KVNF Radio stages Hotchkiss show as part of 30th birthday celebration
Paonia-based radio station KVNF celebrates 30 years of broadcasting to the Western Slope on Saturday, April 18, with a concert in Hotchkiss.
Singers Laura Love and Molly O’Brien and guests Orville Johnson and Rich Moore will perform at the Memorial Hall in downtown Hotchkiss.
“A lot of people have worked hard to make KVNF the quality station it is today and now it’s time to celebrate the fruits of all that labor,” according to a news release from the radio station.
Love is a contemporary folk-funk singer and bassist. She recently released her 11th CD, a collaboration with Johnson. In 2004, Love authored a memoir titled “You Ain’t Got No Easter Clothes.” It is about her mother’s mental illness and Love’s life in foster homes and homeless shelters.
O’Brien sings jazz, R&B, blues, gospel and roots music. She grew up listening to singers such as Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins and Bonnie Raitt. At the concert, she’ll sing in her duo act with her husband, Moore.
The show starts at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $25 the day of the show or can be purchased by calling KVNF during business hours at 527-4866 or 866-KVNF-NOW.
