As host of radio show, "Vamos a La Playa," DJ Laura of Miami (real name Laura Sutnick) takes local listeners to the proverbial beach with handpicked dance-y, tropi-cool tunes perfectly suited for this flamingo pink town.
Laura was also programming director and music director at WVUM 90.5, the University of Miami's indenpendent radio station, for 4 years. Under her direction, the station won MTV's Best College Radio Station in the country last year.
Laura recently completed her graduate degrees at UM, however, and is therefore no longer able to work at the campus station.
So she recently joined local internet station Wynwood Radio, where she'll again serve as programming director and broadcast two weekly shows of her own. Tune in Monday afternoons for her select set of Italo Disco, Nu Disco, Latin Oldies, and early House.
You can also find Laura behind the decks at any worthwhile party in Miami -- she's spun alongside Tanlines, Grimes, and Junior Boys, among dozens of other acts traveling through South Florida.
HuffPost Miami spoke with Laura about her switch from the dial to online, the shows she's booked under Nightdrive, the production company she cofounded; and where to get the best matzoh ball soup in Miami.
