From San Antonio Rose to San Antonio Girl, there are a fair share of songs about our beloved city. I’ve wanted to do a series on San Antonio songs for quite a while. Songs that are entirely about the city or just reference it in one line. Songs by native sons and daughters, or simply one heard at a as an artist passed through.
Recently, SA Flavor has recently welcomed aboard a new writer to cover music. A member of the local group The Cinderleaf for twenty plus years, Andy Pape knows a thing or two about music. And his ability to wax poetic about it is unparalleled, so I’m happy to work with Andy on this collaboration.
Each week we’ll take turns writing about one of our favorites. Sometimes we may go deeper into the story behind the songs, other times we may just relay a particular personal story. I’m looking forward to learning a thing or two from Andy and to find a few new tunes. Along the way, I’ll update a Spotify playlist that features all the songs mentioned in this series.
Along the way if you have any suggestions for songs—or even may want to submit your own story—drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay tuned and rock on!
