Congratulations to Karen & James Fischer, who won the VIP passes and camping to next weekend's Telluride Blues & Brews Festival. The Fischers are regular attendees at this event, but have never had the VIP experience. They were so excited that they drove out to the station within a couple of hours of winning to get those hot little tickets into their hands.
Pledge by noon on Friday, Aug. 23 and you could win a VIP package for two to the Four Corners Folk Festival, which features KSUT favorites like John Hiatt, Natalie MacMaster and Darrell Scott over Labor Day Weekend. Patron passes and lodging are included.
If you pledge to KSUT between now and noon on Friday, Aug. 23, you'll automatically be entered into the earlybird drawing for a trip for two to festival. We'll draw on-air that day and you don't need to be listening to win.
One lucky donor in KSUT's fall membership drive will receive win a trip for two to the Austin City Limits Music Festival, including a pair of festival passes, air travel from Durango, four nights lodging in Austin and festival schwag.
The greatest gift KSUT can give you the listener is less on-air fund raising and more on-air programming.
That is exactly what we are going to do! We know that it’s the great music, trusted news and quality public service programs that keeps you tuned to KSUT - the very same reasons you support Public Radio every year with a financial contribution.
Thanks for your patience with the intermittent audio drop outs on our Four Corners' signal in the last 24 hours. Please note, we will be temporarily off the air as we replace a defective piece of equipment this afternoon. We are cautiously optimistic this will resolve the problem - stay tuned!
Update, 7/30/13, 5:30 PM: Signal interference continues this evening, inconsistent and intermittent, but unfortunately still a problem. Apologies to our listeners, we are still trying to resolve.

It’s been said that the musicians of New Orleans are all members of one gigantic band that breaks up into smaller groups on a nightly basis. If this were really the case, The New Orleans Suspects would be in a class all their own. The group is comprised of musicians with experience and versatility that rival any other band the city has ever produced.
The fun and funky Lipbone Redding will join us in-studio Friday morning (7/19) at 11:30 for some percussive vocal antics. He's performing a benefit show for the Daniel Finn Memorial Scholarship Fund with the Stillwater Foundation at Dancing Spirit Community Arts Center in Ignacio Friday afternoon.
DURANGO – Due to the arrival of monsoonal weather patterns and lowering of fire danger, the San Juan National Forest will eliminate fire restrictions at higher elevations, and ease fire restrictions at lower and middle elevations on Wednesday, July 17, 2013. Fire managers have determined that lower and middle elevations remain dry and potentially flammable, while higher elevations have received enough moisture to significantly reduce fire danger.
