Upcoming SPR Events

Don't miss this great Kids' Concert that will get you and the whole family dancing. Warm up in these winter weeks with some wonderful celtic music from Floating Crowbar on March 6 at 1 p.m. on KPBX 91.1. And you can also stream the concert online, on your phone, or through your smart speaker.

Join us in a conversation with Rick Steves on March 18 at 6 p.m. on KPBX 91.1 and KSFC 91.9, or stream online or via your smart speaker. This broadcast event will include information by Rick Steves about the current travel industry in light of the pandemic, projections for the future and a bit of reminiscing. Get your questions ready for a Q&A session hosted by Doug Nadvornick during the program.

SPR is a media partner with Gonzaga University for their Green Room Series. Like a book club for the performing arts, this speaker series invites you to learn and enjoy work from a wide variety of artists from the comfort of your own home.

This year SPR will be a media partner with the Hagan Center Speaker Series: Diversity Dialogues.  The Hagan Center Speaker Series “Diversity Dialogues: Conversations About Race and Equity" runs from January through June 2021 and will include a wide range of professors, authors, and editors speaking over Zoom, YouTube, and Facebook. The evening events are open to the public and will be a 60-minute live streamed conversation with a moderator to present questions.


Thanks for your interest in The Record Sale.  Out of an abundance of caution we are not accepting donations at this time.


For that same reason The Record Sale has been canceled for February 2021.


However please keep your eye on our  events page for more announcements in the future. Thanks!


Spokane Public Radio is not accepting donations for future Record Sales at this time. But please hang on to your possible donations, and we will hopefully be open to accepting them again soon. 

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.
