Frontera progress and press conference

Los Tigres del Norte, the UCLA Chicano Research Center, the UCLA Digital Music Library and the Arhoolie Foundation are holding a press conference on March 26th at 10 AM. This event, to be held on the UCLA campus, celebrates the completion of digitizing part I (over 32,000 recordings from 78 rpm discs) of the Frontera Collection of Mexican and Mexican-American commercial recordings dating roughly from 1908 – 1958 (or the end of 78s). The Frontera Collection and UCLA’s Frontera website was mentioned in Billboard Magazine’s on-line business column.
