Episode 39: La Frontera

Selena deep cuts. Quinceañera classics. Borracho jams. We’re talking about música de la frontera this week with Yvonne Marquez – Senior Editor for Autostraddle, an awesome queer magazine where she writes about Latinx politics and culture. A native of Mission, Texas, Yvonne joins us to focus on the music of la frontera Tejana and to chat about our shared love of the Rio Grande Valley. Listen in for stories about kitchen dance parties, high school mariachi bands, and the best tamales spot in South Texas.

Check out Yvonne’s work at Autostraddle here, y disfruten!
