    in Entertainment

    One of my favorite singers, guests, and people - Margo Rey revisits us tonight, with her just released  single, "Tempted."  "'Tempted' is a song that has always made me happy when I sing it," Rey says. "Its soul, groove and lyrical content make for a perfect combination. I'm so thankful to Squeeze for writing such a memorable classic." "Tempted" marks Rey's fourth AC entry, all since her 2011 arrival with "Let the Rain," which reached No. 17. All four titles have been released on the independent Organica label."
    Born in Acapulco, she laid her professional foundation with over a decade of classical music training under the exclusive tutelage of classical voice professor Dr. Luther Stripling. At the age of 16, Rey fronted an all-female rock band "Debutante" (The Debs,) touring  the U.S. as well as overseas and also sang in a 3 piece power pop band called "the Ritual" before beginning a career in jazz. After becoming the band leader for the Latin/Jazz R&B Sextet "Miss Margo and the Lost Souls," Rey was signed to an indie label  where she recorded a Tejano/Pop Spanish album. This release boasted one top five and two top twenty singles. She soon caught the attention of actor Edward James Olmos who recommended her for a principal role in the Broadway-bound musical Selena Forever. This led to a number of theatre credits including Saturday Night Fever, Latin Heat, Like Jazz, Zorro and Canta Lunga. During this time period she began crafting and touring her own original music that she calls “Organica.”   Website: http://margorey.com/

    Margo Rey returns with a message of Hope and Darelicous!

    in Family

    Margo Rey joined us earlier this year to share her incredible music and charitable work with Brides Against Breast Cancer, as well as her own journey through the disease as a two time "cancer warrior." Margo Rey's music has captured audiences worldwide with unforgettable melodies and connection to life's greatest struggles. Her biggest hit, "Let the Rain" — co-written with the legendary John Oates — remained on the charts for 21 weeks. She then generated more than 2 million dollars with the song to benefit the non-profit Brides Against Breast Cancer (BABC).


    Margo Rey began performing at just 11 years of age. A native of Mexico, she's fluent in English and Spanish, and possesses conversational skills in French and Italian. It's no wonder she's been able to deliver her alternative pop songs in eight languages! Now, Margo isn't only promoting the "I Do!" campaign for BABC, she's also teamed up with her husband Ron White on a Darelicious challenge to raise $10K!


    Margo says, "education and personal support are just as critical as prompt medical treatment." She volunteered her time to be the national ambassador for "Brides Against Breast Cancer" while undergoing chemotherapy and planning her own wedding to the famous comedian and actor Ron "Tater Salad" White. Margo is also about to re-release her holiday EP, This Holiday Night just in time for the holiday season featuring the original title track, “Silent Night,” and “Toyland” and just recorded  a Spanish version of “This Holiday Night.” We'll share some of Margo Rey's latest music and hear about Ron White's hilarious dare campaign in support of BABC, as well as get his take on being a caregiver.

At the age of 16, Rey fronted an all-female rock band "Debutante" (The Debs,) who toured the U.S. as well as over- seas and also sang in a 3 piece power pop band called "the Ritual" before beginning a career in jazz. After becoming the band leader for the Latin/Jazz R&B Sextet "Miss Margo and the Lost Souls," Rey was signed to an indie label  where she recorded a Tejano/Pop Spanish album.

This led to a number of theatre credits including Saturday Night Fever, Latin Heat, Like Jazz, Zorro and Canta Lunga. During this time period she began crafting and touring her own original music that she calls “Organica.”   She wanted something ‘lo-fi’ as opposed to the cloned sounds of today’s pop culture environment and needed her music to sound like her rather than the equipment it was recorded on. "Plus, she says, "I feel a huge affinity- love affair even, for the singer/songwriter era of the seventies and eighties. Habit is a collection of songs with a penetrating pulse that defines my human condition of late. Put together the myriad of contrasting emotions of my past two years in a set list, and you have Habit."   Margo will give two copies each of her CD "Habit," and her new 3-song Christmas EP to LIVE LISTENERS who phone in! website: http://margorey.com/home

    Margo Rey's music has captured audiences worldwide with unforgettable melodies and connection to life's greatest struggles. Her biggest hit, "Let the Rain" — co-written with the legendary John Oates — remained on the charts for 21 weeks. It then became the theme song for the Brides Against Breast Cancer charitable organization providing more than 2 million dollars in support and services for those facing the disease. 


    Margo Rey began performing at just 11 years of age. A native of Mexico, she's fluent in English and Spanish, and possesses conversational skills in French and Italian. It's no wonder she's been able to deliver her alternative pop songs in eight languages! Her love of performing flowed over into dancing in New York City Broadway shows and voice-over talent in the animated film "Beverly Hills Chihuahua."


    Margo's belief that "education and personal support are just as critical as prompt medical treatment," was solidified during her own battle with breast cancer. She volunteered her time to be the national ambassador for "Brides Against Breast Cancer" while undergoing chemotherapy and planning her own wedding to the famous comedian and actor Ron "Tater Salad" White. Her nationwide visits during the campaign helped raise funds for education, information and outreach services for cancer patients and their families.
