Best Spanish-Language
Radio Station Houston 2006 - Mega 101

Mega 101 doesn't have an entirely Spanish-language lineup; they play a Spanglish mix of hip-hop, rock, salsa and reggaet?n. So what makes it so popular with Houston's Latinos? It's the music, combined with the "Latino and Proud" attitude, that have earned it legions of listeners. The morning show features the Mexicanz, a crew of irreverent, opinionated, gossipy DJs. And there's Carmen. Ay, Chihuahua, Carmen. An unidentified male comic does the voice of Carmen, who plays phone pranks on unsuspecting Houstonians every weekday morning. (She once called a delivery service and asked how much it would cost to deliver a package from Latin America -- with her cousin inside.) Everything ends up being very estoopid...and hilarious.

Witheld - Your comments reflect a huge misunderstanding of the Hispanic market. Yes, the DJs can barely speak Spanish but there is nothing wrong with that. They are part of a subset of the Hispanic market that is more acculturated. This segment of the Hispanic market experiences a strong desire to identify themselves with their roots. There is a retro effect.

I do like the radio station because I think it is the only radio station that plays salsa and merengue. However, I agree with the comment left above about the DJ's Spanish. I do love Carmen though ;o)

What is funny about this whole "Latino & Proud" motto they have is how "unLatino" the DJs can be. Most of them can't even speak proper Spanish. And those that do speak Spanish mostly have really, really bad American Accents.
