FREE KPRI 102.1
Private Listener Concerts

 San Diego’s 102.1 KPRi is owned by two guys.
Private Listener Concerts are local radio station, KPRI 102.1’s  way of saying THANKS for spending time with KPRi.   San Diego’s 102.1 KPRi is owned by two guys. That’s it. No big corporation, no Big Brother telling them what to do, nor what to play. Just two guys who love radio, Bob Hughes and Jonathan Schwartz who bought KPRi in 1996.

You might recognize Bob, as he hosts nights and some weekend shifts. KPRi has a staff of about thirty, many of whom have worked at the station for 10 years or more. The one thing everyone at KPRi has in a common is a HUGE passion for both San Diego and music!

The Private Listener Concerts happen randomly all over San Diego. They are free and intimate - Wanna go? It is simple, just click here to go to their webpage.

Oma loves attending these Private Listener Concerts and was fortunately enough to be picked for two such events in last year.

Maia Sharp played at the Apotheque Spa in Oceanside.
On March 13, 2013, Oma was introduced to artist Maia Sharp at the Apotheque Spa in Oceanside. If you do not know Maia Sharp’s music – you must check her out.

In addition to her solo career, Maia has written songs for and collaborated with several country and pop musicians including Cher, Trisha Yearwood, Terri Clark, Bonnie Raitt, Edwin McCain, and Art Garfunkel. This hour-long concert was amazing and made me a huge fan!

Ms. Sharp and her “band” - Linda Taylor — at Apotheque Spa.
Oma bought two of her albums – Echo and Change the Ending. What a great experience – I was able to take a picture with Ms. Sharp and both she and her “band” - Linda Taylor signed my cd’s! Remember this awesome experience was free!

Then on May 24, 2013, a friend and Oma had a wonderful time at the "Family of the Year" Private Listener Concert! Family of the Year joined San Diego radio station 102.1 KPRi at the beautiful Estancia La Jolla Resort & Spa!


Yup we were there for free! Thanks so much KPRI!

Unfortunately, Oma has not been picked to attend any 2014 KPRI 102.1 Private Listener Concerts.  Nevertheless, I visit their website weekly to sign up for the drawing.

Rest assured that as soon as I am privileged to attend another Private Listener Concert  - Oma will posted the experience on "Oma Loves U!"
