November 27, 2012

Univision Radio has a new Tropical outlet in New York, flipping Regional Mexican WQBU to Tropical Hits as "Mami 92.7 FM."

Alipio "Coco" Cabrera and Federico "El Pacha" Martinez will debut daily shows on Mami 92.7 on December 3.
Perez continued, "New York is a hub of Hispanic cultures, and Univision Radio provides the most complete entertainment offering with WXNY 96.3 FM featuring Luis Jimenez; Radio WADO 1280 AM, which is home to the New York Yankees and Brooklyn Nets; and now Mami 92.7 FM, featuring the greatest hits ever from salsa, merengue, bachata, and more."

I was very pleased to hear that a new tropical music station had taken the airwaves. I was also thrilled to hear that my buddy "Coco" was given the opportunity to do what he likes best...on FM!! However, the station started out OK, now it's headed towards what the others are playing. The reason is that "La Mami"is playing too much of one thing and not truly diversified. Certainly not enough salsa. It should stick to it's goal and play more classics or take the chance of losing a dominant crowd!

I was so thrilled to find this station two weeks ago, that I told all my friends about it. Especially since the other stations were not playing the same ole tunes and alot of reguetton etc. 92.7 really started off with a bang, lots of ole salsa, which in nyc we no longer get to hear as much on commercial radio. The station reminded me of Z93.7 in Puerto Rico which plays the best salsa of all times! I loved listening to 92.7 on my way to work and even listened to the commercials so as not to miss

Felicidades. Necesitabamos una estacion radial que no deje morir tanta musica bella. Les pido que en este mes de Diciembre pongan musica navidena, aguinaldos de nuestros paises hispanos. No tienen que cambiar su programacion, que esta estupenda, pero dejen sonar una que otra de esta epoca navidena. Seria maravilloso. Please, Please. Gracias.
He estado recomendando la emisora a todos mis familiares y conocidos. Bravisimo!!!!!
