Spokane Public Radio held an open house on Wednesday, December 6th from 4-6 pm. Visitors enjoyed snacks and beverages with staff and program producers, and toured the studios of KPBX, KSFC, and KPBZ in historic Fire Station No. 3.

Following the open house from 6-7 pm, we conducted a live call-in about programming across all three of our stations. General Manager Dr. Cary Boyce, Board Chair Jeff Fountain, Program Director Doug Nadvornick, and Music Director Verne Windham addressed listener’s calls live on the air.

On Saturday, February 10th, SPR staff and volunteers will host a record drop-off day from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Bring your gently used items down to 1229 N Monroe where staff and volunteers will be standing by to help.  Please park along the Fire Station on Sharp, or in the parking cutout on Monroe in front of the Kirby Vacuum shop.

The next SPR Record Sale is still a couple of months away, but we know that around the holidays is a great time to sort through boxes in the garage and do some downsizing. We appreciate you thinking of us with your gently used recording and video items! We will still have our big donation day in February as well.

How & What to Give to the KPBX Recordings & Videos Sale:

We accept equipment, vinyl records, 78 RPM records, 45 RPM singles, compact discs, DVD and Blu-ray discs, cassette tape, eight-track cartridges, reel-to-reel tapes, commercial VHS and Beta tapes, and sealed blank tapes. See details below.

We CANNOT accept home-recorded cassette tapes or CD-R recordings due to copyright issues.

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.
