"I remember at the time I was looking at a radio report and suddenly saw Manu Chao getting like 20 spins a week in Albany, NY. What is this? How is this possible?!"

That was 2009. WEXT was two years old. Slingerlands native Josh Norek was living in California and was Vice President of Nacional Records.  

Each week, Josh Norek and Ernesto Lechner bring us an hour of great Latin Alternative Music (Saturdays at 8pm) with The Latin Alternative.  Missed this past week's show? You can hear it online with the PRX player.
