Taos CurrentsTM
Mike Tilley's Weekly Interview Show
Cultural Energy is almost 9 Years Old
On Sep 9, 2011 the FCC granted us a construction permit for a NCE FM station, KCEY 89.5 FM.
Mike Tilley has been doing his weekly interview show since 1996, beginning on that un-named Alamosa station live on the phone from Cafe Tazza, and then for Cultural Energy, starting in 2003. He has covered the programs of practically every non-profit group in Taos, and interviewed a whole range of politicans and cultural leaders from all over.

We are beginning to put these pages together, starting with the most recent shows, so come back as we fill in the past years.

Mike teaching radio at the Taos Pueblo Day School

Occasionally Robin Collier has filled in as indicated. Of course Mike has done many more interviews beyond Taos Currents, which can be found in our weekly archives.
