Of his next broadcast, host Phillip LeVasseur writes: “Ash Ruiz was recently revealed to be the legitimate love child of John Lennon, Aunt Jemima, Carmen Miranda, Prince, Lisa Lampanelli, Rumi … and your own precious lil’ heart. Having performed in his teens for millions of screaming fans across the planet with Latin-sensation band, Menudo, Ash then dove off the top of Macchu Pichu into an intense period of open awareness and self-inquiry among the shape-shifting shamans and their wondrous means of dying deep in the Amazonian Rainforest.

Ash Ruiz was raised around the globe, traveling as a member of the Latin teen-sensation band, Menudo. At 16 he traveled to Machu Picchu for a video shoot. When he stepped off the helicopter and touched the ground, everything disappeared. There was no Ash Ruiz, no Machu Picchu, no llama, no Peru, no Earth, no Universe. All that was present was the ordinary radiance of clear, all-pervading awareness. The inspired mainstream music he began writing from that moment would eventually be featured on ABC Good Morning America, at the United Nations, and before tens of thousands of people across USA and Canada for the next 20 years.
