'Your Multicultural Minute' Wins Award
Congratulations to KTAL-LP's very own Norine Dresser. Her show, "Your Multicultural Minute," just won First Place in the Radio Division of the New Mexico Press Women's 2019 Communications Contest.
Before moving to Las Cruces in 2012, Dresser wrote a Los Angeles Times column, "Multicultural Manners" (1993 to 2001), that won an award from the L. A. County Commission on Human Relations (1998) for reducing intercultural tensions.
As a folklorist, Dresser's passion is demystifying cultures unlike our own. In her columns, books, and KTAL-LP shows, she uses true-story gaffes. She reveals how cultural differences can lead to miscommunication eliciting embarrassment, anger, even laughter. The need for easing cross-cultural misunderstandings is particularly relevant now when ethnic divisiveness in this country is so prominent.
You can hear Norine's shows at the following times:
Live From the Double Wide Makes Its KTAL Debut
There's a new show on Radio Que Tal following the Cosmic Troubadours on Thursday nights: Live From the Double Wide, hosted by Teresa Tudury.
Teresa has had long history in music that started when she began writing songs at age 12 and performing them at age 15. She's released five albums under her own name and she's worked with performers such as Rickie Lee Jones, Lyle Lovett, and Leonard Cohen, to name just a few. Not to mention stints at Rolling Stone magazine during the Hunter S. Thompson years, a recurring role on the Third Rock of the Sun TV series and working as a drug and alcohol family counselor.
About ten years ago, she started hosting her Live At The Double Wide radio at KOWS, a community radio station in Occidental, CA. A recent and fortuitous move to Las Cruces has brought her show to us Las Cruces from 9 to 11 PM (Mountain) Thursday evenings.
Tune in every week to hear a mix of great singer/ songwriters, R&B, indie, blues, gospel, and alt country . "Everyone I play on my show is someone i know personally and have worked with or have had some dealings with," Teresa says, "so the music gets interspersed with stories or bits of history about each artist."
