Born in Mexico City, raised in Michoacan, and moved at the age of 10 to Fresno, California. This is but one of the factors which makes Rafael Pulido, el Pistolero, a unique radio personality.
His older brother, gave Rafael his first “break” by taking him inside a radio station at age 15. Destiny placed him on Oregon’s first Spanish station, where he was offered a job.
After a year doing overnights in Oregon, a radio opportunity with a Fresno radio station opened up. Rafael turned this opportunity into success by turning his morning show into the number one show in the entire market. What is more he also helped turn the station into the number one station in the entire market. This success led to an opportunity in Chicago.
In Chicago Pistolero broke various ratings records, including becoming the first Spanish speaking personality to achieve the number one spot for the entire market, and helping his station become the first Spanish radio station to also become number one in the entire market.
Most recently Pistolero was heard nationally via a syndicated show. In spite of the short lived project it provided him with national exposure and the a national fan base.
Throughout his career Pistolero has provided Star Power with a Human Touch. He uses the radio waves to benefit and help the needs of his listeners through fundraising for families in need, discussing controversial hot topics and keeping perspective through laughter
