Kamm, MacDonald air on KVIE

Neo-impressionist folk musicians Paul Kamm and Eleanore MacDonald of Penn Valley perform regularly in Nevada County clubs and community events. On Tuesday at 7 p.m., they’ll be heard regionally on KVIE Channel 6’s “California Heartland” in a new segment titled “Sights and Sounds of the Heartland.”

Each week, the show will close with regional artists and panoramas. For this segment, the Heartland crew spoke to several regional music representatives to find artists whose music focuses on rural or agricultural themes.

KVMR General Manager Brian Terhorst recommended the duo, said Sheryl Gonzalez, KVIE’s publicist.

“After hearing Paul and Eleanore’s music, it was unanimous – the whole crew wanted them on the show. Their performance was absolutely beautiful, and one of their songs, in particular, spoke of the loss of farmland … it’s exactly what we are looking for,” said Dan Mogulof, KVIE director of regional and national productions.

KVMR has record membership drive

It’s another record-setting membership campaign for Nevada City’s community radio station, KVMR-FM (89.5). A weeklong on-air fund-raising drive garnered 807 listener pledges totalling nearly $74,000, setting new individual day records almost the entire week.

The station has had several successful drives, but last week’s topped the record 2002 winter drive by nearly $8,000. A salute to the legendary free-form Bay Area radio station KFAT drew in more than $12,000 in pledges.
