One thing R* did right to the urban latino radio station San Juan sounds is that every track on there is very well chosen. Mostly all those tracks are fire in their own right. Reggeton with various artists that are hits during the 2008 era. I was actually surprised the first time I heard they have Daddy Yankee as a DJ.
R* was influenced politically by the Mexican insitutue of sound. Since they ban Narco corridos that instigate violence, mexicos insitutue of sound used alternative genre songs as their representatives. the tracks chosen do not represent the whole outcome what latino actually hear. All most none of these songs during the development of V had been hits nor they were released around the time. Mostly all of them are from the early 2005’s or even earlier (old music). Don Cheto is a pretty well known Los Angeles comedian, so I understand that.
As a spanish speaker I’m disappointed in the lack of quality from IV to V in regards to the Spanish transition of radio stations. When I play IV, san Juan sounds is the one of the many radio stations I hear. I expected in V to actually hear narco corridos, mexican gangster rap, actual pop, and music of that development period a more modern take. That BeepBeep song is actually the most popular song, its catchy i get that. The bottom line is, the music played by san juan sounds clearly represents the genre and the ethnicity (Ricans & dominicans) of the people of LC. While the music of East los Fm represents the small community of alternative, which i also like but what they did mostly take all the track slots. East Los Fm doesn’t represent the whole latino community of los Santos which is mostly mexican. I dont even tune to this radio station as a spanish speaker. That alone speaks volumes, I have to be honest, whoever enticed R* to add these tracks have political ties because they dont want the latino radio station to have a negative stigma that the music instiagates violence. I hope R* doesn’t commit this error again.
