The first hour of the program will speak to the special relationship between the City of Santa Fe and the Town of Taos. The second hour of the program will feature a new monthly series called "This Is Taos," which will focus on the reasons why people find the historic northern New Mexico town a desirable destination to visit, work in, or as a place to own a home.
In the first hour of the show:
