Known as the “king of radio,” Polito left Puerto Rico to try his luck in NYC in 1957. Two years later, he landed a job at the now defunct WEVD-AM. The 71 yr-old DJ has been working for the Spanish Broadcasting System (SBS) for the past 20 years. His popular radio show “Salsa con Plito” airs Saturdays and Sundays from 12 to 8 pm on Mega 97.9.
The first star-studded concert will be this Friday at the Madison Square Garden, with an incredible lineup of guests like Juanes, Alejandro Sanz and Laura Pausini. It’s followed by a salsa concert on Saturday, featuring some of the best performers in that genre, including his personal fave, Gilberto Santa Rosa.
