Elizabeth has produced or co-produced several conferences, workshops, and concerts, over the last twenty years, including most recently, the two-night sold out concert and devotional chant events for the Krishna Das Kirtan Wallah Tour July 2014 in Santa Fe, NM.
In multimedia, Elizabeth recognizes the need for honest and up-to-date information for parents so they can make educated choices about the health and well-being of their family.

JON charts his life journey this way. Child, world traveler, student, musician, skier, photographer, writer, broadcaster, political activist, environmental activist, teacher, father, emotionally guided missile, sononaut, psychonaut, and Taiko artist. Growing up as an Air Force Brat and living in Alabama, Panama, New York, and Texas, prepared him to live among the vortex of cultures that is New Mexico. “Santa Fe satisfies my nostalgia for winter. (It’s not as cold as New York). And, it’s higher, drier, and closer to the mountains (than Texas).”
A stint of volunteer health work in Ecuador familiarized him with some of the arts and craft which are sold throughout the world. “When I moved to Santa Fe, I thought there were lots of people who had been to Ecuador too,” he says. “Turns out, the shoulder bags they had with images of Mount Chimborazo all came from Jackalope!” Such is Santa Fe.
The psychonaut in him helped Dr. Rick Strassman with his pioneering studies at UNM, paving the way for current research on PTSD, cancer, and therapeutic treatments.
As manager at AV Systems, he worked with many corporate, nonprofit, government, and educational groups in all the finest hotels in Santa Fe. This includes producing live events on location.
All his skills come together each year producing and managing the stage at the Santa Fe JIN (Japanese Intercultural Network) annual Japan Cultural Festival-Matsuri. Being a percussionist and Taiko player opens his door to working with well known Taiko artists in North America and Japan.
Jon first operated a radio console in college at KNTU. He also engineered at Radio for the Blind in Dallas. In addition to his print, photo, and video skills, his KSFR show “The Accent on Jazz” delighted Santa Fe listeners in the ‘90s. As a “sononaut”, Jon looks forward to bringing new and delicious sounds to Transitions Radio Magazine and new adventures through Transistions Multimedia.
KEN YAVIT is the Folk Music Director, responsible for procuring and airing some of the best Folk and Singer/Songwriter music played on Transitions Radio Magazine (TRM) (hot link). Each week he hosts the Folk and Singer/Songwriter music segment on TRM, live from his home, through the agency of the internet and high-speed telephone lines. He provides color commentary on the artists and reports the weekly playlist to the national Folk DJ listserve, which reports and compiles airplay statistics for Folk, Bluegrass, Singer/Songwriter and several other “Folky” genres of acoustic music.
His home is also the venue for some of the best house concerts in the NW suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. The series, Glenside House Concerts, has been produced and hosted by Ken and his wife Donna since 2003, and presents performers in Folk, Singer/Songwriter and occasionally in Comedy and Blues. Through his connection with the artists who perform at Glenside House Concert, as well as his attendance at other performance venues, Ken adds a much-needed and deep perspective on the music aired on TRM.
Ken and Donna also perform professionally as “Ken and Donna.” (They came up with the name of the act themselves!) Their repertoire includes covers of many of the artists that are played on TRM, as well as a sampling of the traditional and contemporary folk canon, and feature two-part harmonies and simple, yet interesting instrumental arrangements. They are also active members of the Bucks County Folk Music Society. In addition, to stay in touch with the ever-changing music scene, Ken attends live concerts as often as possible, and has recently completed his third weeklong music cruise in the Caribbean.
Ken’s pre-retirement professional career included stints as a human services caseworker, carpenter and cabinetmaker, lab assistant and several decades in the IT profession as a Help Desk Analyst and Technician. He has been helpful in resolving technical issues with the software and hardware in the Transitions Radio Magazine home studios for the entire length of his association with TRM. Even though retired, he maintains a part-time freelance IT consultancy.
Ken has also been a student of A Course In Miracles for 40 years and, for the past 9 years, has actively participated in a weekly study group. He was involved in the Rebirthing Breathwork communities in both Philadelphia and Santa Fe in the 1980s.
