When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station would play right now? The station would be 95.1 Latino Vibe.
What's the first album you bought? Haha, the first album I ever bought was *NSYNC, No Strings Attached.
What's the first concert you saw? That would be Papa Roach in El Paso for a street fest.
What's your favorite concert you've ever been to? My favorite concert would have to be probably the Andrea Bocelli concert in Las Vegas last December.
What's the last song played on your music player? The last song would be "Take You Down," by Chris Brown.
Preferred format: CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-Track or digital? I prefer CD, but nowadays, everything is easier if digital.
What's your favorite album? My favorite album as of right now is the soundtrack for the The Mask of Zorro.
Who is your favorite singer or band? My favorite singer is Ne-Yo -- although it does switch back and forth with (Frank) Sinatra.
Does you computer track how many times you've played something -- if so, what's at the top of the list? Yes, it does. The top of my list would have to be "Never Knew I Needed," by Ne-Yo, from The Princess and the Frog soundtrack.
What was your favorite new or new-to-you album from the past year? I didn't really have a specific favorite album this year. I don't like to focus on just one album, I like to just pick and choose from songs that I Iike.
What band do you wish was still together? I wish Sublime had the original singer. Their music is still good, but the original lead singer had such a beautiful voice, and it's so sad that his life was cut short before he could have been super-big.
What one song would you play if you had a world-wide radio audience? Hm. The one song I would play if I had a world-wide radio audience would be "El Tango de Roxanne," from Moulin Rouge. It's just so sensual and passionate, that I feel it would make anyone want to try to tango.
Who is your favorite local artist? I don't really have a favorite local artist when it comes to music. I suppose I don't really know any local artists around here, although there are tons of talented individuals out there who are just waiting for their big break.

What is your favorite local venue to see music? I actually like to walk down Mill in Tempe during the weekends and listen to people just playing in the street. They always bring a special flavor to the night.
What is your favorite music video? My favorite music video would have to be "Gangnam Style!" Now that is a song that you see everyone dancing to now. Even my 8-year-old brother is doing the dance and showing me up.
