Anniversary Mini-Series

Throughout 2022, KVNO is bringing you a monthly Arts@830 series that celebrates the first 50 years of KVNO and interviews the people who did — and will — make it happen. Listen to their conversations below.

Celebrate with us


Dean Michael Hilt

Dean Michael Hilt is the Dean of the College of Fine Arts and Media at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. He once served as KVNO’s General Manager and has always been a fan. Sherry Kennedy Brownrigg interviewed Dean Hilt about the role KVNO – a community outreach of UNO –  plays on the campus of the UNO.


Dave Ogden + Norm Herzog

Dave Ogden and Norm Herzog worked at KVNO in the early days of our existence and have great tales from those days.


KVNO Morning Show Hosts Over the Years

Before Otis Twelve, there was Frank Bramhall, Dale Munson and Scott Blankenship, three KVNO morning show hosts who made a big impact on KVNO listeners. We hear from all three of them in this special 50th anniversary Arts@830.


Tom Becka and the Magic of Radio

Tom Becka was only a student when he worked at KVNO, but he has fond memories of his time here. Our thanks to Jeff Koterba for recording this interview and Gabriel Escalera for producing.
