  1. KVMR today produced the 35th martin Luther King Jr celebration at the Nevada Theatre with the Bethel AME Choir from Marysville and Nevada Cities Trinity Community Choir. The Theater was packed and the music and stories were glorious.

    1. Yes, George Rebane’s writeup on John Lewis was a sight to behold! Of course, George comes from Simi Valley — so no surprise there.
