Razorcake Podcast #591 with Yvonne Drazan | The Left Side of Latin: Club Rock En Español, 30th Anniversary

Thirty years ago, on October 21st, 1988, my sister from another mister Flora and I started an organization called Club Rock En Español.  It was meant to be a fan club to trade records and meet other fans and it turned into a life-changing adventure that kick started a musical scene in Los Angeles.  As guests on this edition of my podcast are the aforementioned Flora who started this whole thing by my side; Alma Diaz, who we met co-promoting a show a few years into CREE and became our sidekick even to this day; and finally Roberto Corrales who was CREE member #2, the guitar player for many a local band, our official location scout for shows and one of our very best friends.
