Center Stage on Live365 this week is Mas Chingon Radio - "The People's Station." We spoke with station manager Juan Mendoza about their history with radio, their station's programming, and we got some music recommendations. Check out the interview below!
What made you get started in radio?
I've been a fan of radio DJ Wolfman Jack since I was a kid. I also love music.
What brought you to Live365?
The music licensing, and knowing that royalties are being paid to the artists.
What's your favorite part about running your own radio station?
The best part is the ability to give all artists a chance to be heard.
Tell us about your station's programming. What can listeners expect when they tune in to your station?
A big variety of music, including Latin rock, cumbia, ranchera, and Tejano, both new and old. It's music that FM and AM won't play, with great DJs and syndicated shows. To see a list of weekly shows and personalities, head to maschingonradio.com.
Name one artist that you play on your station that is underrated in your opinion.
What's your favorite music memory/moment?
Getting together at Tejano Fan Fair to meet and greet and watch performances.
