Dr Computer (Alex Neuman)


Dr Computer is able to join us in the first hour of today’s program. We chat about the World Youth Day and how it affected (if at all) the communications infrastructure. Yesterday one of the Internet providers went off line for most of the day. Do they realize their responsibility and the possible damage to corporations due to the inability to conduct business?

In the last hour of today’s program we welcome back Ricardo Velasquez. Ricardo has a new single out “Escucha tu Corazon” which he performed at the World Youth Day in the presence of Pope Francis. We talk about his career and his new venture musically and coming up next month is Musicalion in which Ricardo and his wife Madelaine are the founders.
