CARPINTERIA'S ONLY LOCAL RADIO NEWS (Top of every hour every weekday)

Local headlines and news stories are part of the everyday program lineup at Carpinteria Valley Radio.

We are the only local source for breaking and ongoing news at or near Carpinteria.


Longtime Carpinterian David Jay brought us one of the first-ever popular podcasts about Carp, and it lives on every weekend on Carpinteria Valley Radio. The show is available as a podcast on every popular podcast service so you can check out past episodes, and we also occasionally feature David's original program, "The World's Safest Podcast." Recorded all over town. Listen and soak in the vibe.


We feature the music of California almost every hour of every day, and it doesn't get any more California than the Grateful Dead. Host/expert/wizard Ardas joins us from Ojai every Sunday evening with four glorious hours of unreleased Dead music and much more. 


Local realtor Mark Mutal takes his microphone into the heart of Carpinteria and talks to some of the town's most interesting people. From up and coming entrepreneurs to elected representatives, Mark and his guests give us a glimpse of why the people of Carp feel so lucky to live here.
