Cleveland prides itself on being a music-rich city. It's where DJ Alan Freed coined the term “rock and roll,” and it’s the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. Now you can add Latin American music to the mix.

Spanish-language radio stations, which are common on the coasts, have begun popping up in places like Cleveland. Less than a year ago, one of the city’s alternative rock stations switched formats to focus on Spanish-language music, and the new La Mega 87.7 FM is a hit among Spanish-speakers in Northeast Ohio.

Open enrollment for health insurance started last Saturday. It’s the time for people to buy a health plan, or to renew what they already have. And for the first time this year, the state’s health exchange is offering health plans for small businesses. 

Facebook and Apple made news with their decision to offer their employees up to $20,000 towards the costs of egg freezing and other reproductive technologies. Jeannie Yandel speaks with Brigid Schulte, reporter for the Washington Post and author of Overwhelmed: Work Love and Play When No One Has the Time, about other ways employers might help their employees attain work-life balance.

Marcie Sillman interviews KUOW health reporter Ruby de Luna about some of the changes the Washington state Health Exchange has made. Last year more than a million Washington state residents signed up for health insurance through the Washington Health Plan Finder website.  Saturday is the first day of open enrollment. People need to sign up or renew their health care plans by February 15, 2015.
