Our first KPBX Kids' Concert planned for this spring is a broadcast of Musicfest Northwest. We intended for a live broadcast with musicians in our studio, but due to recent events cancelling this years Musicfest Northwest, we will be playing highlights of previous festivals, which we have been broadcasting since around 1994. Tune in from May 13 to 15, between 10 a.m. and noon on KPBX 91.1 FM or stream on your device to hear some beautiful music played by young musicians from our community. These broadcasts will be hosted by Verne Windham. 

Join Spokane Public Radio & Spokane Bikes as we participate in Bike Everywhere Month in May. Spokane Bikes is an organization committed to increasing awareness and participation in bicycle commuting. We invite you to get on your bike and ride to work, errands, and everywhere. Bike commuting provides a variety of benefits to commuters, our environment and the community as a whole. You can find more information about this event here.

From the Spokane Bicycle Club on COVID-19 news and Bike Everywhere Month:

As part of our 40th Anniversary year SPR planned to present NPR journalist David Folkenflik at the Bing Crosby Theater on Tuesday, March 31, at 7:30 p.m. Unfortunately, NPR has canceled all nonessential travel for their staff due to the coronavirus, so David Folkenflik will not be coming to Spokane on March 31.


Tickets purchased via TicketsWest.com or over the phone will be refunded automatically to the credit card originally used for the ticket purchase.


Thanks to our listeners, and event donors Bella Terra Garden Homes; Sam Rodell, Architects; Exbabylon IT Solutions; and The Journal of Business for their support and understanding.


We hope to present David Folkenflik, NPR’s media correspondent and host of On Point in the next year. We appreciate your understanding and will keep you posted at SpokanePublicRadio.org with the latest news and updates for future events.


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.
