Rick Springfield Musician and actor Rick Springfield will be in Sacramento tomorrow with his new memoir "Late, Late at Night." We'll talk with the former soap star about his career and his life-long struggle with depression.

Rick Springfield will be signing books at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 30th at Borders, 2339 Fair Oaks Blvd., Sacramento.

California Forward A non-partisan group dedicated to reforming the state's political system was behind a number of ballot initiatives during the November election. Some of those reforms passed - majority vote budget, redistricting - and others didn't. We'll talk with two members of the group - a republican and a democrat - about what will happen next.

Preserving Frogs The Placer County Land Trust just signed a conservation easement on a piece of property protecting the federally listed California red-legged frog, made famous by Mark Twain. We'll talk about it.

Baghdad Book Baghdad was once one of the world's leading Jewish cities. But a Nazi-inspired massacre in 1941 and hard times that followed, forced many to leave. Sacramento resident Daniel Khazzoom was one of them and he recently published "No Way Back: The Journey of a Jew from Baghdad," a memoir that he hopes will protect the heritage of Jews from Baghdad from being forgotten. This segment originally aired Aug. 20, 2010.
