KTAOS Afternoon Show with Brad Hockmeyer: 3pm-7pm

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! Featured weekday segments include:

  • Lost & Hound (6:05pm): Call 751-8282 (must leave a message) or email mel@ktao.com to report missing or found pets from the Taos area. You can find daily updates at enchantedtaos.com.
