walk, to your computer and order it.
