ILLEGAL intern Radio #82 – Jan. 25, 2017

This weeks show was a big push to remind listeners of one of Los Angeles’ best FREE events in DTLA, Night On Broadway. Organized by Councilmember Jose Huizar of the 14th District and the Taking Back Broadway Organization. So what better way than to present a couple of the bands playing the event, Eduardo Arenas (bassist of Chicano Batman) who has his solo release Nariz, along with Bryan Ponce  (The Altons). Council Member Jose Huizar also called in and shared more information about the event and the revitalization of the Broadway Corridor.
