KSFR'S Wake Up Call For June 11, 2018

Jun 11, 2018

On Monday’s KSFR Wake-Up Call, former New Mexico Governor and U-N Ambassador Bill Richardson speaks to FOX News about the upcoming summit meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jung Il. Also, KSFR’s John Shannon speaks with Santa Fe-based hologram artist, C-Alex Clark; and Tish Lampert interviews Border Angels Founder Enrique Morones on "America Speaks."

C. Clark

Art Beat Reporter John Shannon speaks with Santa Fe based artist C. Alex Clark who makes Holograms - an art form he says requires lasers and Magic to create three dimensional sculptures of light. 

Wake Up Call has been following efforts to boost the state's economy with several stories about efforts to align post - high school education programs with jobs available in New Mexico, as much to boost the state's economy as to stem the brain - drain of students leaving the state for work. One success story along those lines is Santa Fe Community College's Film Program, which prepares students for a career behind the camera.  Film Program director Milton Reiss spoke to KSFR's Ellen Lockyer about the program.

Master weaver Porfirio Guiterrez speaks to KSFR's Ellen Lockyer about how he grew up in a weaving family in Mexico, and how his family is one of the few weaving families that have refused to use chemical dyes in their craft.  Guiterrez is Zapotec, from Oaxaca, and has turned his talent for weaving into a living in the arts, and how he and his family have worked to save the age old craft from contemporary shortcuts.
