Join KPOV for one of the funniest evenings this year in Central Oregon.
KPOV is bringing truly hilarious singer-songwriter and political satirist Roy Zimmerman to the Volcanic Theater Pub in Bend on June 7, 2017.
The world is full of funny songs, but Zimmerman’s hilarious, rhyme-intensive originals are also incisive calls to action, smart, savvy and undeniable.
Read on for more about Zimmerman and why you can’t miss this show. Also check out our sponsors so far and how you can become one! Read more ›
Interzone has moved from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
KPOV is proud to announce our volunteers of the year for 2016. With over 100 volunteers at KPOV, it is quite an accomplishment to become Volunteer of the Year.
The winners this year are Carolyn Clontz and Joe One Drum. Carolyn hosts the Monday Point and sets up our programming each Thursday and every other Friday morning, a critical task for KPOV.
Joe has been volunteering with KPOV since before we went on the air. He was instrumental in building out the studio and provides all manner of mechanical and technical assistance at the station and for our live remote broadcasts.
