FYI: Film is a New Mexico industry, chile production is a New Mexico industry, hell it’s practically a regional dietary requirement. Both of these homegrown topics and more are currently receiving a tidal wave of national attention, thanks to what amounted to a 7 minute conversation aired on the radio and broadcast on the web out of NM.
It all started earlier this week with a local morning radio show announcement and subsequent broadcast that was met by cheers and some resounding jeers from a few of their listeners, local and national media alike.
The name of the show is Morning Mayhem, not CNN or Fox News, yet a multitude of responses to the show’s major get, in the way of a quick telephone interview with the leader of the free world, are highly critical of the tone and content of the broadcast.
Kiki gives us local traffic and pop news on our way to or at work. Carlos D and Danny V steer those morning airwaves with humor, pop music and relatable banter. All while being cute and a little crazy to entertain their fellow New Mexicans in their daily grind.
You wanted hard hitting questions? Well, they hit home the fact that they are in touch with their audience and that the President of the United States can hold his own while talking to the 99%. The 99% of us who eat chile, who raise kids, who still tune in to local radio for a little entertainment and sometimes some advice from the top of our government that says, hey don’t forget to register to vote. Tell your kids to be persistent, and yeah I’m human too.
Shame on you for
throwing shade at persecuting fellow broadcasters (I’m looking at you Joe Vigil) for reaching their audience on a base level that didn’t include the rhetoric of the already overly abundant negative campaign ads or the bias of a party slanted “news” program.
Lastly, if you’d prefer to hear a “news” report on a candidate who likely wouldn’t know what New Mexico chile is without first asking a high paid advisor how to answer, or one who already has the “super power” of evading taxes to amass staggering personal wealth, change the station, it’s a free country.
