WBOI's Own "Father Christmas" Shares His Passions Over The Air

Nov 30, 2016

For the past five years, volunteer show host, Rob Martinez, has been sharing his musical expertise and his audio production skills over the WBOI airwaves, most notably, with his weekly "Movie Music Spotlights" and annual "Nights Before Christmas" music specials.

As part of Julia Meek's ongoing "Behind the Mic" series, she coaxed Martinez away from his extensive record archives, and into the studio, to discuss how his pop culture sensibilities drive his deep passion for public radio.
