The ALACristina Show

Cristina Boyd has been broadcasting “Amenidades Latino Americanas “since 1982 from the KKUP studios. ALA is a program dedicated to the Latin community of the Bay Area and those aficionados of Latin music. One of the biggest decisions I had to make when I started the show was whether to do my program only in Spanish or in both Spanish and English, but thinking of the friends I have from other cultures that love Latin music; I decided not to limit myself and the show, and to do it in both languages
