The communicator, who is stable and out of danger, went into cardiac arrest on October 11
Last Tuesday, October 11, Juan Pablo Ordúñez (Talavera de la Reina, age 66), better known as El Pirata, suffered a cardiac arrest during the live broadcast of the ‘morning show’ ‘El Pirata y su banda’ from the RockFM central studios in Madrid. .
Thanks to the quick response of all colleagues in the program and the work of the emergency services in Madrid, this incident was able to come to a successful conclusion. The director of ‘El Pirata y su banda’ is stable and out of danger and is already working on his recovery to organize RockFM mornings again. Throughout the process, and gradually, he will continue to intervene in the program.
Next Monday, October 17, starting at 8:30 AM, the ‘El Pirata y su banda’ team will inform listeners in detail about what happened and will broadcast the last hour about El Pirata’s health status live on the antenna of RockFM and update rockfm. fm.
Born in 1956, El Pirata discovered rock at a very young age. “One day, two or three million years ago, my mother and I were sitting in front of the TV and they were posting some images of Jimi Hendrix in Monterrey. And he said to me, ‘That man is a genius, isn’t he? I already realize it'”, he told ‘El Mundo’ last summer in an interview. In 1971, when he was only 15 years old, he started his professional career devoted to the world of rock, within the radio station Radio Juventud.
RockFM’s flagship announcer learned the trade from another great Spanish rock legend, Vicente ‘Mariska’ Romero. The work of both would forever mark the history of national music.
Since he began his career in 1971, El Pirata has not only presented countless songs, but also interviewed the greatest myths in rock history, from AC/DC to Ringo Starr, including Iron Maiden, Scorpions, Lemmy (Motörhead), Slash of Bon Jovi .
