I've been reading about XERF the monster station from Acuna, Mexico that sent the Carter Family and others into everybody's radio who had one from Texas to Alberta in the 1930's...............I'm interested in how it cut in the other direction. You could probably get that station from Mexico to the moutains of Venezuela and the whole Carribean, but I can't find any history...Who grew up on the Carter family on the radio in that region?................anybody got anything?
thanks
seth from olytown

You might want to take a look at Border Radio by Gene Fowler and Bill Crawford. Texas UP. 2002. I've never read it but it looks like a pretty reliable book.
