ABQ Radio: Good Times & Temporary Goodbyes

Posted by on September 19, 2011 | Comments Off on ABQ Radio: Good Times & Temporary Goodbyes

As we’ve been pained to report to you in the past, the radio game is just the same as any other – full of high times, hard times and goodbyes.

The seasons of change hit our favorite crews with moves and moving-ons on the regular. We’re always happiest to publish where our faves move-up and on, always at the ready to enlighten and entertain us.

You’ve followed along with us and rally around the old and the new, you write to us often asking what ever happened to…and when will so-and-so be back and where? (Carmelina, girl they look for you everyday)

Well, we’ll keep-up with as many of your beloved radio personalities and other local celebrities, because in case you couldn’t tell…we love them too.

Here’s a sweet sentiment from our friend “Rico” Chico Suave who’s recently left his gig on 93.3 KOB FM.

“It will never be forgotten where I started, there are so many people who gave me that chance. Out of nowhere I showed who I was and it helped me reach higher ground. There are no words to describe how grateful I am to have been a part of something that I’ve dreamed about every day in my youth. The show goes on and I will not let myself give up on what my heart has fallen in love with. There is no hate or negative feelings for the way things are blooming, instead I am thankful to God for giving me strength and understanding that this is not the end. I will repay those who lifted me with great respect and show them that they helped make a great man. Fight the good fight, live the good life. I’m not going to say goodbye instead I say to you amigos, adios for now!” – Chico

Drop ’em a line here.

NM Talent Mourns Loss

Posted by on September 12, 2011 | One comment
NMNM's OwnRIPTalent

G. Vincent Pulli, Director of A&M Talent Agency in Santa Fe, died the morning of September 12 following a valiant three-year battle with cancer. A stalwart champion for the New Mexico film and entertainment industry, he will be sorely missed.

Vince was born August 18, 1944 and raised in suburban Philadelphia. He served in the army during the Vietnam War and ran several businesses in Pennsylvania and Florida during the 1970s and 1980s. As the Florida film industry boomed, Vince became a franchised agent for the Screen Actors Guild in 1992. After moving to Santa Fe in 2002, he joined the Santa Fe Association of Realtors and hung his license with RE/MAX but was soon drawn back to working with actors and built A&M into the largest SAG agency in the state.

Vince is survived by his wife and co-director, Elizabeth, son David, of Denver, Colorado, and sisters Cindy Godshall and Pamela Wenger, of Souderton, Pennsylvania.

Memorial donations may be made to Wounded Warrior Project at

I found out this morning that a great Man passed away last night peacefully in his sleep after a three year battle with Cancer. Vince Pulli The Co-Owner of A&M Agency which represents a large pool of NM Talent has left us. Vince’s work helped me realize a dream that I am forever grateful for. Thank you for all your work and dedication to each and every one of us. Liz my heart goes out to you and Jody Black as you carry on his work. Let’s celebrate his life. – Manny Baca

Out of all the agents I’ve had over the years, he believed in me the most! I will really miss him. Praying for all who knew and loved him. – Shenita Moore

Rest peacefully Mr. Pulli. Praying for the hearts of all who love you. WE will celebrate your life. The A&M family will miss you, and we love the legacy that you have left. Liz, Jody Black, Warm thoughts being sent your way. – Sandi Kay

Just found that one of the few people who believed in me from the very beginning six years ago, a man that I trusted, one who acted honorably both with me and on my behalf, one who had as much passion in his laughter as he did in his cussing…Vince Pulli is gone from this Earth…so very many good memories, life lessons, and growth both as a person and as an actor came as a result of knowing him…Liz, Jody Black, you are in my thoughts and prayers. – Amy Jo Larson

Vince was more than just my agent, he was a friend & father to everyone in the film community. His spirit, fight, & passion for the industry will live on through us all. – Erik Hausmanis

AlbuquerqueCastFilmNMNM's OwnTalent

As we told you here Albuquerque’s own Willow Shields is making national, nay world news as the young talent who has been cast as Primrose Everdeen in the highly anticipated big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ bestseller The Hunger Games.

OHI fave Jack Justice Brown is also making news that swells our hearts with joy, as the Albuquerque native too is cast in a rabid fan followed, bestselling novel adaptation – Odd Thomas is currently in production locally and NM’s beloved Jack Justice has landed the role of young Odd.

Both young actors were recently featured in the NM production of the Hallmark Hall of Fame original movie Beyond the Blackboard as premiered Easter Sunday on CBS – find it to see many of NM’s Own!

Major congratulations to these two New Mexicans for making great strides in their field and being true artists that we can all be proud of!

Fiction/Thriller and Fictitious Non-fiction

Posted by on December 16, 2010 | 2 comments

In today’s OneHeadlightInk book club suggestions we bring you a collection of actual New Mexico authored novels and a compilation book of anecdotes that we think ought be on store shelves.

Local Attorney Jonathan Miller has not one but five thrillers now available on Amazon.com.

Pick-up one or all five today to get a taste of what the Albuquerque Journal calls “…the next John Grisham.”

Keep-up with the New Mexican Author/Attorney at Law on Facebook here and most of all seek out local talent at every turn – you will find it.

As we did find local wife, mommy and communications conglomerate exec. Lisa Paz. Lisa is every woman, nay every parent. We fell in love with her on a rare night out for the working mom. We found her spectacular, charming and funny – a true inspiration.

Most of us know it yet not all of us talk about it – parenting is hard, especially if you’re doing it right. In the web log of Lisa’s subtly mind-blowing realizations she chronicles all the nutty haps that turn a world upside down at the drop of potty bucket. We’ll go ahead and dub her the next Dave Barry.

Along with her humorous take she reminds us of two very important things:

1. This stuff is hilarious and not for sissies – amateurs need not apply.
2. Other parents can rest assured that they are not alone in their daily absurdities – and it’s all so worth it.

In summation, if you’ve got the luxury of carving out a little time to cuddle-up with a thriller by the fire we say go New Mexican and check out Miller.

And if you find yourself too frazzled to follow several sentences in a row just hit send, send, send on every publishers inbox requesting that our home-town sister gets herself a book deal – because that’s a read you need!

Uno Voz mas Magnífico

Posted by on October 16, 2010 | One comment

From the sexiest lady voice around (previous post, duh), with her hair and heart of gold to another coveted voice coming at you from intros to pitches and everywhere in-between…

You know that guy on PBS who narrates errything from The American Experience to the Dos Equis: The Most Interesting Man in the World commercials or the late great movie trailer announcer Don LaFontaine…well forget them – NM’s own voice of the ages can be yours!

Take it light & easy over ice cream cake and pizza parties. Higher, faster and louder for an event whose purposes may escape you yet you’re still SUPER excited to go to it! Or for the more audibly titillated set he can just speak his speak – that Barry White meets what the cover of a romance novel would sound like if it could talk…click here for audio.

In what some (me) would dub one of the most erroneous and heinous moves in NM audio landscape history (just one of them, in the past several years) Jaimey B. has been long off the radio waves of our hearts, but he’s kickin’ it and stealing away with ears aplenty laying down incredible sounds for all your commercial, announcement, documentary and narration needs.

To achieve the oration of your dreams follow these links to El Voz Magnífico: Main, 123, FB, Voices
