Gabriel San Roman also picked up on the story of Desmond Child’s prediction of the future of Latin Alternative, in his ‘pondering’ column of the OC Weekly today. San Roman sites his own experiences of border radio stations playing bi-lingual rock music within the same block – just what Christian Mejia was talking about. Also, San Roman’s observation of what was said at the Latin Grammys the other night is also eye-opening.
While it might be a bit fuzzy, I’m starting to see a picture developing of the Latin music industry dancing around the issue of firmly launching the Alternative format at commercial radio. I think radio is looking around the room to see who is going to step up first. Whoever does, though, will possess a license to print money.
