Known as "The Golden Falsetto," Miguel Aceves Mejia achieved the peak of his success as a ranchera and film star in the late '50s. His early career breaks were in radio, where he got a gig singing on a show sponsored by his auto factory boss, which led to a gig at the legendary Monterrey station XET. There he formed a trio with Emilio Allende and Carlos Sorolla, later moving to Los Angeles to pursue a solo career. It was there he developed the falsetto singing style that became his trademark. In 1940, he relocated to Mexico City for another radio job, this time at XEW.
