It’s Mothers’ Day! The program starts out with several songs dedicated to mothers and then continues with new music from France based on the theme of Prisoners of Love. These songs are about unrequited love, breaking up and others either sad, longing, angry or happy to be gone!
The first ½ hour is dedicated to songs about mothers and motherhood. The second ½ hour consists of Cuban songs inspired on cries that peddlers use to sell their merchandise. The last ½ hour presents music from Uruguay; the last 12 minutes include a short story by the Uruguayan Horacio Quiroga (1878-1937).
