Maria Elena Ipiotis


Mary has been a member of the KUNM Raices (roots) Colectiva since 2002. She happily hosts a couple of programs a month; Saturday afternoon 2-5PM, occasional Salsa Sabrosa Show Friday nights from 7-10PM and/or the Fri/Sat morning 2-6AM Overnight Freeform Program. During the Saturday afternoon time slots she hosts, listeners are apt to hear a lot of easy to take Bossa Nova, Samba, Latin Jazz, Mariachi, Nuevo Flemenco and Chill-out Latin Lounge music.  It's the rhythm, passion heard & felt in music that inspires her to share it with the family of listeners.
