Exactly 40 years ago — June 22, 1975 — José Massó was establishing his roots in Boston. He had arrived just two years earlier to work as a bilingual teacher at Copley Square High School.
Back then, his students encouraged him to use his bilingual skills to speak to a wider audience — and that's just what he did.
He came to WBUR and launched "Con Salsa" — part music show, part party, part community center. And, since then, he's been on the air almost every Saturday night at 10 p.m. to play a carefully selected mix of Latin music.
In 2010, José was inducted into the Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
