Katherine Charlton Calkins is returning to the position of chair of the music department at Mt. San Antonio College in fall, 2008, after having had a full-year sabbatical to study music by women composers. As a performer, she has a degree in classical guitar and has toured in Southern France and Tuscany playing lute with an early music group with her late, first husband Andrew Charlton. She also played percussion in the California University at Fullerton Wind Ensemble when they toured in Japan. She got her M.A. degree in music history and has continued with further graduate study in that same field. As a teacher, she started the guitar program at Mt. San Antonio College in 1974, where she continues to teach music history and appreciation. She began to teach a course in the history of rock music in the early nineteen-eighties and decided to try writing her own book because she did not really like any that were available at that time. That book, "Rock Music Styles: A History" was published in its first edition in 1990 and is now out in its fifth edition, published by McGraw-Hill Higher Education. Her second book, "Experience Music", also published by McGraw-Hill, will be out in its second edition summer of 2008.
Robert Hickok is Professor Emeritus of Music (Choral Conducting) from the University of California, Irvine.
