George Strait being played on Tejano Radio?

George Strait’s latest CD includes the song “El Rey” and Jonny Ramirez has been playing it on KXTN.  Click on the image to go to the Jonny Ramirez in the Morning website to listen to it.

George Strait

“I’ve loved mariachi music for years, and although I’m not fluent in Spanish, I’ve been trying to get better,” Strait says. “‘El Rey’ has been a favorite song of mine for years, and I request it every chance I get. So I decided to give it a shot. What a blast that was. I had a version by the great Vicente Fernandez. I played it for the guys, and we worked it out. I think it turned out great, and I hope the real mariachis like it. That will be the real test.”

Title: Twang
Release date: 11 August, 2009
Record label: MCA Nashville

Tejano airplay on the rise in the Rio Grande Valley…. new FM Tejano station… and Que Pasa 99.5 “going Puro Tejano”?

I had read a few weeks ago that there was a new Tejano FM station in the RGV called Tejano Powerhouse.  I was going to put the info on here, but unfortunately the post that I read it on scrolled off the board (Tejano Journal).  Since then I’ve seen a couple of people post that they listened to it and that it sounded good, but no information about what type of Tejano format it has, nor the call letters or where it is on the dial, so if you live in the Valley , you’ll just have to search the dial to see if you can find it.  If I find out any more information, I’ll post it here.

                                                               In the meantime, I’m reading reports on the Tejano Journal that Que Pasa 99.5 in McAllen (which had been playing a mix of Tejano and Regional Mexican), has “gone Tejano”.   There is a slogan on their website that reads Your Numero Uno For Tejano,  and I’ve checked their playlist on yes.com  and it does indeed look like they are now playing about 90% Tejano , (that is for those of us who include International Tejano,  and Tejano Norteno Hybrid music along with the “Puro Tejano”, in our defintition of Tejano) but still  throwing a tad of Regional Mexican.   This “inclusive” playlist, playing a VARIETY of Tejano music, the kind of variety like we used to hear on Tejano Radio back in the 90s,  (and I don’t even mind a smattering of Regional Mexican)  , in my opinion is the way all Tejano stations need to go, because in the past few years the stations which have been lost are the ones who tried to narrow the definition of Tejano Music , causing fans to tune out, especially those of us who came on board during the “Glory Days of the 90s”.   The larger the audience, the more people will be exposed to La Onda, to all of it.

Tejano back on the airwaves in Austin as of today 9-29-2008, and a little more info on the “New” Tejano FM station in Houston….

I’ve got to say that it’s a little frustrating how vague the information is about both of these stations, but here is what I have gathered so far.

Tejano Music is now being played on KTXZ 1560 AM in Austin, and I’m not sure if it is already being simulcast on 95.1 FM yet, not finding much information online.  The only information I have found was at Radio Online, which you can read by clicking HERE  (I’d copy it but it says not to reproduce in any form ;-)    )

Now on the Houston station, what I am gathering from posts on the Tejano Journal and Univision’s Tejano 980 message board, is that basicly Tejano 980 (whose signal has been sold) is just moving to another Univision station that happens to be an FM signal,  105.3 FM , which according to reports is as weak as the AM signal , but oh well, at least there will still be a Tejano Station in Houston after 980 goes to another format.

New Tejano FM station in Houston !

 

Someone had posted on the Tejano Journal that Houston was going to be getting a new FM station, and I had heard that it was already broadcasting, but I don’t live in Houston so that’s all I know . If you live in Houston, check it out, you can also click here to go to their new MySpace.
