“El Vacilón del Mandril” has been a hit since it first aired on KLAX 97.9 La Raza.

Now, El Mandril is making a name for himself by going solo and populating his broadcasts with classic guests and friends, including the loveable “La Dona,” who has helped the show’s popularity skyrocket.
“This country has given me the opportunity to make my mark on KLAX 97.9 La Raza and to strengthen my career in the States. I’m extremely happy that I’m now going to the next level which will allow my audience not only to accompany me on the radio airwaves, but they will also be able to see me on Mega TV,” said El Mandril.
