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.
