Help us "Build the Bridge" to $1Million
The Bridge Street Project, a unique collaboration between two non-profit arts organizations, KVMR and the Nevada Theatre, demonstrates the many benefits of arts collaboration and has created a local treasure that will benefit our community for generations to come.
We are continuing to raise money to pay for the project! In November of 2015 we launched the "Bridge to a Million" campaign to raise $1,000,000 by November 2016 to insure the remaining loan payments will be manageable.
To date we have raised $332,592. We have $667,408 to go!
The Community Room has been officially named with a generous anonymous donation and the sign will read:
The Miss Rumphius Room
Make The World More Beautiful
Community Matters
Now we need to name the Nevada Theatre backstage - a perfect opportunity for theater supporters and historic preservationists!
The Capital Campaign Committee is hard at work creating events and strategy to raise funds to build that "Bridge To A Million."

Get to Know a KVMR Broadcaster 
Laurie DesJardins

Laurie took the Broadcaster Training Class in 1989, after relocating to Nevada City in 1988 where she immediately realized that KVMR was a 'hub of the community.' "It was the glue held that everything together," she says. 

Laurie followed folk music avidly for many years. Coming from upstate New York, attending summer camps and festivals set her on a path immersed in folk culture, activism and socialism. 

Laurie grew up attending the Pete Seeger Great Hudson River Festival and was influenced by the way he created causes through music. "I have an urban folk background from the NY scene as oppose to Appalachia. I use music as a healing tool. I consciously listen to the lyrics and honor the poetry of the music I choose to use it in life," says Laurie. 

Laurie has a great appreciation for the festival culture, being immersed in the atmosphere of 'like-minded' people, feeling a sense of friendship with fellow attendees. Wherever she travels, Laurie seeks out folk festivals and finds them! Even in the pubs of Ireland, she is always able to locate the folk culture that has always been a part of her soul.

Hear Laurie on, New Brick Road, alternate Fridays at 10am

KVMR Underwriter of the Month 
API Marketing 
13020 Earhart Avenue * Auburn, CA 

Brad Weston and Merrill Kagan-Weston purchased the business in 1985, originally known as the Auburn Letter House, from Helen and Andrew Lord. Auburn Letter House was founded in 1946 by Esther Kline. Then, the company focus was typing and reproducing newsletters for service clubs.

With their combined 15 years as printers, Brad and Merrill shifted the company focus from copies and stationery supplies to offset printing, direct mail and wide format production. The company name changed to Auburn Printers, as they grew their employee base from 3 to 17, all residents of Nevada and Placer Counties. In 2012, they re-branded again as APi-marketing, and expanded into marketing and becoming a 
"team-player" for their customers.

APi-marketing has been a KVMR supporter for over 20 years. "We support community radio to keep it healthy, the same way we feel about supporting all of our other non-profits as well," says Merrill.

Merrill states, "We've supported KVMR all of these years because they support our community and free speech. We listen to KVMR because we truly enjoy the diversity of the programming."

Merrill's roots in alternative printing date back to the 1970's where she worked with a Southern California collective, Peace Press, that ran a professional print shop serving the local and national needs of radical and progressive political anti-war groups and organizations. They did publishing for authors, including Timothy Leary. Merrill met Brad while he was selling paper to the co-op. The two of them relocated to Auburn from Los Angeles for a better quality of life.

Brad and Merrill have many long-time employees who been with them throughout the growth of the business. They take tremendous pride in their honest and sincere relationships with their customers, with a committed focus to supporting non-profit organizations. APi-marketing delivers on their promise to provide quality products and services and committed turnaround times.
