About ten years ago, I “discovered” a program on WPKN. The show focuses on alternative music from the Latin-American diaspora; their experiences, and the realities of the documented & undocumented immigrant community here in the United States. I became a fan of the program.
One night I ran into a group of people at a New Haven ‘dive’. It turned out that three of them were hosts of ¡Barricada!, and without knowing it, I was telling then that they should tune in to their own radio show! Big laughs followed; then I received a formal invitation to visit the WPKN Studios and check out their program.
It turned out they were, also, deeply involved in the fight for social justice in Connecticut. I became an activist and community organizer. Now, I host my own self titled program, Módulo Lunar, mixing alternative music & social justice issues that amplify the collective voices in our community.

For over eight years Luis has hosted his own monthly program Módulo Lunar on WPKN-FM Community Radio in Bridgeport, CT, where he mixes alternative and politically charged Latinx music with discussions of social justice issues, to amplify collective voices in his community.
