DJ Paddy mac

Paddy Mac, Morning DJ

A recovering sportscaster, rescued from Las Cruces & El Paso where he transitioned from plastic hair and power ties to his current state of dishevelment. Now he mans the mic for the KTAOS morning show and programs the music for KTAOS and Luna 103.7.  A practicing non-practitioner, he's rarely involved in anything that requires... practice. He dotes incessantly on his dog JaBooty, flails at golf balls and weeps openly many Sundays after the latest Cleveland Browns' embarrassment. His favorite color is Feldgrau, his favorite food is whatever's on YOUR plate and his favorite movie has yet to be filmed.
Paddy is photographed at the Taos Mountain Music Festival

Rick Haltermann, The Jazz Show

Rick is a musician, photographer and director of the Association of Noetic Practitioners. He has been a radio host on and off for 40 years. His Sunday morning jazz show combines music and poetry (his college degrees in Music and English are finally getting put to good use) with a different theme each week.

 

Check out Rick's new book Curriculum of the Soul, as well as his stunning photography website

Brad Hockmeyer, Late Afternoon DJ

Our founder, Brad Hockmeyer, caught the radio bug as a young boy living just outside New York City and hasn't been able to shake it since. From Boston to Vermont to Taos his passion for music and radio led to the creation of our radio station in 1982. He recently sold the radio station to a group of his employees but continues to host his afternoon show with music giveaways, compelling interviews, news and we can't forget those great segues! We believe that he's truly solar powered!

Kent Lewis, Through the Looking Glass: Cover Songs Radio

Kent is what we call a music lover and is scholarly known as a "musicologist." He is an expert on the roots of Rock ‘n’ Roll.  In other words, he knows the jukebox. In addition to his KTAOS radio broadcasts, he gives collegiate musical lectures tracing the evolution of American gospel and field songs, Celtic and American folk music, blues, rhythm and blues and soul to the remarkable and diversified world of Rock and Roll. You never know what musical memories you'll discover when Kent unearths the roots of the Rock Family Tree.

Being a hardcore youth advocate, with a mission to give the youth of Taos a voice, Marcus is proud to navigate the awesome territory of local youth culture. Working with an extremely diverse group of youngsters over the years has been exciting and challenging. From Kids Unleashed to Listen Up, his journey has been inspiring. Listen Up is truly The Voice and Leader of Young New Mexico.

Staff Biographies

 

Katie, Production Director/President

A long time ago – in a trailer far far away (just up the street on Blueberry Hill), Katie started her production career at KTAOS, then moved into the KTAOS Solar Center where she actually used to bartend out of buckets in the Community’s Backyard - before the Station Bar was around.  Her swift editing and creative writing skills have earned her more than a dozen awards from the NMBA for best :30, :60, PSA, and promotional announcement.  And now she actually gets paid to listen to music and decide, with the honorable PD Paddy Mac, about the sound of the station – musically that is, as the Music Director.  What a long strange trip it’s been….and here’s to many more KTAOS adventures!

Brian, Chief Engineer

Brian Williams is currently Chief Engineer for KTAO/KLNN, an active member of the Society of Broadcast Engineers and holds a Bachelor's degree in Electronics Engineering. He has been in and out of broadcast radio for the past 15 years. Brian has owned several local and out-of-state businesses specializing in IT, security, and telecommunications and has been involved in design projects for the US Navy SPAWAR and Carnegie Mellon's Software Engineering Institute. He spent many years as a volunteer with Taos Search & Rescue, later advancing to Incident Commander for the New Mexico State Police, where he commanded more than 50 wilderness SAR missions in northern NM. He also flew with the Civil Air Patrol for several years, serving as squadron Director of Communications. Brian first came home to Taos in 1992 after growing up in north Texas. 

Aidan, Engineer / Co-owner

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, its AIDAN and HERE HE COMES TO SAVE THE DAY!  Our diligent in-house radio engineer/IT dude - who has been with KTAOS for over 5 years, crawling around in ducts, tinkering with wires, climbing scaffolding, aiming solar panels at the sun, keeping the station on air, and dealing with everyone’s computer in the building (just a few of his daily tasks). Radio engineer by day and Soundworks Sound Engineer for the KTAOS Solar Center, and pretty much every event in town, by night.  A hard worker is an understatement, for this man, and always with a happy smile on his face.
