MY TOP 30: Year 1 Posts of ALL-TIME!
3. Makano pop quiz
Around June of 2009 I was tapped to feature local station, Univision’s 5th Annual Premios Texas. Not only did I host a ticket giveaway for the event, I also featured pop quiz interviews with 4 of the nominated and/or performing artists as a weekly countdown to the event that went down on Thursday, August 13, 2009 and aired later. That year was the only year THE REAL popolio was contacted to cover Premios Texas.
My fellow Panamanian and reggaeton artist, Makano, was the Week 4 Premios Texas Artist. This is the third showing by an artist from this special Premios Texas content on this countdown and leaves only one pop quiz unranked. This is highest and last showing by Premios Texas pop quiz Artist. The first was Anita Benner repping Los Bad Apples at Number 27, who was originally the Week 3 Artist. The second was Grammy-Nominated, Edinburg-based, Tejano artist, Bobby Pulido at Number 8, who was originally the Week 2 Artist.
It was exciting to feature an artist that shares my cultural roots. And, one that is so popular not only in Panama, but in Latin America, to boot. To this day, this interview continues to get multiple hits with numbers that eclipse most of the other Year 1 posts.
