About Record Sale Donations: In an effort to keep SPR staff safe and healthy as we provide public media to the region we are currently not accepting Record Sale donations.

The Arts & Humanities Are Our Mission

SPR Events

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.
