All shook up!

January 8th, 2014 at 11:13 am by under 2 KASA Style

Today, Elvis would have been 79 years old today.  In honor of the King, we’re gettin’ all shook up on 2 KASA.  You can get in on the festivities today at the Downs Casino & Racetrack.

Harry Shahoian has been performing as the King for 20 years and is in town for one day with Elvis Through The Ages, a celebration of the music from Presley’s early career up through the late part of his career.  Two shows are happening at 3p and 7p and the tickets are only $10!  Hop on to their website and purchase NOW!  Uh huh huh…

We’re also talking about staying on track with our resolutions and being honest with what we want.  Often times, we set unrealistic expectations for goals…which sets us up for failure.  Vanessa Horn is a career and life coach, as well as author of the book, I’ll Have What She’s Having.  She’s developed a formula to set us up for success in achieving our personal, professional and long-term goals.  Find out what she can do for you!

If what you want is a weekend getaway with the family (and your four-legged friends), Travelin’ Jack highly recommends Red River.  Nearly the entire town is pet-friendly, accommodates dogs and even caters to them.  It’s a great resort town whether or not you hit the slopes.  Find out more at

If what you really, really want is a new car, why not hop behind the wheel of a 2014 Jeep Cherokee?  We continue our series on the North American Truck of the Year finalists with the Cherokee Trailhawk.  A nicely-loaded model is available under $30k (what!?) and can be yours from the good folks at Mark’s Casa Chrysler/Jeep on the westside.

If what you really, really, REALLY want is a new home -you could win one in a raffle AND help out El Ranchitos de los Niños.  They’re hosting the Home of Your Own House giveaway, in which you could win the keys to a brand-new, handsomely outfitted home on the westside of Albuquerque.  A raffle ticket costs you $75, but the value reaches far beyond the “ticket price”, considering the support it will give to El Ranchito.  Remember- they receive no federal funding… they rely on folks like you to help enrich the lives of needing youths in New Mexico.

Lastly, if all you really need is to get rid of those broken down Christmas lights, ACE Hardware has you covered.  Steve Corona is in the Builder’s Source Kitchen with details on Lights for Life, a recycling program that will take the copper wiring from defunct Christmas lights, sell the copper to recycling plants, then donate all the funds to cancer research and support for children.  While you’re there, you can get in on some steep discounts for next year’s Christmas lights!

Tune in tomorrow, folks.  We’re talking with tech-saavy ladies from the Women in Tech Celebration.  Plus, we’re hopping into the all-new 2014 Chevy Corvette.  The Aux Dog Theater will be here to talk about their upcoming production of Little Shop of Horrors.

Make it a great day, y’all!


Uh huh huh… here’s me and the King!

  1. Greetings Chad, I want to thank you for the plug for Lights for Life and our string light recycle program. We have partnered with hundreds of Ace Hardware stores across the country. You may want to call us to get your information, though. We do not take apart the string lights to sell the copper to recycle companies, we sell the string lights to the recycle companies and are paid a certain amount per pound depending on the price of copper. The proceeds of our recycle campaign actually goes to help families that have a child with cancer. We work directly with the families. One of our goals for the future is to be able to help with childhood cancer research. Thank you again for helping to get the word out about our seasonal campaign.
