Two songs; “BABY, I LOVE YOU” and “OH’ LITTLE GIRL” received extended airplay in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Their 12” single “I’M SO CRAZY FOR YOU” was well received on both the West & East coasts and in Europe. Their cumbia “LA CITA" and ranchera “SOY COMPESINO” received airplay on regional & national Spanish radio stations.
