Rebecca has been a frequent guest on NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross, as well as Jim Cullum's live radio show Riverwalk: Live At The Landing, and a guest on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion. "Rebecca Kilgore has gradually refined her vocal gifts and stands now, I believe, as a leading interpreter of America's classic popular songs. Her easy, musicianly way of bringing forth each tune's best qualities is very special, carefully nurtured artistry." - Dick Hadlock, author of Jazz Masters of the Twenties and host of The Annals of Jazz, on KCSM-FM San Mateo, California.
