I'll probably be doing Internet only versions of The Santa Fe Opry and Terrell's Sound World this week -- and probably for some weeks to come.
The raging Conchas fire near Los Alamos, which reportedly has grown to 60,000 acres, has stopped the power of KSFR's transmission tower on Pajarito Mountain.
"KSFR's tower was in the path of the fire last night and may have been lost," says the web site of Santa Fe Public Radio. It's not clear how much damage was done.
KSFR still is streaming. You can hear it HERE. Jerry Becker's jazz show is coming in loud and clear on my computer speakers.
The New Mexican has it's fire coverage on a handy single page now. This includes the live blog.
Happy Update: Right around noon KSFR went back on the air. None of the station honchos know exactly why, but that obviously means the tower and transmitter didn't burn up. The Conchas fire is still uncontained, so of course there's the danger it'll go off again. But as they say in the radio biz, stay tuned!
