I met a DJPosted: June 14, 2010
I was at my parish for a fundraiser where I met a DJ. I thought I would ask him to play some Conjunto music. I requested Los Dos Gilbertos, Ruben Vela, or Angel Flores. Unfortunately he did not have any of those (except Coco Rayado and La Papaya by Don Ruben). I was disappointed but not surprised. He had a lot of “Tejano” songs…The Hometown Boys and Jaime y Los Chamacos was about as Conjunto as his play list got. So what did I do? I invited him to join Conjunto is Life of course! This way he can learn a little about Conjunto music and he would be prepared when someone, like me, asks for Ruben Naranjo!
