KIJN sponsors Spanish concert
KIJN Christian radio of Farwell will stage a New Year’s Spanish Christian concert featuring three area bands at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday at St. Helen’s Catholic Church.
Mike Rodriguez, general manager of KIJN said, “ What this is is Christian outreach. I would encourage people to attend that are not Catholic, mainly to promote Christian unity.”
The three groups will feature three distinct styles of Spanish music for Christ. Julissa Villarreal y Grupo La Descendencia will play grupero/cumbias. Trino Paiz of Abilene, Texas, will bring along his accordion to squeeze out Tejano Christian music and El Shaddai will play contemporary Christian tunes.
KIJN has English programming at 92.3 FM and Spanish programming at 1060 AM on the radio dial. Rodriguez said the radio station has been hosting concerts every month at different churches or public venues in the area since September of 2004.
