Tonight at 9pm, join special guest David Petri and Jon Gonzales for a sweet night of live on-air acoustic lovin', along with a smattering of songs written by local songwriters from the North Bay!  

Our guest this week on Art of the Song is three-time Woody Guthrie Award winning singer/songwriter, KC Clifford. Music has always been a guiding force in KC’s life, and her talent and love of performing on stage revealed itself at an early age. She was two when she first sang in public and composed her first song at age seven. KC Clifford studied opera at the prestigious Indiana University School of Music, but found her true voice in folk music while earning a degree in vocal performance at Belmont University in Nashville.

Listen to Connections with Michelle Stewart - now on every Thursday night from 7 pm to 9 pm. Michelle plays a wide variety of music spanning many decades and styles. It's not uncommon to hear Patsy Cline and Bruno Mars in the same show. Occasionally Connections follows a theme for two hours, and other times it's a fun surprise.

He spoke with KRCB news director Steve Mencher about how he plans to turn around the culture of the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office  by providing leadership to the force.
