According to an early morning Facebook post from local radio station owner Scott Hutton, longtime Santa Fe promoter/DJ David Lescht passed away Thursday night.

Lescht was best known as the Executive Director for Outside In Productions and its summer music series, the Santa Fe Bandstand, as well as his work as longtime DJ with radio station KUNM. The cause of Lescht's passing is currently unknown, but all of us here at SFR would like to extend our sympathies to Lescht's family and friends. He was 64.

On Friday, Santa Fe Mayor David Coss issued the following statement about Lescht's passing:

Santa Fe lost a great individual with the passing last night of David Lescht. Carol and I were deeply saddened to hear that we had lost David.  We want to express our deepest condolences to his family and his many friends and colleagues. David did so much for Santa Fe and was a key member of Santa Fe’s thriving music scene. His work with Outside In, Youth with Promise and Santa Fe Bandstand was invaluable to all Santa Feans.  Every Santa Fean loves the Summer Bandstand David helped to create. David gave our town many pleasant evenings on the plaza.
As mayor, I am confident that David’s work will be continued by his colleagues. City officials will do everything we can to make sure David’s work is honored and that the work he started is continued throughout our community.
