It's September

Say, do you remember dancing in September?

We do!

Cool weather, crisp air, orange & red leaves, and warm beverages are making their comeback, and we'll ALL be dancing in September again!

But first...


What happened in August?

Cascade Days 2018 - Pie a-la-mode booth!

On August 18 - Pie à la Mode returned for another year! Folks were able to come eat some nice COOL treats and learn all about the station, how it operates, volunteer opportunities, and other ways to support local radio. A HUGE thank you to everyone who volunteered their time/energy/resources and to everyone who stopped by for pie! We were able to raise $363 this year!

Greg Sweet's Music Mix

On August 10th, Greg sat down with the winner of the 8th season of NBC's The Voice, Sawyer Fredericks before a performance with Wolfchild at Bellingham's Firefly Lounge. Check out a pre-Interview video with the pair on KSVR's Facebook page.

Aussie singer/songwriter and slide guitar player Kara Grainger was a guest on Greg Sweet's show on Friday Aug. 31st. Later that evening she was at The Conway Muse. To learn more about her, check out her website! www.karagrainger.com

Music Mix with Greg Sweet airs on both KSVR and KSVU from 2-4pm on Fridays.

DJ Marren has a lively month planned!

On September 1st, The Marren Yarbrough Show will be winding up a series of interviews with health guru Tom Torrey, who's been talking about health and healing. Tom works free of Church to those needing to regain lost health through exercise and "nutrient fence foods."

On September 8th and 15th, "political iconoclast" Tim Grady will continue his talks on secret societies and the exposure of the Nexium sex cult and its ties to child sex trafficking and Hollywood celebs.

September 29th we'll get to listen to "Escapades" and have a remote viewing with "Alias."

Also, this month, writer and off-grid resident Josiah Garcia will be talking on various subjects including "Big Pharma."

For The Inspirational Hour with Soul (Sunday mornings at 9am), we'll continue to learn more about the "Divine Interface" and what ancient scripture tells us about prophecies for "end times" and the world of light to come.

On September 2nd, DJ Pat Donovan will be covering for DJ Marren, so take note!

Help us prep for the 8th Annual Harvest Fest & Halloween Dance!

Saturday Oct. 27th - the tradition continues!

We'll be back at the Marblemount Community Hall for a potluck, dancing, and community fun! Undecided and Jumbled Pie will return to help us dance the night away! Music is planned to start at 7pm.

The raffle and silent auction will be happening again this year, but we DO NEED HELP!

We need auction items as well as people willing to help us man these events!

We'll also always take volunteers for set-up/clean-up in general. If interested you can call us at 360-853-8588 and leave a message (with return phone number!) or you can send us an email at ksvu90.1fm@gmail.com.

KSVU Can't Survive Without You!

Your donations keep the lights on and the transmitter going!

Turbulent seas may be in the forecast for KSVU and KSVR. Now, more than ever we need your support to pay our bills so that we can continue operating. As our usual funding sources run dry, we are in desperate need of recurring donations, volunteers, and folks with grant-writing and grant application knowledge. If you think you can help us, PLEASE contact the station via email, phone, or by dropping by in person!
