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.


Raices is a KUNM Volunteer Collective dedicated to bring listeners the rich and diverse Latin American,Chicano and Hispano musical roots and alternative culture, rhythms, instruments and singers or musicalgroups. From our particular life experience we all have an individual passion and love to share suchsongs and musical pieces you won’t hear anywhere else.

Raices Shows air Mondays 7:30 to 10 pm, Saturdays 2 to 5 pm. “Salsa Sabrosa” is also brought to you byRaices Collective Fridays 7 to 10 pm; and “Corazon Tanguero” every other Monday 9:30 to 10 pm.
