R.I.P. Freddy Fender

We were sad at the "blog" to hear that Freddy Fender has passed away. Theresa chipped in with my sister and folks to get me a new turntable for my birthday a few months ago. For whatever reason, the first thing Theresa and I dug out to play was an old Freddy Fender record. His voice just goes with crackling vinyl... so odd, lonesome and mysterious, kind of like a coyote. We miss you, Freddy Fender!
