Ways to Connect

On November 4th, we lost a cherished member of the KSFR and Santa Fe community.  Radio host, Santa Fe Local Treasure, and man of thought and brilliance Craig Barnes died at 79 after a long battle with Lymphoma. This Saturday, November 14th, from 9 to 10 am, KSFR will pay tribute to Craig on the air with reminisces from family, friends and colleagues.  A memorial service is also scheduled for 2pm on Saturday, November 28th at the Rivera Kiva Chapel of Light, 417 East Rodeo Road in Santa Fe. 

KSFR is holding a community flea market in the main parking lot of the Santa Fe Community College. We are selling parking spaces at $15 a space or two for $25. Each space has a dimension of 18 ft x 6.5 ft. No limit on the amount of spaces purchased.  All vendors get to keep the proceeds of their sales. It’s a win-win for all involved!

Call 505-428-1527 to purchase a spot or if you are interested in volunteering!  



On-air fund drives are a great way to remind our listeners that we need your support to continue to deliver KSFR’s award-winning programs—programs that reflect the independent, thoughtful voices of our own unique northern New Mexico communities.

But independence and excellence have their price by breaking into our programming every once in a while to ask for your financial support.

Holiday Volunteer Opportunities in Santa Fe

As Christmas approaches, it’s easy—and sometimes even enjoyable-- to get caught up in the flurry of shopping and cooking and decorating.


Award winning journalist Dave Marash is on the air every Monday-Thursday at 5PM MT  with his program "HERE AND THERE WITH DAVE MARASH."

Each program features an extended interview with a working journalist, analyst or newsmaker who is ”eyes on”-close to an important news story. 

As the title of the show indicates the stories can come from “here” in New Mexico, or any “there” around the world. 

The 65th annual Rodeo de Santa Fe is underway. Rodeo de Santa Fe President Jim Butler says this year’s rodeo features a brand new scoreboard and all the events associated with Rodeos, including bull riding events sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. Dustin Muncy is one of the bull riders competing. Muncy told KSFR news how bull riding events are scored. The Rodeo de Santa Fe runs through Sunday.

Recently KSFR's Co-News Director David Marash led a panel discussion on The Future of Broadcast News during UC Berkeley's annual Symposium on Investigative Reporting.
