The Legend of Taos Mountain: Mumford & Sons Concert Inspires Taos Land Promotion

They say our little town of Taos is going to be inundated with 8-10,000 Mumford & Sons fans for their concert here in Kit Carson Park on Thursday, June 6th, 2013. We’re getting all excited here, kinda like when Dorothy showed up in the City of Oz. Munchkin’s running around trying to polish everything up for our new-comer friends to town. Many will be here discovering Taos for the first time.
And so, the Taos Land & Film Company is preparing to offer a few of you Taos-bound devotees a chance to Test the Mountain and take root in our community with your very own piece of land in Taos. So, we’re running a blitz of radio ads on KTAO and LUNA 103.7 over a four day period around the Mumford & Son’s Concert. What we’re offering you Taos virgins is an opportunity to buy a piece of land in Taos and receive a $5,000 discount off the parcel of land of your choice. This same offer will also stand for those of you who already live in Taos but haven’t gotten your own piece of land yet.

You can come to Taos to see Mumford & Sons, but The Mountain will decide if you can stay.

So, before I start babbling about each and every piece of land we have for sale and it’s history, I’d like to invite you to listen to our four different radio ads we’re planning to start running on Wednesday and tell us which one you prefer. Your four choices will be AD #1 delivered by local Taos Legend TODD GRAVELLE; AD #2 will be by my daughter RUBY JACKSON; AD #3 will be performed by one of our local thesbians, RITA O’CONNELL, (perhaps best known for her role as the Scare Crow in our recent theatrical version of The Wizard of Oz); and lastly AD #4 delivered by yours truly, JEFF JACKSON. ¬†You can vote here and leave comments either here or on FACEBOOK.

AD #1: Todd Gravelle

AD #2: Ruby Jackson

AD #3: Rita O’Connell

AD #4: Jeff Jackson

The winning ad voice will receive a pizza and the adoration of the community because we’ll give their ad more play time. I was going to include the text for the radio ad, but I think I’ll just have you listen to them, since each one is slightly different. And please help us pass this on via the virility of FACEBOOK and other social media. And, sign up on our BLOG and maybe I’ll babble more on it.

Jeff Co-Hosting on “Breakfast With Nancy”‘s KVOT Radio Show

I warned Nancy when she asked me if I wanted to try co-hosting on her radio show a couple times a month, that she should be careful of what she’s asking for. I’m going to give it a try this coming Tuesday @ 9:15am on KVOT (1340 AM in Taos)
[Breakfast with Nancy, KVOT].

I have no idea what we’ll be talking about, but hopefully spontaneity is my game. Nancy had asked me to send her some ideas and of course I woke up the next morning with a list that bordered on insanity. There were enough ideas in it to cover about a year of radio shows. Luckily she didn’t boot me after that first email and said, let’s just go with what’s happening. I’m hoping we might talk about the KickStarter fundraising revolution which I’m about to embark on and I think might be of interest to a lot of the artists in Taos. Also, because Nancy is so active on the political/economic revolution, I’m thinking I might bring up what I call the “Chicken Little Syndrome” and how do you overcome it.
