I'll be back hosting the Santa Fe Opry again tonight, 10 p.m. Mountain Time, after taking last week off. Thanks to Laurell Reynolds for sitting in for me.
Even more exciting, in case you haven't hear, KSFR is back on the air, 101. FM, so people in Santa Fe can listen to the show on the radio instead of these new-fangled computer things.
We still don't know whether out transmitter and tower survived the fire on Pajarito Mountain, but we've set up an emergency transmitter here in Santa Fe. Unfortunately the signal doesn't reach very far outside of Santa Fe, so if you're having trouble getting the station, you can still stream us. CLICK HERE
Speaking of forest fires, etc. here's one way to enjoy some fireworks in New Mexico this Independence Day weekend and not have everyone hate you:
