  • Congratulations! Have you heard the news?
    Our local radio station, KRSN AM 1490, won the award this year for New Mexico Broadcasters Association, 2012 Broadcaster of the Year.
    If you are so inclined, check out the video made for their special night on You Tube, just look for Broadcaster FINAL.
    Now remember, I don’t work for KRSN or the Los Alamos Monitor, but I’m about to sing the praises of both.
    First note that the newspaper has no problem with running a column I write about KRSN. You’ve probably also noticed that KRSN doesn’t have a problem when I speak on the air about something I have done or have coming up in the newspaper.

    First up, thanks to Cyndi Wells (Pet Pangaea) and Georgia Strickfaden (Buffalo Tours) for bountiful donations. The home range at the Posse Lodge provided a perfect setting.  At the chow line, Steve Wallin’s chuck wagon and succulent smoked beef made this an up-town rodeo.

  • Getting the opportunity to play music with a teen idol would be a dream come true for most people. Los Alamos National Laboratory engineer Tom Gattis is no different, only, his dream was realized last spring.
    It all began for Gattis when he and three other guys formed a band in the Baltimore area in the 1980s. Like a lot of musicians, they met through a newspaper ad and once formed, decided to call themselves Deuce.
    Gattis said he was raised on music by Judas Priest, UFO and the Scorpions, as well as classical music, all of which influenced him as a singer.
