While checking on the various blogs that I frequent I happened on Daisy Martinez’s Blog and found her post for an up-coming broadcast that is of interest to Puerto Ricans. I am putting the information here so my readers can make arrangements to try and connect with the broadcast which will be on December 25, 2007.
Here is the excerpt from her blog.


Merry Christmas y ¡Feliz Navidad!

LA PARRANDA, an original radio play by Esmeralda Santiago and Daisy Martinez, will premiere during the second half hour of NPR’s “All Things Considered” on Christmas Day, December 25.
To find your local station visit:
LA PARRANDA is about two sisters, one in Puerto Rico, the other in New York, whose relationship evolves over a twenty-five year period through phone calls on Christmas Day. The play is performed by Esmeralda Santiago and Daisy Martinez and features historical as well as contemporary Puerto Rican holiday music and traditions.
After broadcast, the radio play can be heard and/or downloaded from
You can also go direct to Daisy Martinez’s Blog and check out some of her recipes for Christmas and other times. While there leave a comment and tell her El Bohemio sent you!
