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.

The Swap Shop is heard every Saturday morning at 10. To call The Swap Shop: 707-255-5866; To Email The Swap Shop: swapshop@kvon.com or charlestekennedy@gmail.com

NOTE: The featured artist on the 9/19 show was Judy Collins. I played this song (Nightingale I) by her and then encouraged interested listeners to pursue the lyrics because of their message and their beauty. Here I provide those lyrics for you.
NIGHTINGALE I
by Judy Collins

Jacob’s heart bent with fear,
Like a bow with death for its arrow;
In Vain he searched for the final truth
To set his soul free of doubt.
Over the mountains he walked,
With his head bent searching for reasons;
Then he called out to God
For help and climbed to the top of a hill.
Wind swept the sunlight through the wheat fields,
In the orchard the nightingale sang,
While the plums that she broke with her brown beak,
Tomorrow would turn into songs.
Then she flew up through the rain
With the sun silver bright on her feathers,
Jacob put back his frowns and sighed and walked 
Back down the hill.
God doesn’t answer me and 
He never will.
