Katie Stone

Host

For nearly a decade, Katie Stone has been the executive producer of The Children's Hour.  Her goal with The Children's Hour is to bring informative and entertaining radio programming to the KUNM listeners, showcasing local kids and kid-friendly organizations, while involving kids in all aspects of the production. She works with a crew of a dozen kids who engineer the show, write scripts and reviews, assist with choosing music, and help with the live broadcast.  

Katie started working in radio when she was 15 years old at WDGC in Downers Grove, IL.  Outside of KUNM, Katie can be found advocating for families who have kids with disabilities, and working at Stone Design, a software company she co-owns with her husband Andrew.  She is the step mother of two daughters who are now grown up, and the mom of Eli and Emma who help produce the radio show.  Katie and her family live in a handmade house on a solar powered organic farm in Albuquerque raising chickens, llamas, fruit, vegetables, alfalfa and children.

Assistance Dogs Of The West

Sat. 8/2 9a:  Just in time for International Assistance Dog Week, youth trainers Zoe and Jenny from Assistance Dogs of the West will join us along with dogs in training:  Marianne and Gilbert.  We’ll learn about what assistance dogs do, who needs them, how we should interact with them in public, and how they are trained to do their jobs. These amazing dogs will show off some of their skills for us in the studio. Learn how kids can get involved with training future assistance dogs, and how New Mexico will celebrate International Assistance Dog Week.   

The Doubleclicks are a pair of sisters from Portland, Oregon who write songs that are all at once snarky, geeky and sweet.

Aubrey and Angela Webber joined us on The Children's Hour during their summer tour and performed live for us.

Their kid's CD, "Worst Superpower Ever" is available at iTunes, Amazon and their website, thedoubleclicks.com.

The crew of The Children's Hour sat down with Weird Al Yankovic when he was in Albuquerque recently and had a frank discussion about his name, music, children's book career, and life.
