Radio El Monte 2

Categories: Radio El Monte.

Riding on the enthusiasm from the previous show, father and son caballeros, FC2 and FC3 served another heaping helping of south of the border tunes both from the elder’s collection and recordings & selections chosen by the younger. This followup to the first Radio El Monte, came at the tail end of an very enjoyable visit home after 2 years in the PRC – just before heading back to the other side of the same wormhole. Some folks take photos to preserve the spirit of a time, some folks make little radio shows – lucky for you & your commute listening that we decided to be the latter for another hour.

Features music and other fun recordings. If you understand Spanish, you’ll get the back-announces and other half of the banter. Otherwise, you can follow the playlist below. Enjoy!
