Thanks to everyone who helped make the annual Fall Folk Festival a success, which kicked off Saturday, November 9 with a free concert broadcast live on KPBX from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Join SPR for this free concert at the Westminster Congregational United Church of Christ. The concert will feature the Spokane Area Youth Choirs and Le Donne Choir, and be hosted by SPR's Verne Windham. Hear these choirs raise their voices during this show called Open Doors. The concert will begin at 1 p.m. 

Grammy-winning composer and fiddler Mark O’Connor will be at the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox this winter, December 10 at 7:30 p.m. He has created several arrangements of Christmas classics and fashions a wondrous mixture of both instrumental and vocal music in bluegrass and other American music genres. Concertgoers will be treated to fresh takes on traditional songs with a few original compositions as well. 

On January 25 music from the Jazz Age, the Roaring 20’s to WWII, will be performed by The Zonky Jazz Band, lead 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.

Spokane Public Radio is now accepting donations for the 2020 Record Sale. 

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.
