En Espanol


The network tried to reach out to everyone. There have always been many Latino soldiers.  Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, every latino country has been represented.  In World War II "Chiquita" was one of the first AFRS shows directed to this audience.  In 1955 the show was still running. 

There was a wide variety of talent over the years.  At the end of the big network years we had Mary Helen Barro.

Charlie Tuna?  Always great.  How did he do it, always a great show and as close to perfect consistency than anyone.  There have been a lot of greats over the years but for a Dan Ingram or a Larry Lujack there's changes over the years.  Charlie never really changes, he nailed it..  Let's revisit 1973, it's Thursday.  Stay Tuna'd.
