Sat. 10/8, 9a: This Saturday on The Children's Hour, the KUNM Kids will find out about the upcoming Albuquerque biking event, CiQlovia.  Plus, Eric Blinman from New Mexico's Office of Archeaological Studies will tell us about Archeology Day.  

Do you like spooky books?  It's the birthday of RL Stine, author of over 300 books, many of which give kids Goosebumps, and Eliot will review a ghostly book just in time for pre-Halloween reading.

The oil and gas industry in New Mexico is a big deal. It supports the state budget with hundreds of millions of dollars each year. But there are impacts, too – on air quality, water, public health and even cultural sites. In the first installment of KUNM’s new series Drilling Deep, we explore northwestern New Mexico – and the Chacoan landscape.

To reach Chaco Culture National Historical Park, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you hang a left off highway 550 near Nageezi, New Mexico and head south.
