This Week’s Captions: Music Lessons with Bill Cosby

THIS WEEKS SHOW:
It’s a special episode of Latino USA. The legendary Bill Cosby joins host Maria Hinojosa to talk about his love of salsa music and the musicians who made it. We learn about Tito Puente and other musicians who helped shape Latin jazz, and find out why calling the music “Salsa” might be all wrong in the first place. We reflect on how Mr. Cosby’s work welcomed Latinos and other immigrants to the American family. And we hear life lessons from a nearly 100-year-old Rumba player.

ABOUT CAPTIONING:
Latino USA, the foremost Latino voice in public media and the longest running Latino-focused program on radio, is the first radio program to commence equal-access distribution via Captioning for Radio. “Research has shown that Latino children have a higher incidence of hearing loss and deafness than other populations,” according to Latino USA’s Anchor & Executive Producer Maria Hinojosa. “When the opportunity to break this sound barrier came to our attention, we were pleased to embrace this new technology developed by NPR Labs and Towson University for the thousands of Latinos with serious hearing loss.”
The International Center for Accessible Radio Technology (ICART), a strategic alliance between NPR and Towson University, is co-directed by Mike Starling of NPR and Ellyn Sheffield of Towson University.
