Arts Magazine wants to cover it all in the Kansas City area, from professional stage productions to community and eclectic productions. This KKFI program covers the expensive art galleries as well as the small out of the way places where the new trends begin to surface.  Program host Michael Hogge wants Kansas City to learn what it takes to be a vibrant arts town.

Past guests have included George Keithly, an award-winning stage director and Emmy winning TV director. Kansas City’s own big band and jazz singer, Marilyn Maye was also a guest.

Michael wants the public to know what is going on in their town and how they can participate in it!
