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.
