    Greetings KPND-

    I am a current Outdoor Education instructor for an International School located in Dalian, China. I have been living in China for over a year now. Before moving internationally, I lived in Sandpoint for a handful of years. I recollect my time in Sandpoint very fondly. It was where I first learned to ski, where I grew an even deeper appreciation of nature and the wilderness and where I spent some very formative years of my life. Most importantly, I fell in love with a beautiful Sandpoint woman while I was there. She taught me some of the most beautiful lessons of life. One of our favorite activities together would be to go on drives and hike mountains around north Idaho. Inevitably, we would always have KPND on the radio and we would jam together.

    Since my time working in China, I have always tuned into KPND for the good music, the weather reports and the local news. It makes me feel somewhat grounded in this big world. I always look forward to hearing Vic’s voice come on the broadcast in the mornings because that means its nearly time for me to go to bed here in China. Thank you to your radio station for making me feel close to Sandpoint and for helping me remember such a special Sandpoint lady named Callie.

    Keep up the good work!

  3. Ron Andrews

    I am looking for your station/broadcast on a Grace Digital Internet radio that uses the Reciva radio station listing and just wondering if your station is listed on that service. I have searched using your call sign KPND and 95.3 with no luck then looked under the Alternative genre but no success.

    I have to say it, I listen to your station hours a day at home and in the car. I love everything about it-except for the guy on the sports segment of the show. He treats Vic like she does not know her sports. I like what she adds to the show, and handles his subjective knowledge that he seems to consider superior knowledge, with grace.
    I find it offensive when guys act this way about sports, when Most of their input is their personal opinion and the minority of objectivivity is crammed down other’s throat while putting themselves above others who are willing to talk sports. Good job Vic for letting it roll off…the other guy may be your friend but as a listener, he just seems pompous and disrespectful.

    Awesome! I just found your site, I have heard KPND back in the old days.. (1997) and I was trynig to see if Uncle Larry was still in radio, and he’s at KPND! Loved Uncle Larry on KEZE back in the early 90’s! Right on KPND! And Sandpoint/ CDA is heaven!

    KPND is the best radio station ever, which is why I became a VIP member during the first days the new web site was up and running. I am a daily listener, I am curious about your newest contest for VIP members (also your last, with the golf clubs), from the way it sounds, it is for NEW VIP members only? My husband says it is for all VIP members it is just that the site is new. which is correct? If it is only for new VIP members, isn’t that a little unfair to your loyalist of fans, that don’t need a bribe to become a fan/member?

      Hi Vesta. All of our VIP/web contests include ALL members, not just the new ones signing up. Thanks for being a loyal listener.

        Hey Marie, hope you are doing well! My name is Michael Krahn. I won the travelers rest package, and thanks for that. However; have not received gas card yet, if it hasn’t mailed yet I would like to gift that to Christine C. Sincerely, Michael Krahn…

    Could you let me know when that house flipping ad is out of rotation? I’ll be tuning out until then….just can’t take it anymore. ..

  11. Jennifer

    I love that there is finally a station that plays Indie! All of the other stations in Spokane have been playing nothing but classic rock or 80s. Thank you so much for providing an alternative!

  12. Maks

    Hi! My name is Maks and I am a musician living in The Netherlands.

    I have been playing as a drummer in rock bands for a big part of my life.

    After the splitting up of my most recent band in 2012, I went on a small tour through the USA as a stand-in drummer in a blues-rock band. During this trip I decided I was going to write my own material and see where this could lead to…

    The learning curve was pretty steep, I must say. Besides learning how to play a bit of decent guitar and keyboards, I also had to cope with my vocals. Perhaps my greatest challenge was to find my singing voice :)…

    However, my hard work paid off and I am very proud to have finished my first solo CD “3Ft No Diving”, which is already available in a number of web shops via CDbaby.

    You can listen to the tracks at http://WWW.MAKSAGENCY.COM

    If you would like to receive a CD by mail or the digital tracks by Wetransfer, feel free to let me know.

    I am quite sure that you receive loads of mail in any form and shape, but I would really appreciate it, if you could find the time to listen to the CD and let me know what you think of it.

    I was listening in my car today (Sep 15) about 2.10 pm. I’d like to know the female artist and name of her song. It was the song that preceded The Fixx’s “One Thing Leads to Another”. Thx in advance.

    FYI – love your station!

  14. Alan Wilson

    What was the name of the Pearl Jam song you played around 10:15 this morning? I’ve heard it more than once on your station but have never heard the title. It sounds so much like While We Cry by Kenny Wayne Shepard. Thanks.

  15. Terry W. Shaver

    Absolutely no other station that compares to KPND! I’m almost 70, a musician for most of my life and this is the best format I have ever heard! (I used to travel extensively and I never found any other music format that is as good!
    Thanks !
    terry w. shaver

    ps. (if anyone there is a Rush fan, they should check out a new band from LA called YYNOT ! Great band and great people!)

    1. mariemccallister

      Thank you so much for the kind words. I think everyone here is a Rush fan…we’ll check it out!

      Have a great week,
      Marie McCallister

    On your main page, there’s a box on the right side that says “KPND VIP Club – sign up now!” When I click it, I get a 404, page not found. Gosh, so easy to sign up…

  17. Diane DeLong

    You shouldn’t broadcast news that isn’t updated- for example today on 11/22/17 in the AM it your newsguy reported that a man was wanted from Lewiston who was involved in a double homicide. In fact the guy had been apprehended and arrested on Tuesday 11/21/17 . I’m not sure if you are pre-recording these news bytes but it really isn’t newsworthy if if isn’t current information.

    1. mariemccallister

      Thanks for the info. Normally, the news breaks are recorded about an hour before they air. It could be that he just didn’t have the undated info..

  20. MaryJoJohnson

    Good morning!

    My husband and I caught your station on December 14th as we drove over the Idaho Panhandle on our way to Bellingham, Washington. We were able to listen quite a distance past Ritzville, WA, and heard the entire Radio Deli which highlighted all things monkey related! LOVED! IT! 

    It was truly a delight to hear an INDEPENDENT station that plays fabulous music not heard on mainstream radio.

    THANK YOU to Blue Sky Broadcasting, and to all of its fine on-air artists. I can now enjoy your station 24/7 online.

    Merry Christmas, and may 2018 bring great things to you all!

    1. mariemccallister

      Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to write. Happy to have you as a new listener and Happy New Year!
