“El Cucuy” ruled the airwaves in the mid 90’s, holding the #1 spot in morning radio in the L.A. market for years, besting even Howard Stern. He also hosted a short-lived television show on Azteca América in 2008.
Singers Graciela Beltrán and Tony Meléndez joined the 61 year-old Honduran-born “Cucuy” during the morning ceremony held at 6141 Hollywood Blvd.
