Join Spokane Public Radio for the first of our Fall Kids' Concerts. The Willows, October 6 at 1 p.m. at River Park Square.

The Willows, a dynamic Inland Northwest acoustic quartet, offer their spirited tribute to legendary folk singers Peter, Paul and Mary. With combined career spans of 135 years, recording artists Kelly Bogan, Bill Klein, Valerie Hughes, and Bruce Pennell reignite memories in their listeners and evoke sing-along gusto.

The annual Fall Folk Festival kicks off Saturday, November 10 with a free concert broadcast live on KPBX.

SPR's Verne Windham and Carlos Alden will host a diverse group of folk performers at Spokane Community College.

Spokane Public Radio does things a little differently than other public radio stations. We were founded on the mission of incorporating the local arts and arts organizations into what we do every day.

Flagship station KPBX holds eight free family concerts a year to introduce kids to a wide variety of music. Each February, we host the biggest sale of vintage vinyl and other music items at the Recordings & Videos Sale. Each fall, in partnership with the Spokane Folklore Society's Fall Folk Fest, we organize and broadcast live performances in a two-hour concert from the campus of Spokane Community College.

In addition to these annual treats, we thank our volunteers and underwriters each year with an event at a community venue, and produce many special events. We've had evenings with public radio reporters and hosts such as Cokie Roberts, Paula Poundstone and Zorba Paster.

Our mission wouldn't be complete without regular live performances from our own broadcast studios, along with our annual forums held at City Hall.

With the help of more than 300 volunteers, 30 staff and community producers, and you, our listeners, Spokane Public Radio has become a place where the community turns for live and on-air arts and cultural experiences.
