Music Director & Lunchtime at the Oasis Host

Arturo has been part of "The Oasis in the City" since the spring of 2003. Before that, Arturo was part of Miami's jazz station for 13 years.

Arturo was fortunate to have been raised listening to the progressive radio stations of Los Angeles, instilling in him a love and knowledge of many music styles while his parents hosted many a Cuban music dance party during his growing up years.

An award-winning Music Director, Arturo was awarded Music Director of the Year for three consecutive years while at KUVO/KVJZ and once before in Miami.

Arturo brings an enthusiastic and passionate approach to music programs, coupled with pertinent information in the traditions of classic jazz radio. Arturo proudly states, "Jazz is my favorite four-letter word and the world's greatest art form."
