Radio and Tv Marti's staff, broadcast live messages to families in Cuba from their relatives visiting the 13th Cuba Nostalgia Fair 2011 taking place at the Fair-Expo Center at Tamiami Park in West Miami. Saturday May 21, 2011.
I strongly disagree with the characterization in Wilson Sayre's May 20 radio report that "only sketchy data exists" on Radio Martí's audience.
