Summer may be coming to a close but at KVWJ, we see it as a time to reflect on the fun we have had.  We participated in four parades celebrating the culture and heritage of south valley.  Better weather couldn't have been asked for Paradise City's Trout and Berry Days.
 
 
Wellsville City celebrated their Founder's Day festivities on a rather showery Labor Day morning but the showers abated just in time for a great celebration!  KVWJ was there and we are proud to be a part of the lives of our listeners, their families, and our communities!

Perhaps you've already heard:  Our Sunday Easy Listening lineup is making a change for the better.  A large library of late 30's and 1940's music is being put together and rolled out for your listening enjoyment from midnight Saturday to 6am and from 3pm to midnight Sunday.  We hope you enjoy hearing it as much as we are thrilled to be assembling it for you.  As one listener put it:  "It's exactly what I would expect to be coming our of my radio on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

July was a busy month for J-95!  In addition to broadcasting the Hyrum City Patriotic Program and the music for the Hyrum City Fireworks show, KVWJ was out and about in both the Hyrum 4th of July Parade...
                                                     ...as well as the Mendon City 24th of July Festivities.  Look for us soon at the Paradise Trout And Berry Days Celebrations and the Wellsville Founder's Day Parade!

"Into A Child's Mind" is a new feature on KVWJ.  Tune in at 8am Saturdays for a half hour of children's music and storytelling.  
 
You know, Mom and Dad, you might want to join in the listening just for fun!

Hot Wheels in Hyrum, Hyrum City's annual museum fundraiser and car show took place on Saturday.  We met with many listeners who shared their thoughts on KVWJ and we enjoyed the opportunity to interact on such a beautiful day.

J-95 was there providing public address services and music.  Food, prizes, and fun - all for a great cause!

Moving through the "Doldrums of January" is never very fun.  In the meantime, here is a snapshot of the KVWJ tower at the transmitter site on a spring day reminding us that warmer days are coming....eventually....and that "Summer Means Fun"! 

 -----------------------------------

 
J-95 is now playing a selection of seasonal favorites each hour through December 25th culminating in a 36-hour music and memories special beginning at noon on Christmas Eve and a two-hour Canyon Breeze special at noon on Christmas Day.  From all of us in the KVWJ family, we wish all a very Happy Holiday season and a prosperous New Year! 

 ------------------------------------

 
As KVWJ moves into its next five years, we anticipate the need for an improved facility with greater public access and exposure.  A facility which will allow us to grow and serve the South Valley with additional program offerings and increased coverage.  This will not be an easy process - it will involve cooperation on many levels within our community and hopefully, with the support of our listeners, local businesses, and Hyrum City, we can make this dream become a reality.  If you are interested in playing a part in the next chapter of KVWJ, please contact us.
