Vince Martinez taps the toe of his cowboy boot on the bare floor, waiting for Ron Sotelo to finish searching. "You're skating on very, very thin ice, Mr. Sotelo," he says. Sotelo, 47, gaunt, shirtless and bleary-eyed, peels through bunched handfuls of papers and rummages in a rickety night stand. Try as he might, however, he can't come up with the doctor's letter that explains why he's been delayed in entering a drug rehabilitation program at the L.A. Mission.

Long before Los Angeles' present-day Golden Boy, Oscar De La Hoya, was born, the city had the original Golden Boy. He was Art Aragon, a welterweight boxer who probably filled the Olympic Auditorium in the 1950s more than anyone else. Aragon, like De La Hoya, was booed often, even when he wasn't fighting.

The recording studio at radio station Power 106 filled up in a hurry. Half a dozen Chicano rap artists, all from Oxnard, had descended on the Burbank-based hip-hop station to take their turn behind the microphone for a new program spotlighting their brand of barrio music. The hosts, a pair of former Oxnard deejays named Khool-Aid and Johnny Cuervo, called it "an 805 invasion."
