Interviewed in the KBBF Studio

Oct 26, 2018


Remember to vote November 6th! KBBF airs programs featuring news and views about Sonoma County and California, helping you vote for what is important to you and your community.

Women’s Spaces host Elaine B. Holtz points out, “This is the first time the city of Santa Rosa will be voting by districts and thesix candidates for the Santa Rosa City Council were interviewed in the [KBBF] studio…Each for about 16 minutes, and each interview appears as separate audio files.

The candidates and their districts are:

John Sawyer (2)

Lee Pierce (2)

Tom Swedhelm (6)

Victoria Fleming (4)

Dorothy Beattie (4)

Mary Watts (4)

Listen to the interviews online at 

You can also hear an interview with the newly elected Clerk-Recorder-Assessor-Registrar of Voters Deva Marie Proto for Sonoma County, who provides detailed information about voting and election procedures.

In last month's RadioLand column, we reported on some of the excellent sights and sounds at KBBF’s annual Trunk or Treat event. However, one reader read the piece and wrote in: 

There is no such thing as a "fifties Mercury Straight Eight." Mercury started in 1939 with a Flathead V8 and possibly a Straight 6. Never made a Straight Eight.

Dear Reader,

You are absolutely correct. The car in question was a Pontiac Straight-8 engine, an inline eight-cylinder engine produced by Pontiac from 1933 to 1954. Thanks for reading!
