I am old school — I still get my music mostly from CDs, and I had a stack to play for this show.

Sometimes the music speaks for itself. So that's what we're doing on Alt.Latino this week. As they used to say in the radio biz, it's all about "less talk, more rock," with stops in Brazil, Chile, Mexico, LA and Brooklyn.

Put on those earbuds and accompany me on this musical journey.
