KDVS FUNDRAISER 2011 April 18th - 24th

The KDVS annual fundraiser kicked off at midnight. Our goal this year is $60,000. We have wonderful gifts for those who pledge. Some examples of our premiums are gift certificates, DJ made crafts (hint hint), sticker and button packs, DJ created CD compilations, t-shirts, art, & unique things like having a DJ spin records at your epic party or hosting your own radio show for a mere $100 donation.
We have over 70 different types of programming on KDVS. We have sports, news (local and international), shows about science. Musically we have gospel, blues, classical, jazz, soul, international, indie, hip hop, metal, electronic, punk, hardcore, garage, experimental, shoegaze, dance, and everything in between. Yes, the economy sucks and there are so many other great causes needing our money. However, the fight to keep free-form community driven radio alive is now harder than ever with the budget crisis and the deep pockets of corporate radio. Please help keep us on the air. KDVS belongs to you, me, and the world. 
Visit to donate online, or listen in at and call (530) 754-5387 or toll free 1-877-399-5387. KDVS radio that delivers.

In Spite Of It All, Things Are Alright

The economy sucks, my job is boring, I've got family drama, I miss my husband, I'd like to be fit and tan, but I still have this bright and hopeful feeling swelling in my chest. Is it the warmer weather? Is it a lack of PMS? Well whatever it is, I like it!

Frank Black, I Love the Way You Think

Vocals: Dee Dee - Dum Dum Girls
Guitar: Jarvis Taveniere - Woods
Drums: Jeremy Earl - Woods
Guitar: JB Townsend - Crystal Stilts
Bass: Mike Sniper - Blank Dogs

I'm terrible about always looking at what is is behind me, both literally and figuratively. Sure, we can learn from history and try not to make the same mistakes, but I seem to take it to the extreme. If I've been hurt I make damn sure to not be hurt again. The juxtaposition in my heart and mind between my core personality (humanitarian) and my deep fear of rejection and humiliation causes me a great deal of anxiety. However, I've started to convince myself that if I don't look back, the "monster" really isn't there.

Brilliant Colors

I am absolutely in love with this band. I will finally have the chance to see them play live this coming Saturday . Yipee!

This record is amazing. Listen and decide for yourself. If you are in the Sacramento area, come out to their show at The Hub on Sunday 5/8/11.

Esben and the Witch - Marching Song

This song is haunting my mind...

Revenge of the Handlebar Mustache

I am now co-hosting with my pal Calamity Janie on her KDVS radio show. We play a lot of punk, garage, and rock n' roll. I've added a splash of shoegaze and surf inspired indie music to the mix.
