You can find me on KPFA 94.1 fm every Tuesday at 7 PM.  I co-host the weekly broadcast of  La Raza Chronicles, an hour long magazine style show of Latino cultural and public affairs.  As part of each radio show, I interview leading and emerging members of the Latino community here and abroad. Some of interviews from this show are in the posts below.

On the first Friday of the month, at 3 PM, on KPFA (94.1 fm) I host a half hour literary program, Cover to Cover, Open Book: Poet to Poet, where I invite writers, poets, and lyricists to read their works and discuss their creative process on the air.  Selections of past programs are coming soon to this page.

Please tune in and listen.  If you want to hear the entire program of La Raza Chronicles, it is available on the KPFA.org web site.
