In response to my recent Mexican Radio article a reader wrote:
...But it's not just from Mexico. Here in NYC,there are now 15 Spanish-language stations on broadcast radio,and most of them are marketed to Puerto Ricans.The Miami-area, last time I heard,has 14 broadcast stations broadcasting mostly to Cubans.So,while La Conquista radio is primarily Mexican,it's also Puerto Rican,Dominican and Cuban(the "Cab Lats")...
The reader is right, of course, it's not just "Mexican Radio", although the song was cool so the title was catchy. In fact, in the article I quoted about two Tulsa stations going Spanish, one of the stations is becoming 'a Spanish-language pop station that plays "rhythmic Latino pop," a genre popular in Latin American countries outside of Mexico.'
