    Great Station, Love the music and personalities especially Katie Cole.
    The Menu lacks one ingredient that can be vital to the presentation of this musical meal.
    We need a bowl of red or green. Local Albuquerque and Santa Fe artists can help direct their fans to your station if they have a reason to. Some, at this point feel left out. How about a red or green hour a couple times a day that would highlight Michael Anthony, Patty Stephens,Zanobia, Son Como Son, Milo Jaramillo, Dianna Huges, Frank Lieto, and many, many other truly great local musicians. A partnership of mutual benefit with Professionals like Maud B. at New Mexico Jazz Workshop would pay huge dividens to all concerned. I see this New Mexico red or green hour being popular and unique enough to be syndicated. I am not a musician, there is nothing for me in this idea except that music does far more for me than it should. Observe how local musicians, like Patty Stephens, can pack the house. The Workshops summer series has a lot to offer The Oasis. I am not on the board nor do I work for the workshop. Call if you want to discuss this. 505.288.1002. For some reason, we have the feeling that great musicians and recording artists always live far away. Lots of great recording artists live here and travel long distances to be appreciated.
