Eduardo "Piolin" Sotelo is greeted by fans at an April 10 rally in Los Angeles.
In Los Angeles, one of the nation's most popular Spanish language radio personalities has played a huge role in turning out the massive crowds seen in recent immigration rights marches. Eduardo "Piolin" Sotelo says that, for him, it's a personal crusade.
Mandalit del Barco follows the DJ at a recent rally in Los Angeles — where he's greeted as a celebrity hero — and spends some time with him in the studio, where in rapid-fire Spanish he cajoles his audience to become more politically aware and take up the activist mantle.
