KTAL is Back on the FM Dial!
Great news! KTAL is back on the FM dial! If you live in the Las Cruces area, you can once again hear us at 101.5 FM.
Admittedly, at the moment, it's not totally ideal. When you're listening, you're sure to hear a noticeable hum in the background. Be assured, the problem is only temporary and we expect to have it fixed in the next week. (If it's too annoying for you, you might want to stick with our livestream a while longer where there is no buzz.)
There is also a problem with drop-outs to our FM audio. We are investigating this and hope to have it solved soon.

KTAL Celebrates June Pride Month
Don’t miss the following Pride-related programming in June on Radio Que Tal:
Café Con Leche
Tuesday, June 6 8:00-9:00 AM and rebroadcast Friday, June 9 2:00-3:00 PM
Greg Smith’s main topics will be Pride Month and the Arts. Guests will be State Senator Carrie Hamblen and media expert Jess Williams discussing the Pride Month show in the Staszewski Gallery at the Doña Ana Arts Council; how the Stonewall Riots in late June 1969 led to Pride Month all these decades later; the constructive roles each of the guests has played in those decades; and what role they and the arts are playing in the current dialogue about LGBTQ issues.
This Way Out
This show airs every Thursday from 12:00-12:30 PM
This Way Out is the only internationally distributed weekly LGBTQ radio program, currently airing on some 200 local community radio stations around the world. The award-winning half-hour magazine-style program features a summary of some of the major news events in or affecting the queer community (NewsWrap), in-depth coverage of major events, interviews with key queer figures, plus music, literature, entertainment — all the information and culture of a community on the move!
Friday, June 9 7-9 PM
Sanguine Fromage throws a Pride parade for the ears with fabulous music from Sylvester, Billie Holiday, Billy Porter, Big Freedia, The Village People, and more!
Stay tuned for special Pride programming throughout the month at KTAL 101.5.
