I was only 19 years old when I discovered Selena. The first “gringo” hired on-air at Tejano radio station Hot 98FM “La Caliente” in Tucson, Arizona–I quickly learned to appreciate the music, and soon fell in the love with the woman, Selena Quintanilla.
Seemed just when I mastered learning the lyrics from “El Chico del Apartamento 512,” she was taken from us.
I could write more about what Selena meant to me…and to us…but I’d rather let the music speak.
