Every year KWMR is host to a number of events that are part of the cultural scene in West Marin. Some have even become “West Marin traditions.”
Sweethearts of the Radio is KWMR’s annual Valentine’s concert for everyone, featuring a lengthy lineup of accomplished and beloved singer-songwriters under the spotlight. Each year this long-running show grows stronger, and the station really loves hosting this special community evening of entertainment. As always, a tempting array of sweets, tarts, and refreshments will be available for purchase, as well as KWMR swag and goodies. Click here for info on Sweethearts 2017.
Spring Pledge Drive is when we bring you a week of special, cross-show programming and we ask you to pick up your phone or go online and become one of the many individual contributors to KWMR. We are a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit independent media organization, so your donations are not only tax-deductible, but absolutely vital to our existence. KWMR springs into action during pledge drive; hosts collaborate on unique shows, we offer special premium “thank you” gifts for your pledges, and community businesses and members donate delicious meals for everyone to enjoy. It’s fun to pick up the phone, donate, and join us for pledge drive to keep KWMR broadcasting strong!
Eat My Heart Out Supperclub: Imagine a dinner party where every tale spun across the table was kindling for the courses to come. EMHO is a storytelling dinner party pairing live performance with a menu whose design is directly inspired by the stories themselves, creating a five-course meal of edible metaphors. Eat My Heart Out has been profiled in SF Weekly, New York Magazine, and now the annual show graces the Peace Barn stage in Bolinas, in order to raise money for community radio in West Marin.

The “Daggie” Golf Tournament: Get in to your summer swing at the San Geronimo Valley Golf Course! KWMR’s annual golf tournament is a great way to get on the green for a day and support your local radio station to boot. Sponsorship opportunities, a hole-in-one mega prize, “inventive” team attire, fun awards and excellent food and drink are always features of the Daggie! Click here for info on the 2017 Daggie.
Fall Pledge Drive is the “big one” for KWMR: it’s when we need to raise the bar a bit higher and secure the funding necessary to keep the station running. You can always count on KWMR to bring you one-off pledge-drive specials, all-out entertainment, and thank-you gifts you can’t find anywhere else. Stop in to the station, grab a snack donated by our business partners and friends, and come see what community radio is all about. We always need your generous support! Pledge drive is the best time to make a donation.
The Winter House Concert is an unique gathering during the holidays. KWMR arranges for award-winning musicians to play an intimate show at a beautiful, tucked-away West Marin residence. Welcome the winter season with a spread of local gourmet treats, and celebrate community radio.
