We have a lovely local AM radio station here in Denver that I listen to all the time called Studio 1430. Their music hearkens back to the era of my grandparents--all their standards are, well, the standards. It's great background music while I'm in the kitchen--the perfect tunes to croon to as I'm concocting something new.
On Saturdays, the station does a show called Departure Time, where featured guests talk about their travel experiences, tips, and recomendations--and on April 23rd, at 1pm Mountain time, I'll be a guest on the show! Previous guests have included travel gurus Rick Steves and Rudy Maxa.
Please join me while I talk about Argentina with host Rick Crandall. I'll be dishing up my favorite things about the Southern cone, from wineries to recipes to must-see stops on your own vacation!
You can stream the audio live from the AM Studio 1430 Denver website. I'll be adding a recorded version of the show to my media page sometime soon. Thanks for tuning in!
Gabriella Cavellero, the force behind the Tango Seduction show I wrote about last year, has created another masterpiece! This time, she's brought us a family-oriented bilingual theater production, combining tradtional Latin American stories and music told/sung in English and Spanish.
This is just the sort of thing that Denver needs more of! Not only does it combine some of my favorite things--music and theater--butI can bring along the whole family. Affordable tickets, and something we'll all enjoy--is there a better way to enjoy a Saturday afternoon?
Thank you and felicidades, Gabriella, and hope to see you all there!
Last week I had the chance to pose a few questions to Argentinean director Fabián Hofman, who's poignant film, Te Extraño, will screen at the 2010 Starz Denver Film Festival. The film follows two brothers, adolescent Javier and his older, politically involved brother, Adrian. Based on Hofman's real life story during Argentina's military dictatorship of the 1970s, the plot takes a turn when Adrian, like 30,000 others during the 'Dirty War', disappears.
A special thanks to Sr. Hofman for agreeing to this interview. (Follows in Spanish)
