Southwest Stages is a weekly, one-hour live music specialty show that features music in a wide variety of styles, from Blues to Jazz, Funk to Folk, Americana to Country, Rock to Rhythm, Native to World music and more.

Southwest Stages follows a diverse format that features several different types of programs. Some contain artists that fit in one genre of music; others showcase one artist from several venues as a "best of" program; and others highlight the best of an entire music festival, some are an evening with an artist at a specific venue.
These programs contain interviews by the host or with guest interviewers and some have no interview. The one thing they all have in common is the all feature great live performances from around the SW.

These programs informs a national audience about the unique culture, venues and musical events of the Southwest, as well as gives exposure to the talented cross-section of musical artists who tour the Southwest, and often don’t have an outlet to get their music heard on the radio.
By sharing the music and live events of the Southwest region, we hope to unite communities of the region, and provide station listeners throughout the US and the world a taste of the vibrant and lively music culture of the Southwest.

Unlike other similar programs (Beale St. Caravan, Mountain Stage, New Orleans all the way live & E-Town), Southwest Stages showcases multiple venues, various types of events, and features diverse musical genres and intimate interviews founded in the interests of the artists.

This unique and high-quality nature of our program earned Southwest Stages a “Special Merit” Award from the National Federation of Community Broadcasters (NFCB) in the category of best National Music/Entertainment Program for our program “An Evening w/ Taj Mahal & the Hula Blues Band” recorded at the Historic Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, NM.

We would appreciate if your station would consider our unique, diverse and high-quality show as an addition to your programming schedule.
