Rosita Fernandez, 1918-2006

















Thanks, Rosita, for your time with us.

The death of Rosita Fernandez, San Antonio's "first lady of song," is front page news in that Texas city. She was 88. This enchanting recording for the Conjunto Ideal label was made in 1950. It can be found on Tejano Roots: The Women, from the indispensible Arhoolie label. A very attractive woman, Fernandez later appeared in several Hollywood features.

I can always count on finding a great mp3 post here each time you load one up online.

Oh how I miss talking with Independent record sellers and the people who buy them.

Bless all who put together mp3 blogs out of the sheer love for some decent and good in this mean old world.

Thanks for Rosita today. Salute!
