Kevin Vance

Announcer/Operator; Host and Producer, A Patchwork Quilt

Kevin Vance created a program of folk music for KALW, A Patchwork Quilt, in October 1991.  He grew up in Berkeley during the 1960s and '70s and spent his years learning in public schools, community colleges, bookstores, libraries, and non-commercial radio stations, as well as from the people around him.  When he's not on the radio, then he's selling books, taking care of his family, listening to music, entering stuff into a computer, or taking a class.
