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. We will let people know when we are ready to accept donations again. We apologize for any inconvenience but safety is a priority. Thank you for your interest in The Record Sale.

The Festival at Sandpoint

The Festival at Sandpoint is bringing live music back for its 39th annual season! From July 29 to August 8, the Festival will be holding concerts every Thursday through Sunday at War Memorial Field. Spokane Public Radio will be a media partner for the festivities.

Art on the Green

Mark your calendars for the 53rd Annual Art on the Green, which will be held July 30, 31, and August 1, on the grounds of North Idaho College. Spokane Public Radio will not have a booth this year, but will be a media partner for the event.


Art on the Green is one of the longest running Art Festivals in the Pacific Northwest. The festival began on the Rotary tennis courts (at the old McEuen playfield) in 1968 and has grown to encompass the beautiful green space on the campus of NIC bordering Coeur d’Alene Lake and the Spokane River.

Spokane County Library District presents author Lisa Napoli discussing The 24-Hour News Cycle & How It Created a World of News Junkies. Napoli has written a number of books including her most recent about the founding female journalists of NPR. This event will take place on Thursday, August 5 at 6:30 p.m. online. You can register for this online event at scld.org.

SpokeFest returns as a virtual event in 2021 for it’s 14th year with lots of routes chosen to fit all levels of cyclists from beginner to pro. You can choose your own or pick one of SpokeFest routes during this event, which will run from September to 12. SPR will not be doing an energizer station as in the past, but will be a media partner for the event. Find more information at SpokeFest.org

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.
