KWMR West Marin Community Radio: Local & Live for 25!
It’s KWMR’s birthday this Spring, and we need your help – to level up! We’ve been local and live for 25 years. Now that we are old enough to rent a truck…and our frontal lobe has nearly developed…it’s time for us, as a community radio station, to mature…and ensure that we’re here for the long haul. Please join KWMR with a donation during our Spring Pledge Drive, April 21st through May 4th. With your help, we can meet the $70,000 fundraising goal! Also, we will be celebrating KWMR’s 25th Birthday on Thursday May 2nd, with some really unique, fun events – we hope you’ll join us for all the festivities. Your participation and support are what keep homegrown music, news, and emergency information flowing to West Marin and beyond. Thank you so much for your support – then, now, and into the future!
~ Past Events ~
FEBRUARY — ‘Sweethearts of the Radio’ (on hiatus) 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. Mark your calendars for Valentine’s Day Weekend.
~APRIL — 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!
MAY — West Marin Kids Who Rock Concert! (on hiatus) A showcase of talent, at Lagunitas Taproom in Petaluma.
MAY / JUNE — Eat My Heart Out Supperclub (on hiatus) 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. EMHO has been profiled in SF Weekly and New York Magazine; past performers include Frances McDormand, David Strathairn, Neshama Franklin, and KWMR’s Mia Johnson and crowd-favorite Richard Dillman.
JUNE (discontinued 2019+) — “Daggie” Golf Tournament (event has been retired) After 8 successful DAGGIE Golf Tournaments, KWMR will take a break from this beloved event. The closing of the San Geronimo Valley Golf Course has given us pause, and we will evaluate the future of KWMR golf – if you have feedback, please send it to Amanda Eichstaedt, our Executive Director at [email protected].
DECEMBER / JANUARY— The Winter House Concert (on hiatus) is a 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.
DECEMBER — Holiday Theatre Production (Winter 2023) It was a wonderful farewell “It’s A Wonderful Life” performance in December 2018 – West Marin’s rendition of the classic holiday radio play by Joe Landry, at Toby’s Feed Barn. In 2019 we performed Dickens’ sweet roasted chestnut of a story, “A Christmas Carol,”…featuring a familiar cast of locals, including Geoff Hoyle as Ebenezer Scrooge! Proceeds benefitted KWMR. Thanks to all who made these productions happen!
