How KUVO-FM got its Latino Jazz groove

The National Federation of Community Broadcasters 36th annual conference is finished, and I had a great time moderating one of its workshop panels: Great Music Programs. The panelists included Florence Hernandez-Ramos of the Latino Public Radio Consortium, Anthony Bonet of KALX-FM in Berkeley, and Bonnie Simmons of KPFA-FM, located in that same city. Over the […]
