Francisco Frank Pardo II understands the power of music to evoke memories. That’s why his show—Mañanitas Capirana—is all about nostalgia. Frank airs his show on KBBF Thursdays and Fridays from 6am to 8am. That way, this programmer is up with the sun and playing the music and memorias his listeners, many of whom are campesinos doing long, hard days of agricultural labor. He wants workers who listen to experience joy as part of their day. Frank observes, “What I say on the radio, people listen to. The fieldworkers listen. I speak their language.” In his mind, the show is a way to express his gratitude for these laborers and the fruits and vegetables they harvest. He follows his Thursday show with “Cantares de mi Tierra,” an hour-long tribute to the conjunto de arpa.

KBBF celebrates children and families at its Dia Del Niño event, packed with free and fun activities. Live music and performances will be provided by Voces Mexicanas, comedian Luis Vasquez, theater students from Windsor’s Cali Calmecac school, and the troupe of Ballet Folklorico Sarita. And, yes, there will be activities for children, including piñatas. Every week, the Women’s Spaces one-hour program highlights the women and organizations that make a difference for people around the world. The show is broadcast live Mondays at 11am, and is replayed at 11pm. After a brief hiatus in which favorite shows of the past were replayed, host Elaine B. Holtz is bringing back the live program beginning this month.
