KCRW Santa Barbara’s Morning Edition host Lisa Osborn welcomed popular local columnist Richard Mineards to the show on Friday. Mineards’ weekly “Montecito Miscellany” column, which showcases good causes, society events and local celebrity news is one of the most widely read columns in Santa Barbara.

Mineards dished on Montecito resident Oprah Winfrey (is the television mogul returning to network TV?), and provided details on philanthropist Michael Hammer’s go cart crash. In this ‘extended play’ version of the interview, you’ll also hear about another honor for the producers behind “Lutah” the documentary about pioneering Santa Barbara architect, Lutah Maria Riggs.
