Sound Advice: Holiday Edition


If you think—as I do—that music is the best part of the holidays, here’s an event you won’t want to miss. On Thursday, Dec. 4, Capital Public Radio will take its popular “Sound Advice” show out of the studio and into the Crocker Art Museum, where host Beth Ruyak and other contributors will share their favorite holiday tunes—and introduce some new and rare recordings, too. Will it be James Brown’s “Funky Christmas”? Something by Mannheim Steamroller, Vince Guaraldi or Elvis? You’ll just have to go to the Crocker to find out.

But reserve your tickets in advance: Space is limited for this special event. To do so, visit, call (916) 808-1182, or just swing by the Crocker’s admission desk.
