For several years, I hosted a radio talk show on KVSF, 101.5 FM, The Voice of Santa Fe.
Guests included numerous elected officials from city hall to the state Legislature, local leaders from the nonprofit world, artists, filmmakers, musicians, activists and more. The show has been voted in the top 3 Best radio shows in 2013 and 2014 by readers of the Santa Fe Reporter in its annual Best of Santa Fe competition. I still sit in at KVSF for special events and guest hosting as needed.
Here are a few sample shows and outtakes:
