Go Cat Go!! It's Rockabilly Latino Style on "American Latino TV" This Weekend!

Plus, the Burlesque Beauties of Ivan Kane's Forty Deuce on "LatiNation"

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 15, 2007 -- AIM Tell-A-Vision Group's nationally syndicated show, "American Latino TV" ("ALTV"), celebrates another first in pioneering television programming with a look at the Latinos in Rockabilly scene in the U.S.

"ALTV" takes viewers back to a simpler time when Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and good ole rock-n-roll filled the airways, young men rolled up their jeans, sported pompadours and drove around in souped up hot rods with their gal. Fifty years later, things have changed dramatically and the term "greaser" is considered more a badge of honor than insult as more and more young Latinos are fueling the resurgence of this lifestyle that celebrates America's musical and cultural heritage.

"ALTV's" coverage includes interviews and live performances from the recent Viva Las Vegas Convention, the largest Rockabilly convention in the world, and exclusive chats with recording artist Omar Romero of Omar and the Stringpoppers, a look at rockabilly fashion, hot rods, tattoos and more.

"American Latino's" companion show, "LatiNation" joins the retro theme by visiting modern day burlesque club, Ivan Kane's Forty Deuce. Burlesque, popular in the 1950s and 1960s is also seeing resurgence with help from some sexy Latina dancers.
