While I was not 'raised' on Polka music (as so many here in South Texas have been), I must say I had a blast playing at the 3rd annual (and my 2nd-ever) Polka show at the Flag City Opry last night! Man, when you've got 3 or 4 horns (trumpets/saxes) playing along with the band, it sounds HUGE! I've come to realize that Czech/German Polka, Mexican Norteño, and much of Western Swing are all rooted in
Yesterday, a nice lady (whose name I did not get--sorry!) came by the radio station, selling homemade tamales. Now, I like them just fine, but my wife, Sweetie, just LOVES tamales! It's traditional around the Christmas season for folks to make and sell homemade tamales, most often to raise a little extra money for the Holidays.
