You're invited to another awesome Siskiyou Folk & Bluegrass Festival!
Yes, although this popular local festival was initially cancelled this year due to the C-19 pandemic, KXCJ stepped in and we moved it over to 105.7FM!!

This will be a very special edition of our long-running weekly show, Smokin' Bluegrass, and it's happening this Thursday, June 25th, from 6-9pm.

We'll be featuring live conversations with Festival bands throughout the show!

The Trainmaster (DJ for Smokin' Bluegrass) and Caveman, (from Keep It Local) will be your hosts!

Catch it all on 105.7 here in the Illinois Valley, and of course, streaming on everywhere else!

KXCJ and Cave Junction Farmers' Market 6th Annual Chili Cook-Off POSTPONED!

Hi there, Radio People!

Late-breaking news here from our partner, the Cave Junction Farmers' Market-- the CJFM Board of Directors, after much discussion and deliberation, has decided to postpone our big joint fundraiser, the 6th Annual Chili Cook-Off (set for this Friday March 13th), in light of the ongoing public health concerns regarding large public events, and this morning's order from Oregon Governor Kate Brown that all public gatherings over 250 people must be canceled for the next four weeks, throughout the state.

I apologize for the last-minuteness of this announcement, but it is the world we are living in, suddenly.

We certainly hope to re-schedule this very popular community festival at a better time in the near future, and i'm very grateful to everyone who put so much effort and love into planning and staging this event!

Let's take good care of each other!

5th Annual Chili Cook-Off, Friday, March 15th!!!

Join us for a fabulous time of eating great food and reuniting with friends this Friday, March 15th, 6-9 pm at the Kerby Belt Building, 24353 Redwood Highway, in downtown Kerby! ...just like past years, it's an all-you-can-eat chili and cornbread feast for a $5 to $20 pay-what-you-can donation at the front door.

This is our annual super-fun and very important shindig for both the Cave Junction Farmers' Market and KXCJ-LP, Illinois River Valley Community Radio. We put 'em together because what's more fun than helping out one of our valley's most-loved community-building projects? Helping TWO of 'em at once, of course!

We'd love to have YOU there, and if you're able and willing, here's a few ways to help:

cook up a BIG POT OF CHILI (about 2 gallons, please) ...homemade in any persuasion: traditional, vegetarian, with or without beans,spicy or mild!
make a DESSERT
or VOLUNTEER at the party (...and you eat for free!)

donate a SILENT AUCTION ITEM (handmade crafts, gift certificates, useful tools, art, unique delectables, etc.)

There's still just enough time to enter *your* crockpot of chili, or donate something for the auction!

please e-mail:

Come on over to enjoy the food, meet new friends, and help judge the best chilis in the Illinois Valley!

(Oh, and by the way, one more reason to come: for the first time ever in this world, our brand-new KXCJ t-shirts will be there for sale, at the bevvie table!)

See y'all there!
