The unlikely victory of the Mexican army over French forces on May 5th, 1862 started the tradition of celebrating Mexican heritage and pride. Joan "Tunes" Downham is ready to provide the bandas, marimbas, romantica and polka (even in Spanish, a polka is still 'polka' :p). "Most of the music I'm playing I actually picked up while in Mexico," Joan said in her shoes that were made in San Miguel de Allende. "I bought them for the box, which has a beautiful picture of the church." That's right, she basically bought a $40 box! Tune in and enjoy our Cinco De Mayo special with Joan on 91.7 KAXE.
