with Luis Luna
Luis Luna —
About ten years ago, I “discovered” a program on WPKN. The show focuses on alternative music from the Latin-American diaspora; their experiences, and the realities of the documented & undocumented immigrant community here in the United States. I became a fan of the program.
One night I ran into a group of people at a New Haven ‘dive’. It turned out that three of them were hosts of ¡Barricada!, and without knowing it, I was telling then that they should tune in to their own radio show! Big laughs followed; then I received a formal invitation to visit the WPKN Studios and check out their program.
It turned out they were, also, deeply involved in the fight for social justice in Connecticut. I became an activist, and community organizer. Now, I host my own self titled program, Luis Luna, mixing alternative music & social justice issues that amplify the collective voices in our community.
I am passionate about the music I bring to the airwaves from all corners of the American continent. Music that exemplifies all the different genres, and sub-genres being produced. On any given show, you might here artists from: Colombia, Mexico, Argentina, California, Puerto Rico, Ecuador, Uruguay, Peru, NYC, Bolivia, etc.
My show is on the 3rd Thursday, of the month, from 4 to 7 PM.
