This week V.B. Price talks with music commissioner Rick Huff about the often overlooked New Mexico music scene. Huff states that with proper support form the state legislature New Mexico, like Texas, is capable of a booming music industry. Unlike the film industry, the talent and revenue potential is completely home-grown.
