“Midlife Mixtape” Hosted By Robin Bright
Robin’s “Midlife Mixtape” discusses aspects of living our best Gen X midlife…..parenting, relationships, careers, pop culture, insights, nostalgia, passions, and WAY more often than not…MUSIC!
Robin is the host of The Afternoon Mix from 3-6 on KVYN 99.3 The Vine. She is also a substitute teacher in the Napa Valley and a HUGE music lover…while simultaneously navigating empty nesting, being “stuck in the middle”, and everything else that goes along with it.

May 15, 2023: Angelo Moore is the frontman of and one of the main creative forces behind Fishbone...one of the best live bands of, certainly the 80's and 90's, but possibly ever. We discuss everything from the band's beginnings, to their hard to pinpoint musical style (Is it funk, ska, reggae, rock, metal, soul, or punk? The answer is YES), to what they've got going on lately including new music coming out, teaching a master class for kids, side projects, and touring again. He (and his mother, too!) were an absolute JOY to chat with! Enjoy!

About Robin Bright:
Northern California born and bred, Robin grew up in the South Bay where she lived until attending University of the Pacific and getting her teaching credential. She then moved back to the South Bay where she lived until moving up to Napa in 1999. She began her career teaching third grade in Cupertino in 1995 and had spent her years teaching Kindergarten through third grade and being a full-time mom until meeting the owners of the station, Will and Julissa Marcencia, who asked her if she might be interested in a new chapter. Being a HUGE music lover, having always been a “raised on the radio” kind of girl, and being in between teaching jobs, she jumped at the opportunity to try something new. A little mid-life reinvention never hurt anyone, right? She has loved being the Sales and Traffic Lead for Wine Down Media since the fall of 2019 and taking on being an on-air personality since the summer of 2020! You can still find her occasionally substitute teaching in the Valley because it’s a hard passion to quit.
You can probably find her playing with her 2 dogs, hanging out with her husband and 2 girls (teenagers now!), laughing with her girlfriends, wishing she were at the ocean, lake, or mountains, listening to most any and all music (but especially Bruce Springsteen), volunteering in the schools or community, singing loudly and poorly in her car, traveling near and far, enjoying a nice glass of Napa’s finest or an ice-cold beer, cheering on The Giants, watching old Audrey Hepburn movies, music documentaries, or HGTV, cruising around town on her groovy red scooter, and attending most any event her town and community put on.
The fact that she gets to talk on the radio for a living, still blows her mind.
