Upcoming SPR Events

40 years of Spokane Public Radio! This year marks SPR's 40 year anniversary. Join us at the station, 1229 N Monroe Street, to celebrate our birthday, have some light refreshments, and enjoy live music by Brent Edstrom and Brian Flick.

The open house will be from 3 - 6 p.m. on Wednesday, January 22nd.

On January 25 music from the Jazz Age, the Roaring 20’s to WWII, will be performed by The Zonky Jazz Band, led by guitarist Garrin Hertel at St. John’s Cathedral. The concert is free, open to the public, and fun for all ages. The music and merriment will start at 1 p.m.

Join us February 22 & 23 at the CenterPlace Regional Event Center (2426 N. Discovery Place, Spokane Valley) for The Record Sale! 

The Record Sale will be two days of treasure hunting where you can find all kinds of music, movies, and gear. We've got a great variety of records, CDs, DVDs, tapes and more just waiting to find their way into your collection. To top it off, we will be holding a silent auction filled with a variety of equipment.

Get ready to move your feet at this Kids' Concert: the Celtic Dance Party with Floating Crowbar! On March 7, at 1 p.m., at the Riverside Place Auditorium, kids young and old will shake a leg to the high-energy mix of traditional and contemporary Irish music from Spokane's premiere Irish band. 

Spokane Public Radio is accepting donations for the 2020 Record Sale until February 7. 

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.
