David Lee Garza and Mike Torres III have teamed up to co-host a new podcast that will showcase classic Tejano albums.

“Listening Back with DLG and MT III” launched in January to record and help preserve the history of Tejano and Chicano music.

“You can go to any library in town and check out twenty books on the history of jazz and the history of rock’n’roll, or any kind of music that had a big mark in the American music industry and you can’t find that for Tejano,” Torres told Tejano Nation.

Torres, co-leader of La 45 and former musician with Little Joe Y La Familia, felt that his career as a Tejano musician put him in a unique position to document the careers of many of his peers and legendary musicians.

“I get to talk to these people very candidly,” he said. “I got to talk to people who were there, who did it, who were involved and I get to hear their stories.”

Garza became a part of the podcast when Torres thought of who else would be interested in speaking on the history of Tejano music.

“He’s a historian too,” said Torres. “He loves the story, he loves hearing who was on the album and how they were made. I know he’s a big fan of all eras of Tejano and Chicano music, and he also has a lot of connections, everybody knows him.”

The podcast has already featured classic albums from Little Joe, Conjunto Bernal, and Los Unicos. Upcoming episodes will also feature guests, including singers, musicians, and producers of the classic albums featured to give more insight into their history.

“Hopefully people will be able to get some insight into some of these musicians, some of these albums and really into the growth of our music.”
