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.
This year’s “Fiesta de Las Flores” in El Paso will actually be two competing fiestas. There was a split because apparently because of disputes on where the event should be held. One will be at the El Paso County Colesium, the other at Cohen Stadium. La Mafia and Michael Salgado will be appearing at the event Colesium on 8-31-2008 , while Little Joe will be appearing at the Cohen Stadium event the next day on 9-1-2008.

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.
