Mi Vida en Radio KAMA 750 AM
We are now into week 5 of Charlando con la Gringa, the bi-cultural, bi-lingual radio show that brings the voice of El Paso Media Group to Southern New Mexico, Northern Mexico and West Texas.
One of the best parts of the show is the chance to humanize guests (namely politicians) on live radio by asking them totally silly questions. And part of the show will definitely be dedicated to politicians as they are local celebrities in El Paso and they can be very funny. One such politician that is very very funny is County Commissioner Veronica Escobar (pictured here). Several Fridays ago, she imitated a screeching monkey (flailing arms and all) for the listeners, labeling the imitation the “full frontal monkey.” This screeching brought about a new series “Politicians imitating Animals” where I ask every politician that comes on the show to imitate an animal and then we’ll pick a winner. City Council Representative Susie Byrd was on the following week, she imitated a cow. Scheduled to appear in the next month are City Council Representatives Melina Castro and Emma Acosta and Senator Eliot Shapleigh. I wonder what animals they will imitate?
