Tiempo Libre is a seven piece group based in Miami. The band's leader Jorge Gomez tells Marco Werman about his teenage years in Havana when he and his friends would try to listen to banned American music from radio stations in Miami by putting up makeshift antennas on the roof. These experiences are remembered in the group's new CD "My Secret Radio."
