  • Joachim named CEO, GM of KNME

    Franz Joachim has been named General Manager and CEO of New Mexico PBS, KNME-TV, Channel 5.1 (Albuquerque / Santa Fe). He will assume his new position beginning July 1.
    Joachim and Karen Mann, director of finance, have been acting as interim co-general managers for the past six months. Previously, Joachim was the director of content for New Mexico PBS.
    “I am very excited about this new opportunity to serve New Mexico and our viewers, continuing the high standards that have been set by New Mexico PBS/ KNME-TV over the past 55 years of service,” Joachim said. “This position would not have been offered to me had the hard work and dedication of the staff of New Mexico PBS not continued over the past six months while I’ve been the interim co-general manager along with Karen Mann. The communities of northern and central New Mexico deserve the very best that public broadcasting has to offer, and I look forward to continuing that tradition and to further the mission of education, entertainment and inspiration that are central to the services offered by New Mexico PBS’ four channels, online and across multiple platforms.”

  • Summer concerts still going strong

    Warren Hood Band played on June 7 and Lightin’ Malcolm performed on June 14. Next up Homemade Jamz‘ Blues Band; Contemporary electric blues from Tupelo, Miss., play at Pajarito Mountain on Friday.

  • Attention All Bands

    Battle of the Bands at the Kiwanis Fireworks show. Show starts at 2 p.m., July 4. All interested musicians should contact russ@gordonssummerconcerts.com. 

  • Despite fences, the show will go on

    The Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series will continue Friday, although construction around Ashley Pond is underway. Lightnin’ Malcolm starts at 7 p.m. The stage is set up on the grassy area on the west side where the old municipal building stood.
    “Delta Blues goes back to the origins of the blues and Lightnin’ Malcolm one of the future greats, a man that understands, respects and loves the genre,” Organizer Russ Gordon said.
    Malcolm has been touring the country since his late teens. He has said “music has been on my mind since six or seven, but it took until my teen years to start getting around on my own, and you know, put it into action. I played mostly solo then, singing, playing guitar and kick and snare drums with my feet as a one man band.”
    Lightning Malcolm was born in Mississippi, grew up in Missouri and made it back and lives in the Delta.
    Malcolm has played with some of the greatest of the Delta singers. He toured with R.L. Burnside. “He played Los Alamos a few years ago with R.L.’s grandson, Cedric. That was a great fundraiser concert for the series that we had at the Blue Window, a fantastic show,” Gordon said.

  • Musical duo share their Scenic Roots

    Amber and Erin Rogers are Scenic Roots. The sisters perform original and traditional Ozark, Appalachian and Celtic music on mountain dulcimer, fiddle and clawhammer banjo.
    Scenic Roots perform 7 p.m., June 10, at Morning Glory Bakery. The show is part of the duo’s nine-state spring 2013 concert tour. Both women have degrees in commercial music from the renowned bluegrass program at South Plains College.
    Amber’s musical journey began when she started playing fiddle when she was only four. Her contest successes include the prestigious Walnut Valley Old Time Fiddle Championship.
    Erin’s musical journey began when she started playing piano at age five and mountain dulcimer, a string instrument, at age seven. She won the National Mountain Dulcimer Contest at age 17, at that time the youngest ever to win this title.
    In 2007, Erin was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. As she went through chemotherapy and battled her cancer, music became an important part of the healing process. Erin would take her dulcimer to play during her chemotherapy sessions and later learned other patients would ask to schedule their therapies at the same times just so they could enjoy Erin’s music. She is now cancer free and works to share the healing touch of music with others.

  • Warren Hood Band starts off busy weekend

    A busy weekend is coming up starting with the Warren Hood Band playing at the corner of Central Avenue and Main Street on Friday. The concert will be next to the Post Office and sponsored by CB Fox, Dixie Girl and Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce Night.
        Warren Hood Band’s out of Austin, Texas and plays a fantastic fusion of rock, country, bluegrass, swing, jazz, classical and acoustic American roots music. There will be “lots of good dancin’ and romancin’ if you treat your partner right,” Organizer Russ Gordon said.
        Warren is the original fiddler/violinist and founding member of the South Austin Jug Band. He came to New Mexico for the first time in 2002 with the SAJB on the way to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. “They put on a great show here, made a lot of fans and then drove up to Telluride and won “Best New Band” that year. The guys still talk about one of the best weekends of their lives,” Gordon said.
