Roberto Vega Rueda prefers that they call him Pedro. That is to say Pedro Roberto, because that was his underground name when he joined the 26 de Julio movement in Holguin. He was born in the town of Chaparra – today's municipality of Jesus Menendez in Las Tunas province, but settled down in Holguin.
Holguin: Nelson Cruz, a Manyfolded CMKO Sttafer
His life is closely linked to CMKO Radio Angulo, a station that will mark 80 next August the first, 2016.
He accomplished several tasks there, for he ran the Economy Department, he was its director... and took on whatever task was called on because he wanted that CMKO would always be the way Manuel Angulo dreamt of.
He said he always followed CMKO shows, even late at night, despite his wife' scolds, and to his fortune he still has the sense of belonging.
To his professional skills one can add that besides being talkative he boasts of his rich memory. He still keeps in his mind very clearly the inauguration of today's home of CMKO, on Maximo Gomez, street.
It was a rainy day of October 10th, 1968, when Cuba was remembering the start for the country's independence.
Roberto Vega Rueda also worked in the local TV channel, but never forgot the years lived in the dear CMKO, where he caressed dream and left prints behind.
He is 80 today, and he is one of those indispensable voices at the Radio Angulo that will be marking eight decades of history; an event that will be a deserved homage to its staffers and radio goers in the Cuban province of Holguin and nearby jurisdictions that follow CMKO's shows despite having home other local radio station.
It is that the radio shows of the station founded by Manuel Angulo Farran 80 years ago stand out for their distinctive features, their quality and bewitching airs.
