Thirty miles down the coast from Occidental is Point Reyes Station, home of nifty little community FM KWMR (90.5A). The studios are actually located on Mesa Road, but the postal address is 11431 Shoreline Highway, suite 8. Point Reyes Station is also home to Cowgirl Creamery, a specialty cheesemaker best known for Mt. Tam, a nationally-distributed soft-ripened cow's milk cheese. A few miles down Mesa Road is the licensed site for booster KWMR-FM2, licensed to Inverness Park on the opposite side of Tomales Bay, but it was both inaccessible and off the air. (By the way, locals pronounce it “Point Rice” or “Race”, not the Spanish way.)
