Que Pasa has changed formats, BUT there is a new Tejano Station in the RGV, Super Tejano 102.1.
Border Media launches the Rio Grande Valley’s newest station, “Super Tejano — Where Tejano Lives,” replacing Rhythmic Country KPRR-FM on 102.1 and Adult Hits KZSP-FM on 95.3. The station began broadcasting its new Tejano format on August 15 and targets Adults 25-54

According to the article in Abilene Reporter News they are playing a 75/25 ratio of Tejano to Mainstream Country, and it seems to be going over very well with the fans. Click HERE to read the article.

All I know is what I’ve read in some reposts on My Space bulletins. I don’t know who posted the original post. so I haven’t been able to confirm it. This is what I’ve seen reposted:

As you can see the post does not mention a starting date, so I guess all we can do is tune in on Sundays to see if they are playing Tejano Music.

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.
