Vicki Solá first arrived at WFDU-FM in August, 1981. In the beginning, she hosted a weekly Jazz program, and served as Jazz Music Director for several years. After slipping more and more Salsa and Latin Jazz into these shows, she created her present program, Que Viva La Música, with station management's blessing, in February 1983. Vicki and her long running program provide the New York-metro community with authentic Salsa and Latin Jazz, produced by a singular mix of famous performers, plus artists rarely heard on commercial stations.
Her mission is to perpetuate the music of the greats--Machito, Tito Puente, Tito Rodriguez, and Ray Barretto, and so many others--and also provide a venue for the countless talented, underrated veterans and new artists alike who are struggling to present their product to the public.
 
Outside of the station, Vicki has been featured on American Latino TV, served as an advisor to the Smithsonian Institution, and has written articles for  internationally circulated trade periodicals, including Latin London Magazine, Descarga Catalog, and Latin Beat Magazine, for which she writes the column, "A Bite From the Apple."  Vicki recently published a SciFi/Fantasy novel, The Getaway That Got Away (Full Court Press), and is planning a sequel. A member of several animal welfare organizations, she remains committed to fighting cruelty. She lives in Bergen County, New Jersey with her son Frank and rescued Shepherd-hound, Cookie.

Latest from WFDU General Manager, Kenny O'Boyle

Hello everyone! 

I hope you and your loved ones are safe, healthy and managing okay during these unprecedented times.

I wanted to give you all an update, but unfortunately there is not much to update you on. The question I get more than any other from our staff and listeners is, “When will WFDU be able to resume normal, live programming?” Unfortunately, I do not have an answer to this question. Logically, I would have to assume that WFDU Staff will not be allowed back inside the station until the government stay at home restrictions are lifted. Who knows when that will be? Even when those restrictions are lifted, it’s still ultimately up to the university.

What can we do and what are we doing?

We are now accepting new material and recordings of past shows for our programs on HD2 and will begin airing those ASAP 

I speak on behalf of the entire staff and I’m sure many of you too when I say we all can’t wait to return to normal. We all miss doing our shows and most of all, interacting with you! Please be patient. We all have to be. 

I very much appreciate all of the listeners that have reached out via email, phone or Facebook. Overwhelmingly, the messages are positive and appreciative that WFDU is still on the air even in this limited capacity. It warms my heart to hear that WFDU can be a source of comfort during all of this.  

If you would like to reach out with any comments, questions or concerns, please do.
