If you wander around Bay Area cities, you know that street musicians are a dynamic part of the soundscape.

Lance Gardner spent some time meeting many of San Francisco's buskers. In this profile, we meet Ron, a trumpeter at Union Square.

<font face="&quot;arial," color="&quot;#222222&quot;"><font face="&quot;&quot;arial,&quot;" color="&quot;&quot;#222222&quot;&quot;">RON: I hope that I'm doing the work of God through music. I'm trying to play to him. Keeping my mind focused on Jesus, knowing that he can hear me. Because he can. </font> </font>
