Vote or Dia de los Muertos! On this episode of Radio Pocho we ask adonde van los muertos as we celebrate Day of the Dead. Leo Dan, Los Bukis and Los Tigres del Norte keep us reminiscing over you.

We also encourage our listener to go out and vote, otherwise we’ll play a whole set of Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias, and Shakira on the next show! Don’t make us do it!

We feature tracks by Acapulco Tropical Cafe Tacvba which both have muerte chiquita in the title. Go figure.

Minnie Riperton takes us down memory lane with The Time, Michael Jackson, and the Temptations.

As always we keep it funky with tracks by Twilight, Rome Jefferies, and a Dexter Wansel track that will have you feeling the sweetest pain.
