Radio Mixteco

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

Yesterday, The New York Times ran a nice article on “La Hora Mixteca”, a weekly radio program broadcasting out of Fresno, CA and directed toward the Oaxacan immigrant farm workers in central California.  The host, Filemón López, is Mixtec and the program regularly features Spanish, Mixtec, and other languages of Oaxaca.  The NYTimes article includes a sample.  The program has also been picked up by Radio Bilingüe, the only Spanish-language public radio network in the US, which allows for the show to be picked up over the Internet as well on Sundays from 10-2 (unclear is that is PDT or EDT).  But independently, Radio Bilingüe seems worth checking out.
