Past Events

Thanks to everyone who came to the Recordings & Videos Sale, the biggest two-day music and film sale in the Inland Northwest. The Lincoln Center (Lincoln & Sharp) was buzzing on Feb. 20 and 21 as visitors searched through thousands of records, CDs, DVDs and more. All funds benefit Spokane Public Radio.

Hundreds of members, listeners, and well-wishers came to the Grand Opening of SPR's Fire Station No. 3 on January 23, a few days after Spokane Public Radio's 36th Anniversary.

Tours continued almost non-stop from noon until after 4 p.m. The building was mostly silent around 1 p.m. as the guests crowded into the new Performance Studio to witness the "Plug-In" Ceremony.

Spokane Public Radio began to celebrate 36 years with a special KPBX Kids’ Concert featuring the Spokane British Brass Band on January 16. The hour-long, free concert took place at 1 p.m. in the Bing Crosby Theater, Downtown Spokane. Celebrating the birthday of SPR’s first station, KPBX, and the move to Fire Station No. 3, this Kids’ Concert embraced the glorious, vibrant, and exuberant soundscape of the large brass ensemble.

On Christmas Eve Spokane Civic Theatre presented the story of Frank Capra's beloved holiday film in a unique setting -- a 1940s-era radio play, complete with live sound effects and actors voicing multiple characters.

As ticket holders experience the one-night-only show live on Christmas Eve in the beautiful Bing Crosby Theater, the show streamed live on the internet to listeners through KPBX.org. Unfortunately, heavy snow at the tower site cut power and access on the afternoon of Dec. 24, and 91.1 FM was off the air for more than a day.

KPBX provided some relief from the effects of the Wind Storm with a FREE KPBX Kids' Concert Saturday, Nov. 21 at 1 p.m. The Bing Crosby Theater's full power and heat attracted around 200 people to the event featuring one of Spokane's hottest Bluegrass groups, Brown's Mountain Boys. 

Three members -- Mark Harding, Dan Gore and Kelly Bogan -- had played together for years in "Molly & Tenbrooks," and added the 'fiddle hotshot' Aaron Castilla to round out the quartet.
