Thank you so much to the 306 KPOV supporters who made a gift during our Fall Membership Drive! We are very grateful for your support for High Desert Community Radio.
Though we ended the on-air drive a little short of our goal of raising $27,000, we are very close. You could be the one to put us over the top!
All pledges received by Friday October 27 still count toward our goal! You can make your pledge online, or by mail or in-person to KPOV, 501 NW Bond Street, Bend, OR 97703.
Get ready for the holidays with a live radio variety show featuring the abundant performing arts talent in Central Oregon. The High Desert Home Companion, a benefit for KPOV, features music, an old time radio show, sketches, mock ads and storytelling.
“Time to put a Central Oregon spin on a time-honored format,” said show organizer Mike Ficher. “We have talented musicians, gifted actors and a wonderful storyteller who will combine to offer a memorable variety show for Central Oregon.”
