>The late, great, MR. LALO GUERRERO ~ THE GODFATHER OF CHICANO MUSIC < In concert in Los Angeles, 2002

Although some radio stations call any song over 5 years old "Oldies" or "Old School", not all of them are "Goodies", or something you want to hear over & over. Below are some cool links to some cool spots where "cool" is a state of mind. R & B was originally "Rythym & Blues", not the stuff you hear today, which is better termed "Hip-hop". Unfairly labeled "street music" by fans of other genres , (especially hard rock fans, who can't dance or romance to save their lives), the cruising Oldies but Goodies & mellow west coast Latin Soul take you back to the day when combing your hair,  puttin' on make up & lookin' good, and "tirando chancla"  was an art!

  Speaking of Art, nobody does the  Arts like the Gente. check out other areas of the Brown world
