Welcome to tiny curations, this is the 20th episode(s). This is also the 20th year of the passing of Sir Doug Sahm on November 18, 1999. Today we will be playing some of his music to celebrate. And some from his time with the Tex-Mex supergroup, the Texas Tornados. This is also a very special episode because, we are lucky enough to be joined by Sir Doug’s oldest son, Shawn Sahm. Welcome. And you are also bearing the torch and celebrating the legacy of your father in your own way, by now fronting the Texas Tornados.
Interview with Shawn Sahm: You were born into this, you were destined to have a career in music, you are on the “Cover of a Rolling Stone” with your father at a very early age. Can you tell us a little about that? I’m sure that you have said it all before. But on this anniversary of your fathers passing, is there anything that you want to say about him and his legacy now?
