Dear Gato 103.1,
Is it true? Are you really gonna play cumbias? Because lots of stations have said they were and ended up in a funky morass of Durangense and Marco Antonio Solis.
There are a few tears for the former station that came before you, perhaps it’s because those folks haven’t really learned to appreciate the beauty and the glory of what’s called (in English) Mexican Regional Music but what we call NorteÃ±as, Rancheras, Banda, Corridos, Cumbias and yes, even Duranguense.
I promise to love you Gatito if you play my two favorite songs on Los Angeles radio at the moment:
Los Picadientes de Caborca – La Cumbia del RÃo
Banda MS – EL Mechon
Con Mucho CariÃ±o,
Links to the real videos (embedding disabled, how dare they?). La Cumbia del RÃo is one you should especially check out as it shows real Los Angeles residents dancing about their places of employment in a humorous and entertaining way!
