Ídolo: The Ballad of Chalino Sánchez

334

(English, Español) Imagine if Frank Sinatra went on stage every night with a gun in his waistband. Or if Tupac got into a shootout on stage at a rodeo. Well, Chalino Sánchez did just that. In this podcast, we examine the extraordinary life of the “King of Corridos,” and attempt to unravel the mystery of his death. Chalino’s story, his own narcocorrido, is the ultimate ride through the drug cartel world, the underbelly of the Mexican-American music industry and a murder mystery for the ages. 

Imagínate que Juan Gabriel se subiera al escenario cada noche con una pistola en la cintura. O que Babo, el del Cartel de Santa, se agarrara a plomazos sobre el escenario con alguien del público. Ese era Chalino Sánchez. En este podcast examinamos la extraordinaria vida del "Rey de los Corridos", e intentamos resolver el misterio de su muerte. La historia de Chalino, su propio narcocorrido, es un viaje a través del mundo de los cárteles de droga, el mundo de la industria musical Mexicano-Americana y un asesinato sin resolver para la posteridad. 

Hosted by Erick Galindo in English. Conducido por Alejandro Mendoza en español.
