Miscellaneous musings from the perspective of a lefty (both senses) atheist with a warped sense of humor.

I am a geek, but I do have some redeeming social skills. I love other people's dogs, cats, and kids. Snow sucks, but I'm willing to put up with it just to live in Madison.

La Original

2007 July 2

Letters to the Editor

Your review of the program offerings of The Mic 92.1 skipped with unwarranted haste over the Friday- and Saturday-night Mexican-music program La Original. My own Spanish is limited to Basic Gringo Tourist (por favór, gracias, sí, no, uno, dos, etc.), so I treat the talking part of the show like a game, to see how much I can translate, while tuning my ear to the cadences of native speakers. But you don’t have to understand a word of Spanish to appreciate the most joyful music and exuberant hosts to be found anywhere on the airwaves. I defy anyone to listen to La Original for 5 minutes without feeling happier.
