Guadalupe Jamaica 2008

Guadalupe Jamaica 2008

  • If you were disappointed that the second-day program for the Fiestas Patrias was cancelled this year, get ready for the Jamaica this Sunday at Nuestra Senora de / Our Lady of Guadalupe. The Hometown Boys, who don’t get down this way very often, will play at 6:30, followed by headliners and local favorites Little Joe y La Familia at 8. Admission is just five dollars, starting at noon, free before then. This is a great even for children. There’s music all day, plus food, raffles, games, and more.
  • There will be another jamaica on Saturday, this one at San Jose, just off South Congress. There will be food, games, prizes, and music. I know that one band will be coming up from San Antonio, but I haven’t been able to find any posters about the event; I’ve just heard about it on the radio, and the parish’s Web site is temporarily down.
  • Tejano radio KTXZ 1560-AM is at last simulcasting on the FM dial at 95.1, a boon for those who’ve been having trouble with reception on the AM band.
  • Also up this week is Hacienda Radio, streaming courtesy of the fabled Texas recording label with its long list of famous artists. Listeners have a choice of Tejano, conjunto, Mexican popular, and cumbia and hip-hop artists.
