General Manager Jon Howard took the reins on November 16th and is busy managing his move from the Isle of Wight, U.K. and immersing himself in all things KVNF. Jon is steeped in the U.S. version of public radio and in rural living. He grew up on the eastern plains of Colorado and then logged over 20 years in public radio including university stations in Texas and Kansas and a multi-county rural station in the Allegheny Mountains.

The proposed by-law changes below are to be discussed and voted upon at our upcoming annual meeting, which will take place at 6pm on October 15, 2015 at Paonia Town Hall,  214 Grand Avenue, Paonia.


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!

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.
