"My dream to create an information resource for Tejano music
fans came to life in January 2000. Through the use of the
Internet, I have been able to reach Tejanos around the world.  
Creating has been a challenge, but it also
has given me the opportunity to experience many new and
exciting Tejano events.  I've met some pretty interesting
characters along the way. My work experience includes both
audio and video production and website design. My photography
focuses on special events and concert photography. I also produce
internet broadcast programming for the TejanoEntertainment
Network, maintaining the website,
marketing Tejano related products and services on the Tejano
Market Place, and creating new video programming for TMTv -
Tejano Music Television. I also created XapFM Internet Radio
station which features both Tejano, Oldies and Hot Country hits.
XaoFM features 32 channels of different music genres and
currently features 310 hours of original programming .. all
available on demnd. has allowed me to put Latin/ tejano
music in places where there never has been broadcast facilities
with Hispanic programming. I am also the owner of XapFM
Internet Radio which has a worldwide audience.  Away from this,
I own and operate J.D.Zapata & Associates, a minority business
enterprise, whichspecializes in highway and road engineering
design.  Photography, music and my robot collection are among
my hobbies.  Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas,"I am here ..
in the Capitol of Tejano music." - John D Zapata
