The candidates and their districts are:

John Sawyer (2)

Tom Swedhelm (6)

Victoria Fleming (4)

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!
