BBC Radio 4, Thursday 19th May @ 11.30am (British Summer Time*)

Although this broadcast will probably not be available in the United States, the program should be freely available online from Wednesday 25th May:

It’s being broadcast to a World Service audience of fifty million people around the world on shortwave: from 25th May.

Inspired by the book Hotel Mariachi, radio producer Tamsin Hughes visited Mariachi Plaza in November 2015, where she lived for more than a week talking with mariachi musicians and others in this historic corner of Boyle Heights. Evangeline Ordaz-Molina, who was born just blocks from Mariachi Plaza and who wrote the Introduction to Hotel Mariachi, narrates this documentary, which will be broadcast to over fifty million listeners worldwide.
