Audio slide show: Making a connection
For more than 50 years, Art Laboe's soothing radio voice has been as cherished among Latinos in the Southwest as Chick Hearn's rapid-fire staccato once was among Lakers fans.
The Art Laboe Connection plays in more than a dozen cities in four states and draws about a million listeners a week. The 84-year-old disc jockey helps listeners celebrate anniversaries, mourn their dead and profess their love.
