One of the best things about doing Alt.Latino is the constant conversation we get to have with listeners. It makes the show feel like a club that gets together to share new favorite records.

Usually, it's a piece of cake finding music to share on the show, but recent weeks in Washington, D.C., have been a little hectic, what with work, snowstorms, and then there were some more snowstorms. So I dug into our recent listener suggestions and found some real gems — a mix of Cuban soul, Colombian dance, Mexican-American hip-hop and this way cool mix of vintage Latin pop music that Felix 'discovered' (don't ask).

So keep it coming! Who else should we hear?
