Mark OswaldProducer/Host "Mark Jr.'s Hi-Fi House Party"
Mark Oswald is a retired and recovering print journalist, an exile from his native Arkansas who has lived and worked in Santa Fe for more than three decades. His newspaper work included stints as a reporter for his hometown Arkansas Gazette and the Santa Fe New Mexican and as editor at the Albuquerque Journal North. Along the way, he managed to amass an extensive collection of records, CDs and tapes and a lot of what the Rolling Stones might call useless information, about musical esoterica. He was co-host for eight years through the 1980s of a punk-meets-blues radio show on Little Rock public radio station KABF. Mark and his wife Ruth Williams have one son, Oscar, a poet and teacher at the University of Idaho with his own public radio music show.
