Local co-host of Some Call It Folk
Pam Stakes has a long history with KEDT-FM having begun her association with the station in 1990. She worked at the station into the mid 90’s hosting every program with the exception of Morning Edition at one time or another. Pam was one of the original hosts of “Some Call It Folk”. When Pat Smith (former host of Some Call It Folk) moved to Austin she resumed hosting duties on the folk show along with Brad Brown. She recently (happily) returned to employment at the station taking over the weekend hosting duties. The Saturday/Sunday shift was the original shift she worked when she first came to work at the station.
Born in Corpus Christi she is a 1972 graduate of W. B. Ray High School. She attended Del Mar College and received her Bachelor of Music Education degree from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, TX. During her music career Pam has been a school choir director, Minister of Music, church pianist and private instructor before taking her current job as Director of Orchestras at Moody High School and South Park Middle School where she has taught for the last 7 years.
Pam, known for her ability to sing harmonies can often be found sitting in with area musicians or recording backing tracks at local studios. For the last 18 years she has been a volunteer at the Kerrville Folk Festival where she manages the Hospitality Booth, selling CD’s for the billed performers. This led her to producing The Burning Bush Coffee House Concert Series held monthly at Parkway Presbyterian Church. The series features many of the same touring singer-songwriter’s that she features on “Some Call It Folk.” She is also a certified Reiki Master and ordained minister.
