This just in from Chellis Glendinning, author of Chiva, Off the Map and the recently re-released My Name is Chellis and I'm in Recovery from Western Civilization.

Compañeras y compañeros,

I am thrilled to tell you that the radio documentary KUNM news director Jim Williams and I have been working on lo-these-many-months is about to air!

It is Bolivia: Donde la Política Es Indígena and is a half-hour long.

It will air in New Mexico on Thursday, August 30 at 6:30 pm/Mountain Daylight Time, on KUNM 89.9 FM. If you are elsewhere, you can tune in via at the exact time of our airing -- or later if your computer is that clever.

The piece highlights folks in Bolivia: Maria Elena Ortiz, Hugo Soria, Gabriel Yawar Nina, Marco Antonio Poma, Jack Herranen, and Jim Shultz. English voice-overs are provided by New Mexicans Mercedes Mejia, Estevan Arellano, Miguel Santistevan, and Angelo Jaramillo.

What a privilege it has been to provide people in Bolivia the opportunity to air their puntos de vista in the EEUU -- and to work with such great New Mexicans. Severe gratitude goes to Jim Williams con su paciencia suprema y su creatividad extraordinara.

!Dime como le gusta!
