R&B singer Miguel is causing a commotion in the Alt.Latino studios.

MIGUEL MIGUEL MIGUEL MIGUEL. That's what I'd like this week's show to be all about.

But I didn't get my way. Felix saved all of you from a podcast about my obsession; guess I'll have to wait until he's out sick! But we do have a terrific episode, featuring a unique instrumental composer, a musician from the Dominican Republic, an ethereal Mexican electronic band and my favorite Colombian neo-soul singer. It's a week of musical potpourri you're sure to love.
