Remembering Doug Sahm…

15 years ago today Doug Sahm left this physical world. He left us all with a great gift of music to enjoy for our life times. He touched so many lives either with chats over baseball, playing music that took us to a groovy place, or just sharing some enchiladas. Keep the groove going! Listen to some Doug Sahm music today to let him know we are still thinking of him.10451703_10153525724981686_1691751447180167355_n
