Santa Fe New Mexican

Author, radio producer, and aural historian Jack Loeffler’s new memoir, Headed into the Wind, takes us on a journey of inner and outer freedom in both nature and society. After witnessing an atomic bomb test, Loeffler realized that the world was insane and sought new paths, including the counterculture, the environmental movement, jazz music, old-time Hispanic music and culture, Native American ways, meditation, and more. A longtime radio producer, he’s recorded thousands of hours of interviews with some of the most important voices of our time, and has recorded wildlife all over the West—including a close encounter with a rattlesnake.
