KRCB Morning Show with Brian Griffith

Weekday Mornings, 9AM-Noon

On top of great music to elevate the mood of your weekday mornings, Brian has artist interviews and live in-studio performances as well as hourly NPR news.

Here's what we know about Brian:  Brian's musical career started many years ago not far from his current home in Petaluma. He played in bands throughout his young life performing all over Northern California. After a move to Los Angeles in the early 1980s, his focus shifted from onstage to in print. He became a music journalist writing for industry publications like HITS and BAM. This led to a chance to write and produce radio shows for some of the largest networks in the US. Being over L.A. in the mid-nineties, Brian returned to the North Bay and took a seat in front of the microphone. His easy repartee with artists shines through during KRCB's Morning Show each weekday.  Recent visits include Steve Earle, Kenny Loggins, newcomer Jade Jackson, and local favorite David Luning. His love of music, both old and new, keeps the show fresh and informative. Tune in Monday thru Friday at 9 am.

Amilia K Spicer will be stopping by Studio A to chat with Brian Griffith, Wednesday morning in the 10:00 am hour.  

From her website:

"It may be her haunting, husky voice that first grabs a listener, the way it glides over melodies like smoke, but it’s the songwriting that Spicer really wants you to hear - The turns of phrases, the wistful poetry, the smart (and sometimes smart aleck) lyrics. They are intimate and visual, like walking into a movie. There is an edge, a turbulence, in many of the places Amilia writes about, but not all of them.
