Thanks to the support of my family – particularly my brother Ronald Chaluisan Batlle – I am able to put together my memoirs in 2000 (“Newricane”) which in turn (through God’s grace) results in the Off Broadway production of “SPIC CHIC” (2001-2004) inspired by a Latin NY editorial written by Publisher Izzy Sanabria 1974 also entitled “Spic Chic”. That show took myself, Maria Hernandez and Classical Composer David Amram to the Bonn Opera House in 2004. (I meet David while working for Latin NY in the seventies and it is a lifelong friendship since then; without Maria Hernandez (Lola Magdalena) I don’t know where I would be today. I’m grateful that my father saw all this success before he passed in 2006. And likewise that my mother is still alive witnessing the next chapter of her crazy artist son’s career – telling you this story (contained in the publication of “Spic Chic” as a book of poems and stories covering work from 1975-2009 inspired by another set of great mentors: Cardinal Hayes English teacher Bill Kerrigan (editor) and Steve Cannon (Fly By Night Press/A Gathering Of The Tribes NYC.) And now comes the payoff putting all these elements together: establishing WEPAwebTV in 2001 and reaching back to film a documentary on MR SALSA Izzy Sanabria, THE WORLD WIDE SALSA EXPLOSION which has ultimately become the story I have been searching for during 56 years of a life that sums up an American experience as a Puerto Rican. Pa Que Lo Sepan! WEPA!
