CHARLES KENNEDY

Your congenial host since Dec. 2002, Charles is Napa born-and-bred, a graduate of Napa High (class of '62) and a product of Napa Junior College (as it was called back then).

Charles has worked in both TV (alongside the very young Jon Milller) and radio. He's also spent a good many years as an educator, at both the prep and college levels.

Don't get him started talking about cats, unless you've been sleep-deprived of late. He can be pretty darned communicative on a good many other things, though, such as the Broadway musical, jazz musicians, mystery novelists, comparative linguistics, great art, classical composers and their music, and European travel.
