Dir. Edgar Soberon Torchia (Panama, 2019) 60 min / Rated G
PANAMA RADIO is the story of two girlfriends and a music store. They worked together from the 1950s to the 80s, during the peak years of recorded music sales, in a store in the center of Panama City, visited by Tito Puente, La Lupe, José José, Celia Cruz, Julio Iglesias and many other stars. It is also an account of the evolution of women’s roles in the post-war labor field in Panama, and of the boom of national orchestras and combos, as told by its two protagonists and popular artists of the times.
