Delgado remains a mystery
Q: I grew up in Southern California in the 1960s; radio was a big part of my life. On one station, a young girl would shout out, “Tina Delgado is alive! Alive!” Who is this Tina Delgado? — A.Z., Torrance, Calif.
A: On Los Angeles radio in the late 1950s and early ’60s, disc jockey Don Steele — also known as “The Real Don Steele” — would play a recording of a woman shouting, “Tina Delgado is alive! Alive!” between top 40 hits. Steele died of lung cancer in 1997; he never divulged the meaning. Steele was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1995.
