Listener Supported Radio

Programs A-Z

KWMR's programming reflects the wide variety of interests of our volunnteer programmers, and reflects the character and nature of the people and places of West Marin. All hosts, whether of music or talk shows, regularly bring on guests, principally from our West Marin villages, but also from around the Bay Area and the world.

Between 8 am and midnight, KWMR airs about two hours of music to every one hour of talk. We cover music of almost all genres: Americana/Bluegrass, Celtic, Classical, Latin, Jazz & Swing, Blues, Alt Rock, World, Lounge, and Funk. We even have a show highlighting just the new releases in our music library. Bringing live performances on-air is part of the fun for music hosts and listeners!

Our interview hosts cover culture, politics, environment and ecology, agriculture, literature, spirituality and psychology, health and science, the performing arts, parenting issues... with about 6 hours a week of Spanish-language and bi-lingual music and talk shows.

KWMR has a process for training new programmers in the technical skills and interview/host skills needed for the live shows. Programmers who become competent in these areas can then go on to learn audio recording and editing in the production studio, field recording, news production, and remote broadcasts using phone lines and RPU gear.
