1)    How did you happen to join the KSFR family?

My involvement with KSFR began when I heard Ricardo Perez playing brazilian music during one of his programs. I called him, introduced my brazilian self, told him about all the music I had and that was the beginning of a long collaboration. What followed where also guest appearances on different shows at KSFR, like jazz, opera, "Somos Son", etc.

Before KSFR (Jazz a la Carta) I had never been on the radio.

I did a lot of photography as a day job .

4)    What is the most rewarding aspect of your work at KSFR?

I'm originally from Corrales, New Mexico, and now live in Santa Fe with my wonderful cat "Alice"

I'm a carpenter by trade, and work for Mac Watson where we specialize in historical restoration.

As for my hobby's, or more like my passions, I play the fiddle and the banjo, wood carve, and have made several violins.

It is one of the great high points of my life however, to  have the unique privilege of producing a show at KSFR.  What an honor it is to have the opportunity to broadcast over the airwaves, the music so dear to me, to the ears and minds of so many wonderful listeners!

After a career as a college biology professor (Princeton, Harvard, Purdue, SMU) and conservation biologist, Donna returned to her home in a small village in northern New Mexico to restore an 1825 adobe. She has also been a whitewater and horsepack guide and has managed a ranch.

She has taught social dancing and historic dances for 20 years and currently teaches at the Chavez Community Center. After being a guest twice on Gottadance talking about dance history, she joined the KSFR family. Being involved in public radio had been in the back of her mind for years.

The "Camp" was begun about 12 years ago and offers a new vision, "Radio Vision," for the medium of radio where our listeners, we call  "Campers" sit around the virtual campfire as we talk politics, share personally and interview people of passion. Camp Lovewave offers an altered and alternative view of truth, justice and the American 'lost' way and is designed to invite you to open up new neural pathways, breathe deeply, activate your right brain and your spinal column, and  experience a sense of timelessness with a bit of laughter along the way.
