Steve Terrell is a mild-mannered reporter for the Santa Fe New Mexican and a wild-mannered DJ at KSFR. He has done his show at KSFR since the mid '90s. He's a devout follower of the Frank Zappa doctrine: KILL UGLY RADIO!
Terrelll's Sound World (10 PM Sundays) is the home of Free-form Weirdo Radio. You're going to hear a lot of hopped-up garage music old and new, wild old R&B, surf, psychedelic, punk, gutter blues, psychobilly, sweaty soul music, screaming gospel ... Sometimes he drifts into world music, jazz from various dimensions, "outsider" music, sometimes even polka ... He plays whatever he's in the mood for. And he gets in some weird moods sometimes.
The Santa Fe Opry (10 pm Friday) is for people who like country music as the Good Lord intended it to sound, in all its twisted roots and branches. It's THE MUSIC NASHVILLE DOES NOT WANT YOU TO HEAR! Terrell plays a crazy blend of classic honky-tonk, western-swing, rockabilly, alt-country, underground country and all-around hillbilly madness. You'll hear truck-driving songs, beer-drinking songs, heartache songs, murder ballads, hog calls ... all the stuff they don't play on so-called country stations these days.
In addition to his KSFR shows, Terrell does a monthly podcast, The Big Enchilada, for the GaragePunk Pirate Radio network.
