Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Yesterday the entire cast of El Show de Enrique y Joe on La Kalle 98.3 FM shaved their heads on-air to promote world peace.

"With the violence reigning in Colombia and Venezuela, the war in Iraq and the fact that the Dalai Lama has threatened to resign if peace in Tibet is not restored, I ask that as my birthday wish, my colleagues join me in shaving our heads," said Joe Ferrero, who turned 40 years old.

Shock jocks with sensitive souls? Howard Stern's acclaimed sweetness has nothing on the goofy and popular radio jocks that returned to Miami airwaves last week. See the other reasons why the New Times hearts Enrique and Joe in this week's story.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
