As volunteer host for WBOI's weekly Connexxion Latina, El Salvador native, David Calderon has been sharing his musical and cultural passion over the airwaves here in northeast Indiana for the past 16 years.
Calderon's show is WBOI's exclusive Hispanic language program, and showcases a wide variety of music styles and genres from all of the Latin American countries. He is gratified to have developed a broad fan base, including many listeners that don't speak a word of Spanish.
As part of Julia Meek's ongoing "Behind the Mic" series, she sat down with David earlier this week to learn when, where and why those passions, and his drive to connect. all began.
Connexxion Latina airs every Sunday at 6:00 p.m. on 89.1 WBOI, or stream online at wboi.org
Arts reporter Julia Meek will contunue to look "Behind the Mic" at one of 89.1WBOI and Clasical 94.1 WBNI's show hosts each month, so listen for more of these interviews throughout the year.
