My pop, the king of mariachi mix-tapes, was excited when i suggested we do a little podcasty 1 hour mix of favorite songs and sounds from his collection to share. I mean, what’s a visit home (after 2 long years in the PRC!) without attempting to revisit the cultural household sounds of my youth and make a little radio show with them, right?
Featuring 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!
