Boating Safety Tips for KLAQ Great Raft Race

We are exactly one month away from the KLAQ Great River Raft Race and I thought  this would be a good time to share some of my maritime expertise with those of you planning to build your own raft and navigate it down the Rio Grande.

Along with each of these tips, which are from the National Safe Boating Council, I've included photos that I took this past weekend of the majestic waterway that we know as the mighty, rushing Rio Grande....
1.) Wear a Flotation Device

No matter how strong a swimmer you think you are, a personal flotation device is always a must. As you can see in the picture above, the Rio Grande may look placid on it's surface, but underneath it is full of treacherous eddies and swirling currents that make navigating it a challenge for even the most seasoned of sailors.

Gabe Aranda Talks Balloonfest, Tornado Damage [AUDIO]

We've gotten to know Gabe and Dameon Aranda pretty well over the past few years. They've played at several of our events and, if you've ever seen them perform, you know they are a super, super talented band.

They're also good people. We'd been scheduled to talk to Gabe since Saturday about their upcoming performance at Balloonfest. Then the tornadoes hit Oklahoma right near where they make their homes. They'll still be here Sunday for Balloonfest, but our interview this morning took a different direction in light of the recent weather in OKC.

KLAQ’s Guitar Shredder for the Week – Balloonfest’s Mark Tremonti Trading Licks [VIDEO]

This week, I want to feature the guitar skills of Mark Tremonti. He's kind of an underrated guitar player, since he tends to play more for the song instead of the shred, but when he cuts loose, he can really cut loose! I found these videos a while back, with guitar shred king Rusty Cooley and Mark trading off licks.
