Welcome to the East LA Revue Internet Radio Website
The East L.A. Revue Internet Radio was established in early 2007 by Steven & Janie Chavez as a commercial free media venue dedicated to preserving the art of early American Rock & Roll and Soul music. This genre is favored by the West Coast East Los Angeles Chicano audience that represent the first English language Latino generational audience. This audience has lived through generations of social change and the birth, evolution, and continued enjoyment of this music. Also, keeping a foot in our Spanish language roots music, and promoting established, as well as new, music talent.
As a fully independent and privately funded entity that has developed a Worldwide cult audience over the past 11 years, East L.A. Revue Radio enjoys the distinction of playing bi-lingual (English & Spanish) music in different genres spanning the 1940’s era to today. It does this by playing music 24 hours a day by several experienced and talented DJ’s. These DJ’s enjoy playing the music as much as the audience listening, receiving e-mails from different parts of the World.
Music Culture ~ It is said that a culture is defined by its Art…and a culture’s Art reflects its history for future generations to learn and evolve from. That being said, this site is dedicated to the Art of music that has evolved from a Latino and African American perspective in America. Without being racially hostile or challenging, welcoming all races of all colors to join us in the enjoyment of music from our past, that brings us to our present, leading to our future.
Since the end of World War II, Latinos have evolved into a musical legacy that has crossed racial, language, and genre barriers to the enjoyment of several generations. Starting with such musical pioneers as Lalo Guerrero and Don Tosti of the 1940’s, to Rock & Roll legends of the 1950’s such as Richie Valens, Chris Montez, Sunny Osuna, Dimas Garza, and the Storytellers, to 1960’s Latin Legends as Ralfi Pagan, Thee Midniters, Cannibal & The Headhunters, Joe Bataan, the Premiers, the Blendells, Max Uballez and the Romancers, to popular 1970’s groups such as Santana, Malo, Tierra, Nuestro, Los Lobos, and El Chicano, to the several outstanding cover groups that keep the music alive today.
During the 1960’s & 70’s, the combination of all the afore mentioned talent has been become known as the Los Angeles “Eastside Sound” promoted by such legendary Los Angeles radio DJ’s such as Art Laboe, Hunter Hancock, Chico Sesma, Huggy Boy, Wolfman Jack, the Marvelous Montique, Lucky Pierre, and others during the Viet Nam war era, as 3 of the largest U.S. Army, Marine Corps, and Navy bases were located on the West Coast within driving range of Los Angeles, and East Los Angeles became the hub of lowriding, live music & dances, and a sense of “refined cool” for the millions of young men and women coming to the West Coast that chose the Rock & Roll, Soul, and romantic ballads over the frenetic hard rock “hippy” culture of San Francisco at the time.
Although it has grown in popularity across the Country and several other Countries around the World due to the advancement of the Internet, for several reasons, much of our music played here has become tagged as “rare” because of the limited production, distribution, and exposure to mainstream entertainment media at the time it was recorded, along with racial barriers that existed at the time. Many of the recording artists have sadly fallen into obscurity.
Therefore, the East L.A. Revue Internet Radio stands dedicated, committed, and true to the Eastside Sound for your continued enjoyment. We are keeping it alive , like nobody else can!

As the Radio Aztlan Chicano Director, El Beto-Man aka Roberto Tijerina-Cantú it is my pleasure that in Collaboration with East LA Revue we are glad to present our pre-recorded programing for your listening pleasure. Unfortunately, KUCR 88.3 FM is broadcast live On Air & simulcast on the world wide web. KUCR does not have an Archival Page of ancient, old, & current musical shows.
The Radio Aztlan staff personally record our own shows for our own personal Archives. El Beto-Man has been re-airing Radio Aztlan KUCR 88.3fm shows for the past twenty years on East L.A. Revue to introduce more listeners to our Friday night Showcase of Chicano Alternative Programing. We hope that everyone enjoys the courtesy provided by East L.A.
