EPISODES OF AMERICAN ROUTES WITH MINGO SALDIVAR

FROM THE SHOW: LONE STAR STATEMENT

Conjuto accordion star Mingo Saldivar grew up in musical household in San Antonio, Texas, listening to his parents harmonize. But it wasn't just the music at home that inspired him. Check out his version of Ring of Fire in this conversation about his life as a musician.

SAN ANTONIO SOUND: MUSIC OF THE MISSION CITY

The great Texas river city is a mix of Mexican, German, Anglo and African American cultures, among others. Home to the Texas Conjunto Festival and the International Accordion Festival, San Antonio is best known for Tex-Mex or Tejano music played by squeeze box masters like Flaco Jimenez, Narciso Martinez and Mingo Saldivar among many. We'll speak with Flaco, who in collaborations with Doug Sahm, Ry Cooder, and Los Super Seven, has carried the music worldwide. "Chicano brown-eyed soul" performers like Sunny and the Sunliners and other groups describe music that connected New Orleans and Louisiana Swamp Pop with San Antonio and East Los Angeles. We'll also talk with Vox organ legend Augie Meyers who worked in the high hippie era with Doug Sahm as part of the Sir Douglas Quintet and later in the Texas Tornadoes. The conversation comes full circle with Max Baca, the leader and bajo sexto player of Los Texmaniacs who was influenced by both Flaco and Doug Sahm. The Grammy-winning family band sticks with tradition, but finds ways to include country, blues and rock. Plus music from Sam the Sham, Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, Freddie Fender and Willie Nelson. Vamos!

LONE STAR STATEMENT

Rockabilly, Western Swing, jazz, blues, Tejano, Cajun, Czech -- the big sounds of Texas are incredibly diverse. American Routes explores that vast terrain, visiting with Bandera, TX singer-songwriter Robert Earl Keen; Tejano accordion master Mingo Saldivar; and the King of Western Swing, Bob Wills, who is remembered by his fiddler Johnny Gimble, daughter Rosetta Wills, Bill Malone, Ray Price and Marle Haggard. Other musical Texans on tap include Illinois Jacquet, Townes van Zandt, and T-Bone Walker.
