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.

Spokane Public Radio invites you to enjoy Sibling Revelry hosted by Verne Windham on KPBX 91.1, Saturday, May 15 at 1 p.m. 

SPR has a long tradition of presenting young performers on KPBX. For this KPBX Kids’ Concert you’ll hear four groups of family performers playing everything from  piano, violin, cello, viola and  trumpet in various family ensembles.  


Thanks to KPBX Kids’ Concert event donors: Harvard Park Children’s Learning Center North; Sayre, Sayre & Fossum, Attorneys; and Rocket Bakeries; with a grant funding from the Johnston-Fix Foundation.

Thank you so much to all who donated during our Spring fund week! Instead of a conventional fund drive, we held a fund week through one week of April. When you contributed to the station, your gift was matched by Challenge Grantors up to $30,000. We met our goal with room to spare and couldn't be more grateful to all our listeners who keep us supported and on air. The three stations of Spokane Public Radio can only bring you programming when you connect and contribute to keep SPR strong. Thank you!

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.
