On ‘Tickets @ 2’ it’s “Oye Como Va” from Carlos Santana.

Salsa legend Tito Puente wrote the song and recorded it in the early ’50s. While Puente was very popular in the Latin community, Santana’s cover became a hit and helped introduce Puente to a wider audience. On Santana’s version of the song, everything, including the guitar wails and keyboards, follow the original music.

Gregg Rolie, who sang on many of Santana’s early hits, took the lead vocals on the song. Rolie was a founding member and keyboard player for Santana; he joined Journey in 1973.

When we play it between two and three we’ll be looking for lucky caller 13 by calling 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to the Farmers Tennis Classic at the Los Angeles Tennis Center at UCLA.
