Randy Kinkel believes that we all need a little art in our lives!  That's why he's so passionate about the Music he shares with you on KBACH. He's proud to be a Longtime Phoenician and KBAQ Veteran--one of the KBACH "pioneers" who first signed on the station in 1993.  He keeps you company Saturdays 2-8 and Sundays 10-4. Randy is also host of the popular "Mozart Buffet" Sunday at noon, and "This Week in Classical Music". heard Tuesdays at 6 pm.  He also picks most of the music you hear during the week.

Randy's connections to local arts run deep; he's an artist and former gallery owner whose Red Dog Gallery provided a venue for emerging artists and craftspeople; he partners with locally-owned Changing hands Bookstore in Tempe every month with "Book Notes" a book club for music lovers, when he reviews a book hand-picked for lovers of the arts, heard the first Friday of every month at 6 and again the following Sunday at 2 pm; it's also available on the website, kbaq.org.  His artwork can be seen at "The Artery" at 7th and Indian School in Phoenix, "Spiritude" in San Tan Valley, and at his facebook page, facebook.com/randy.kinkel. His latest obsessions are vintage audio equipment, gardening and playing trumpet. 

Randy and his wife Nancy share their lives with a brindle lab/pitbull mix named Mitzvah and a Whippet/Pit named Matzoball, both rescued from the mean streets of Phoenix.  Both two-legged family members are volunteers with local no-kill shelter AAWL (Arizona Animal Welfare League) and they strongly support animal rescue organizations. Several of Randy's art pieces have been donated and auctioned off to help raise money for Valley spay/neuter programs and shelters.
