Thanks to all who listened to my radio show, Discos Inmigrantes last week as we explored the Chicano influence around the world. On April 24th, Discos Inmigrantes returns for another edition as we continue explore the Chicano influence on the rest of the world with a special guest from Japan. Shin Miyata is the owner of Barrio Gold Records in Japan and is responsible for bringing Chicano cultura to Japanese people. He will play some great Chicano gems from his vast collection of 7" singles
You can hear Discos Inmigrantes live on April 24th from 8pm-10pm PST on radiosombra.org
