On Los Angeles radio show, a peek into the love lives of immigrants pining from a distance

LOS ANGELES — On weekday evenings, immigrants hailing from Latin America and living in the U.S. tune their radios to Oswaldo Diaz's show.

The Spanish-language radio program fields calls from lovesick listeners wondering if wives left behind in Mexico and deported husbands remain faithful despite months and sometimes years apart.

Diaz calls partners pretending to be from a new company offering to send a free box of chocolates to "someone special."

The question then becomes: Do they send it to their significant other?

More than 2 million people tune in for the unique look into immigrant love lives.
