Could San Antonio military bases be on the chopping block in a future round of federal military cuts?  It’s something the city wants to protect against.   How to do that was part of the conversation when a Texas legislative committee met in San Antonio Monday.

In the next two years, the federal government’s Base Realignment And Closure process - or BRAC - may close or reassign military installations across the country. San Antonio remembers what happened in 1995 when the BRAC process resulted in the closing of Kelly Air Force Base.

From a glance, Josh Glenn seems like your average folk musician. He has the requisite handsome beard and flannel shirt. While getting ready to perform in our B40 studio, he takes out his seasoned guitar and pedal assembly, connects them to an audio recorder, and starts playing various chords that are interrupted by a silence or an occasional bang on the body of his guitar. I am left very confused. Do all of his songs sound like this? They do. At the end of the performance, Josh can tell how puzzled I am and laughs.

The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center focuses on one particular kind of dance this weekend. It's a dance whose origins are long ago and far away. Here's the Guadalupe's Belinda Menchaca.

"It actually comes from the southern region of Spain--Andalusia, and is influenced   by Arabic music and comes from the gypsies, and of course, it has evolved, and I think that is why it is so vibrant today."

She's talking of course about Flamenco.
