Johnny Hernandez Interview on Rancho Alegre

Monday 3/20, 9:00am

Join Rancho Alegre Radio on KOOP for part 1 of our interview with the legendary Johnny Hernandez.

We caught up with Johnny before his event with the Tejano Music Alliance of Texas at the Onion Creek Ballroom back in December 2016 and recorded an incredible in-depth interview with a man who has seen just about everything in his 50-plus years in the business. 

In this interview, we cover his life and career, beginning with his time with brothers Rocky and Joe in Little Joe and the Latinaires and later Little Joe y La Familia and his solo career as well. His career also just happens to be a great history and examination of Tejano music itself.

We also talk about his autobiography that came out last year. Johnny drew upon his experience from his earliest years through his years in Tejano music to write his autobiography, "The Cotton Picker: An Odyssey," which is available at

Tune in to Rancho Alegre on KOOP 91.7FM in Austin and online at koop.orgMonday, March 20, 2017 from 9-10 a.m.

Part 2 of this interview will air Monday March 27, 2017
