Polito Vega Obituary, Death Cause – My deepest condolences to the family and friends of my dear buddy Polito Vega, who passed away today and was given his wings. During the time that Polito was a friend of mine and worked at La Mega 97.9 in New York City, he played the reggaeton version of my classic song “Puerto Rico Hoo.”
This version featured the late Yomo Toro, Julio Voltio, Lumidee, and Joel Ortiz. 2006 saw the release of this particular edition. In 1960, he made his debut on the radio with the Fiesta Time show that was broadcast on the WEVD-AM station. He eventually became the most famous voice on Spanish radio and ruled the station.
They revealed the unfortunate news this morning on New York City’s La Mega 97.9 radio station. The beloved radio great Polito Vega passed suddenly just a few moments ago, and the cast and crew of the show “vacilondelamanana” just broke the news to their audience. I ask God to grant him the peace that passes all understanding.
There is a joke that has a strong following inside the music industry, and it gets told quite regularly. An cheerful conversation was started between Pope Francis, Polito Vega, and two friends who were out walking together in Central Park in New York City when the three of them chance to run into each other. Both of the friends were taken aback when they were pulled over.
Yeah!, another respondent exclaimed, unable to continue. Who knows who the man in white is, but if Polito Vega considers him a friend, he must be a fishy character! In the novel about life in a New York prison that Al Bermudez, a former police officer, authored, he recalls a scene in which one of the inmates, a Hispanic guy, tells him after a particularly tough Saturday, “Look, brother, tomorrow is Sunday, Salsa Festival.”
Alongside Polito Vega as a companion. Choose a cozy area where you can unwind, turn on some music, and you’ll find that the time flies by in no time.
