Galilea and Jackie Garcia had their own segments discussing health and beauty tips. Carlos Gallegos "El Inspector" often showed his investigations on corruption, crimes and other city problems.

Every day, they offered a variety of fresh material and during special events like Elvis Presley birthday, every one on the show wore rock-n-roll costumes.[2]
