2.26.10: Today's Guest

Today’s guest on the Lisa D Show is Robert Holguin, ex-El Pasoan, musician, reporter and resident Los Angelen.

Robert Holguin used to be a reporter at the El Paso Times, focusing on arts and culture, and eventually becoming the assistant editor of the 'Living' section. In 2000, Holguin started as a reporter at KVIA, before becoming the weekend anchor, and then eventually co-hosting "Good Morning El Paso" as the fourth “Robert” to host. Holuguin left El Paso in 2006. These days he's a reporter and fill-in anchor at the ABC affiliate in Los Angeles. Holguin continues to stay very involved film and music.

Holguin is also a guitarist and is part of the band The New Plastic Machine. What kind of music genre is the band? According to them, a little bit of everything. From The New Plastic Machine website:

From the band website: Can you call it a "supergroup" when none of the members are famous? Perhaps only if the players are able to smash the dogmas of pop music by coming together on a project that re-invents the conventions of a traditional band.

Such is the case with the New Plastic Machine, which manages to synchronize several personalities and styles into one album of original music. The eight songs on the group’s debut EP embody the New Plastic Machine aesthetic, an injection-molded creation that glides effortlessly from R&B-infused pop to guitar-heavy modern rock, with influences that include everyone from David Bowie to Wilco to Tracy Chapman and even The Killers.

2.25.10: Today's Guests

Today on "The Lisa D Show" we will discuss two upcoming events; YWCA Racial Justice Initiative's Jim Crow Module and "Come Walk on the Wild Side" at the El Paso Zoo.

We'll first talk with Adriana Payan from the YWCA about tonight's forum at the El Paso Times building focusing on segregation and racial justice. It is free and open to the public and recommended for people 16 and older. "Attendees will participate in role-playing scenes meant to illustrate how authorities once used intimidation to discourage blacks in the South from voting in elections."

From the El Paso Times: Skin color used to determine what schools children attended and where adults could sit on a bus. Those troubling times will be revisited from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday during the YWCA Racial Justice Initiative's Jim Crow Module. The event will be at the El Paso Times, 300 N. Campbell. RSVPs can be called into Adriana Payan at 533-2311, ext. 275.

Travel + Leisure disses El Paso International Airport

Travel + Leisure Magazine's February 2010 issues features a long list of the ugliest airports in the world and El Paso International Airport is #13. El Paso has a way of making it onto these lists of ugliest, sweatiest, smelliest, etc. How sad. How did they come to this conclusion? See below.

Read the full article here. Or read it here:

El Paso International Airport, El Paso, TX

"You are unlikely to mistake El Paso International for any other airport on the planet. Arguably that’s a good thing. The terminal is an apparent attempt to blend regional style—southwestern adobe, more or less—with...something harder to identify. (That domelike copper roof belongs where, exactly: on an old train station? a Greek Orthodox church? in Paris?) Inside, fast-food outlets and ticket counters are dressed up in southwestern drag. But the pièce de résistance lies at the airport entrance. Dedicated in 2007 and purportedly the world’s largest bronze equestrian statue (36 feet tall), it depicts Spanish conquistador Juan de Oñate, who reputedly gave El Paso its name, on a rearing horse. However, de Oñate’s special talent was massacring Indians, notably some 800 residents of the Acoma Mesa, and is, as a result, politically troublesome, so the statue is now simply called “The Equestrian.”

The Upside: It’s unique."

From Goss: “For example, as part of the EDGE Life program we have developed a music industry program that involves all the aspects of starting and maintaining a "garage band". The EDGE! spent over $12,000 to purchase state of the art musical instruments/equipment and another $20,000 to purchase a trailer to haul the equipment in. Garage Band is composed of some kids who know how to sing or play and many who are learning. We also have a photographer, band manager, and roadies and are recruiting for more roadies (can't ever have enough hands to help with the heavy lifting), a graphic designer, sound tech, and any other peripheral support positions that will make our band stronger and better! We have our first gig on Feb. 20 where we are the intermission entertainment for the Ascarate Lake Trout Fishing Tournament.”

Press Release
Four goals form the basis of Las Villitas: Neighborhoods & Shared Memories:
I. Preserve, interpret and increase an appreciation for neighborhood-based history with the hopes of fostering a sense of place and pride in the local community.
II. Give voice to El Paso citizens in a museum setting.
III. Enhance the Museum’s mission by linking the community and museum in a series of projects that explore key themes.
IV. Develop a variety of educational programming.

How will Las Villitas represent neighborhoods in El Paso?
Las Villitas will transition through El Paso neighborhoods based on how the city grew historically. From the 1873 incorporation, El Paso expanded east along the Franklin Mountains into Central, up into the Northeast, continuing into the Lower Valley and Northwest El Paso. Communities outside the city limits, like San Elizario, will also be included.

The first two neighborhoods featured are Chihuahuita and El Segundo Barrio.

Through photographs, artifacts and oral histories, Las Villitas focuses on these key content areas to tell the neighborhood’s overall history:

• Evolution of Community

• Family & Home
• Leisure Time

• Social Status
• Work

When will Las Villitas take place?
The grand opening for Las Villitas is scheduled for Summer 2010 at the El Paso Museum of History.

Who can participate in Las Villitas?
Past and present neighborhood residents can participate through the Community Coalition. This group will help spread the word about Las Villitas special events and programs to their neighbors, friends, and organizations.

El Pasoans with a connection to the featured neighborhoods can participate in several Collection Days. On these days, El Pasoans will share their photographs and special artifacts related to the neighborhood with staff and volunteers. Selected items will be used in the gallery. These items can be from any time period as long as they relate to the neighborhood.

Where do I get more information about Las Villitas?
More information is on its way! If you would like to participate, contact Vanessa Macias, Las Villitas Project Manager, at 351-3588 or email her at

Call for Submissions: Poems for Poemales

Press Release

The farm.stand collective is looking for poetry submissions about foods produced and/or consumed in the El Paso/Juarez region for a collaborative poetry/visual art performance called “Poemales” to be held at the 2010 Humanities and Education Research (HERA) Conference in downtown El Paso on March 13, 2010. The poems collected from this call for submissions will be wrapped in corn husks to produce “poemales,” locally produced poems that conference attendees can “consume.” In turn, the farm.stand collective will host a writing workshop, allowing conference attendees to create their own “poemal,” which will be sent back to those persons who initially submitted a poem.

We are asking those who submit poems for our performance to consider several factors in relation to a particular food — where it comes from, how it was produced, the labor required to produce it, and their relationship to it (sensual, historical, nostalgic, familial, cultural, etc.). In considering these factors, we encourage participants to rely not simply on what they think they know about the food, but to also ask questions that reveal what is normally obscured in the production and distribution of foods. Research into local foods can involve speaking to a produce manager, reading articles on how a certain vegetable is grown, tracking the history of a food (from its place of origin to the writer’s plate), investigating methods of cultivation, interviewing a farm worker, or watching a local cook prepare a food. This information-gathering would then lead to the creation of a poem. The purpose for this is to reveal the many ways that food is part of — and subject to — social, economic, environmental, cultural and political networks and power structures, which involve and affect us all.

We encourage poems in Spanish and English, as well as visual poems. When preparing your digital submission, consider that your poem will be printed on a paper no longer than 9" and no wider than 7". Please format accordingly. All poems should be sent by email as attachments. (Original art work may be scanned and sent as an email attachment.) Please include your name, address, and email with your submission.
Submissions: Send poems to Rosa Alcalá at, and visual work to Christine Foerster at Click here to learn more about Christine Foerster.

Projects I like: Su Voz Latina

It's not everyday that a slick new magazine hits the market to rave reviews, but Su Voz Latina has done just that! Labeled a magazine for Latinas by Latinas, this magazine offers self help, fashion, nutrition information and more, to a Latinas ages 12 - 92..

Editor Jessica Escalante and Art Director Cassandra Davisson work alongside publisher Jennifer Sanchez to produce this lovely publication. Will this project make its way to national newsstands? If the quality stays high and they stay true to appealing to Latinas, it is very possible.

Make time to pick up a free copy at Ella Blu, Cafe Central or click here for a list of more distribution locations.

El Paso is one of the markets that is currently featuring a very unique art project.

Artpace San Antonio “serves as a laboratory for the creation and advancement of international and contemporary art. They believe that art is a dynamic social force that inspires individuals and defines cultures. Their residencies, exhibitions, and education programs nurture the creative expression of emerging and established artists, while actively engaging youth and adult audiences. “ (

Artpace is a non-profit public charity, and is greatly appreciative of Clear Channel Outdoor’s support in realizing their Felix Gonzalez-Torres Billboard Exhibition. The late Gonzalez-Torres, who was a resident artist at Artpace shortly before his death, created a body of art specifically designed for display on outdoor media—billboards.

This exhibit is showing in the major Texas markets to reach a regional audience. This exhibition will be married to PR efforts to raise awareness and will be tied in to Artpace’s 15th year anniversary branding campaign.

ROJO Apparel officially launched in September 2009 on the campus of New Mexico State University with a simple mission: to feed the hungry. At ROJO Apparel our goal is to address a major problem; over 1 billion of the world’s people are hungry. What’s even more shocking is how easy it is to help. We want to provide people with an avenue to give while they shop. Every purchase from our site will provide funds to ship meals to the starving people of the world.

Blogs I like

After today's fantastic interview with musician and entrepreneur Jim Ward, I thought I'd post a little something about his blog My Town with Jim Ward. Filled with news and info about El Paso, Ward's blog lives on the CVB homepage and helps El Pasoans and visitors alike learn about all there is to do in the Sun City.

Become a follower of My Town and you will get updates on upcoming events in El Paso, Ward's musings on the town he loves and more.

Click here to visit My Town.

2.4.10: Today’s Guest

Jim Ward, rock star and entreprneuer, will be our guest on "The Lisa D Show" today from 1 - 2 p.m. on KHRO 1150 AM. Tune in or stream the show from Call the show @ 915.880.4376.

“Ward is the lead singer of Sleepercar—the West Texas band from El Paso, made up of a revolving cast of characters with one common thread—the love of the American singer/songwriter and the desire to contribute to that legacy.
What was to become Sleepercar began as At the Drive In, which Ward was a founding member, was winding down and then sidetracked as Sparta, for whom Ward would serve as lead vocalist and guitarist, began. All along, Ward kept writing songs, jammed here and there, tracked material, recorded and released solo EPs, all the while, keeping the Sleepercar dream alive.
Through Ward’s winding road, Sleepercar has had many triumphs-- touring the United States and Canada with bands such as Coldplay, Old 97’s, City and Colour, playing shows with Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band in his hometown of El Paso and the southwest region, then taking some time to open a bar in El Paso called Hope and Anchor with two business partners, an idea not just meant to serve as additional income, but an idea in a way, “to make sure the guys [in the band] had some place to work when we’re not on the road,” said Ward.

Ward’s growth doesn’t stop there—he and “right hand man” Gabe Gonzalez are currently working on building a state of the art recording studio in the heart of El Paso. “The idea is to have a home base where we can comfortably work on our music, from soundtracks to Sleepercar records, and produce and record other artists,” said Ward. In theory, bands can come to El Paso, have a stiff drink and go record—all in a day’s work around here.

Other highlights include recording a song with Tegan Quin for one of his solo EPs, “In the Valley, On the Shores,” sharing the stage with good friends Chuck Ragan, Frank Turner, Tim Berry, etc during the Revival Tour in 2009, serving as the Music Supervisor and scoring the soundtrack for indie film, Motel Glimpse in 2009, establishing, an online store for him to distribute his music, designing a sneaker for Pony and finally tiling his bathroom floor.”

2.3.10: Today’s Guest

Sondra Banfield Dailey, Publisher of Sweet Earth Flying Press LLC, will discuss a very exciting book project, Boy of the Border.

From an article published on

The path to publish Boy of the Border, a coming-of-age tale about a 12-year-old boy in the Mexican Revolution-era Southwest, began when Maceo read a passage from Arna Bontemps-Langston Hughes Letters, 1925-1967. Bontemps mentioned to the fellow acclaimed writer and friend, “I had almost forgotten Boy of the Border, but I recall now that I liked it while we were doing [it], and I can’t imagine why it was not published.”

The title Boy of the Border stood out to the UTEP director of African American Studies and history professor. He and Sondra traveled twice to Yale University’s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. They found the original written from 1939-1941, and the 1955 revised edition, which is what was published by the Benfield’s publishing company Sweet Earth Flying Press.

The process from finding the manuscript in 2006 to publishing the book in late 2009 was not a simple one, according to Sondra, who works as the publisher (her husband works as the editor as well as at UTEP). The publishing team located a literary agent who represents the Bontemps and Hughes estates, and they were greeted with some skepticism. “Because we did not have experience as publishers, you can imagine the literary agent saying ‘This is a Langston Hughes book; do you know what you’re doing?’” said Sondra.

After 18 months, the project was finally underway, and the illustrations by father-son team Antonio Castro L. and Antonio Castro H. made the project complete. “They did a wonderful job of researching the project so that the dress and architecture were appropriate to the locations,” said Sondra. After completing the project, they entered and won a contest among small new publishers in which the grand prize was a contract for distribution signed in January 2009.

The former elementary school counselor and textbook author said that the publishing company is on the path to publish two more books, one a Kenyan woman’s self help book and the other a Hungarian holocaust survival story. Though one of their first major projects was to unearth Boy of the Border, a story that is almost 70 years old, Sondra said the company will offer new authors a chance for their stories to be told in ways that larger companies might not allow. She said: “One of the things we pride ourselves on is that we give [the writers] the agency to say what they mean to say.”
