Talent behind Conversations Live with Vicki St. Clair
It takes a village.
For 12+ years Conversations LIVE aired live from Hubbard Radio’s KKNW with KKNW Studio Producer, Eric Reidar — the talent behind the show’s audio quality, and the maestro who kept us LIVE on-air. Doesn’t matter how unusual the topic of the show is, Eric always found bumper music to fit. He’s now also the station’s Operations Manager, and often plays venues around Seattle and the Pacific Northwest with his band.
Meet also, the unflappable David Vandver, Producer and Writer (with Ms. Zoe the boxer). Although he and Vicki have met only once, David’s written guest blurbs and updated the website show schedule for the past 10 years. In addition to writing screenplays, David’s done standup comedy … which explains why his late-night, rambling emails are often hilarious! David now produces Conversations Live’s weekly podcasts, and is currently going to school to become a counselor.
Oh, one more. Border Collie, Dylan Thomas, Vicki’s VBFF (very best furry friend). He hangs out at Vicki’s creative studio every day and keeps things calm when deadlines loom.
