KUVO celebrates La Molly (Gallegos) host of Super Sonido with La Molly…
“So, uh, what ARE you?” is probably the most frequently asked question of Colorado native La Molly. Like many Latinx people, La Molly has been on a search for what, or rather who, she is her whole life. Having grown up rather rootless, La Molly turned to music and thus was born the podcast “Super Sonido Show” (and now the radio show “Super Sonido”), to explore a similar identity quest in music like digital cumbia, electronic folklore, and tropical punk. Born and raised in Boulder, La Molly has lived in Colorado most of her life. She has been in Denver since 2008.
La Molly received her Bachelor’s degree from Colorado State University in Ethnic Studies and her Master’s degree from CU Denver in Social Sciences and Women and Gender Studies. When her head isn’t buried in headphones you can find her painting, drinking coffee, and reading a book or at the park playing hide and seek with her son Joaquin.
Tune in to “Super Sonido” with La Molly on Sundays at 4 pm.
About Women’s History Month — Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982, as “Women’s History Week.” Throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month.” Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.
