South Bronx store offers treasure trove of Latin music

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

Latin music lovers are likely to find their favorite records at Casa Amadeo in the south Bronx.

Owner Miguel Angel Amadeo has been running the oldest Latin music store in the area since the 1960s.

Amadeo, who is also known as "Mike," has also composed hundreds of hit songs for artists including Celia Cruz.

With the evolution of music, Amadeo says sales have declined, but he keeps it open because it's home.

"What bothers me is that if I'm gone one, two, three or four years from now, what's going to happen to all this," Mike says.
