Martin Luther King Tribute
KTAL will air the station's annual tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. at 10 a.m., Monday, Jan. 18, by broadcasting a speech that Dr. King gave in 1961 at the Temple Emanuel synagogue in Worcester, Mass.
A cassette recording of the speech was forgotten for many years, but it was rediscovered in Las Cruces, remastered in 2017 and made available to KTAL for broadcast. Presented early in 1961, the speech was given as the civil rights movement was picking up steam following the successes of the Montgomery bus boycott, the lunch counter sit-ins, Brown v. Board of Education, and shortly after the inauguration of John F. Kennedy. Yet the challenge of racial injustice is still with us, and Dr. King’s words still ring true today.
KTAL is proud to offer this important speech to our listeners.

KTAL Community Moments
To keep your spirits up, we are airing short stories on how the Las Cruces community is stepping up to help one another during the pandemic. These KTAL Community Moments are broadcast throughout the day, and you can find them here.
We hope you are well and safe at KTALI! What a wonderful radio station you have. Best one we have ever listened to, organic and fresh!!!!
We are going to visit NM in June or July and instead of spending a few days in Las Cruces, we have decided to spend like 4-5 days there. Your radio station and it's positive vibes play a part in our decision to increase our time in your community.
We have done much research about Las Cruces and find it to be a very forward and positive community. I am sure our stay there will not disappoint. If we like what we see, we just might move there sometime shortly thereafter. Life is too short not to look for adventure and positive things in the world!!
Cheers and stay well.
Thanks Ron and Melissa for your kind words!
