“Tejano has moved” part III

Turntable Records, now located behind Penn Field on Woodbury between Alpine off South Congress and Ben White, has much more space than it did when it was in the little Golden Slipper center on West Mary. Turntable still stocks the same turntables and DJ gear that it has carried for over 19 years and there’s now an even fuller selection of hip-hop and Latin music of all kinds, including a very broad array of Tejano and conjunto music.

Now that new Tejano and conjunto releases aren’t receiving air play around here, Turntable is the best bet for hearing the latest. The owner gladly plays any request, and he’s generally there to do so every day of the week but Sunday, from 10 am to 9 pm.

Turntable is a good place to find the latest issue of Arriba Art & Business News, which has printed a new open letter by Julian Limon Fernandez (11/23/05 issue, page 8). It’s addressed to Univision and to Border Music Productions, which between them now hold the licenses for the local stations broadcasting in Spanish.

In a way, this is a follow-up post to “Tejano has moved” and “Tejano has moved” part II. On Saturday afternoon, everybody in the store was talking about the radio situation. This is an issue that isn’t going to disappear.
