Today, I continue my work at KPFA co-producing regularly scheduled programs “La Raza Chronicles,” a Latino magazine format show of music, interview, politics and poetry, as well as “Open Book: the Poet to Poet Series”. I also contribute to “Radio Chronicles” and Women’s Magazine. Check out the posts below to hear some of my programs.
