Found In Translation Episode 341: Host Ray Collazo was joined recently for his birthday by many of his compadres Elbert Garcia, Jorge Martinez, Danilo Rodriguez, Luis Cerros and Leo Prieto for a raucous discussion on the lighter side of his life.

New York ‘90s Music Scene: As college students at Columbia University, Collazo and his homies rubbed shoulders with Hip-Hop and Latino music legends such as Tribe Called Quest, Cypress Hill, Stretch and Bobitto, The Fugees, Brand Nubians, Minya Oh, Marc Anthony, La India, Antony Santos and countless others. The crew discusses how these moments weaved into their lives as part time club promoters with their famous alias “CocoRico” Productions, being mentored by the legendary John “Gungie” Rivera. The crew shares with the Millenials/Generation Z how the “Salsa/Merengue” scene morphed into “Reggaeton/Latin Trap/Bachata” through groups like Aventura who broke barriers for their generation.

Sports: Collazo is a life long sports nut and kicks it with his buddies to talk about some of their favorite sports memories. Hear how Collazo was surrounded by Dominican Blue Jays fans during his lowest baseball memory, an update from MLS Executive Danilo Rodriguez on the Beautiful Game in the United States, the state of Latino Kansas City Chiefs Nation and what is Strat-O-Matic?
