Mr. Medina my name is Vicente Carranza from Corpus Christi and am 81 years old. I started with our Music in the 1950’s and later with Domingo Pena. I am not a liberal or a conservative. I am a truest for a believe only the truths will make things better. Mr. Medina first I love this much needed webside of our music. But I have a question. What kind of COMMENDS do you allow? Please do not say any kind of comments. Base on true facts Tejano music—La Unda Tejana—before the year 2000 is very much alive and will always live for all new generations to come. Tejano music AFTER the year 2000 is dead. 90% of so called Tejano singers after the year 2000 do not know how to sing. They sing one song that sound good but that is it. Also 90% of all SOUND TECHNICIANS need to get another job or go to school to get better. Maybe wash their ears. Now with my comments you can answer my question what kind of comments will you except. Gracias and God bless and have a great Sat. Tlamatini-vicente carranza
