Del Santo was a purveyor of country and bluegrass when he moved to Austin from his native New York in 1974. He quickly formed the Professors of Pleasure and began his evolution from country and bluegrass into jazz and blues and outward. In 1979 he appeared on Austin City Limits, but his interests were taking a 180-degree turn. He ruled the airwaves of KUT with his World Beat show, originating the term and acting as its major proponent. The phrase "world beat" was quickly picked up and brought Del Santo a measure of fame, but life as a musician made it difficult to support a family of three kids, and Del Santo supplemented his income selling marijuana. His well-publicized bust in 1992 saw the end of his musical career in the States when he fled the country rather than be railroaded by the justice system.
