Tag Archive: Cuba


This is not what I expected from Cuban radio, but I should have.  It’s eclectic, interesting and devoid of ads (Cuba has no advertising…radio, TV, billboards…you name it).  This is what radio was like in the US before Clear Channel & their corporate chums began trying to sterilize our minds for profit.

You’ll probably get a lot more out of this series if you’re fluent in Spanish, but I know almost none and I love it.  I bet you will, too.  Throw this in your iTunes for something completely different.


On this episode:

We hear instrumental covers of some classics.   Even the intro/outro music between songs is glorious, kitschy & endearing (They use a clip of ELO, folks–I mean, come on.).  Enjoy!/¡Disfrutar!

“By the way, if anyone here is in marketing or advertising…kill yourself. Thank you. Just planting seeds, planting seeds is all I’m doing. No joke here, really. Seriously, kill yourself, you have no rationalization for what you do, you are Satan’s little helpers. Kill yourself, kill yourself, kill yourself now. Now, back to the show. Seriously, I know the marketing people: ‘There’s gonna be a joke comin’ up.’ There’s no fuckin’ joke. Suck a tail pipe, hang yourself…borrow a pistol from an NRA buddy, do something…rid the world of your evil fuckin’ presence.”
–Bill Hicks

“Sometimes people change their name to be more ‘radio-friendly’. It’s possible the birth name of #MichaelBublé is Michael Tittphúck.”
