A new sound -- and language -- at WMIB

Another English-language radio signal went off the South Florida air Friday when WMIB-FM (103.5) ditched Radio its hip-hop music for the so-called Spanish contemporary format that features artists like Selena, Juanes, Ricky Martin, Juan Luis Guerra, and Celia Cruz. WMIB, which had been doing its hip-hop thing under the marketing name The Beat since 2003, now calls itself Super X. As always, Adam Jacobson's Hispanic-media website has more details.

I cannot stand commercial hip hop, Spanish contemporary and especially Spanish hip hop of any kind (reggaeton and such nonsense). It's extremely low-class and highly uncool.

What I do like is Spanish oldies like they used to play on Clasica 92 and Spanish-language garage rock and bubblegum such as Los Saicos, Los Shains, Los Salvajes, Los Locos del Ritmo, Roberto Jordan, etc. Luckily there is the Interwebs to satisfy that particular desire.
