Abstract:

Elsa Garcia begins with her family's background and the singing career of her mother, Hermelinda Escamilla, known as Linda la Norteña. She describes the beginnings of her husband's band playing popular music, her own involvement, and its evolution into a Tejano band. She shares details of her musical inspiration and attributes her success at juggling school, work, and music to her family's support. She furnishes details of her brief job as a radio disk jockey and elaborates on her work as a talk show host for two Houston area radio stations. She discusses Mexican immigration into the U.S., remarks on the growth of the Hispanic population in the United States, and comments on ethnic neighborhoods in Houston. She blames the poor reception of Tejano musicians in Mexico on their lack of fluency in the Spanish language and cites Selena's experience with the Mexican press as proof. She predicts the band's tour plans, including performances across northern Mexico for the Navidad en el Barrio (Christmas in the Neighborhood) toy drive. She recalls an interview she conducted with Linda Ronstadt and mentions songwriter Fernando Z. Maldonado.
