Sonny Got His Big Break


Sonny Melendrez was a fixture of San Antonio’s Radio scene. He was morning jock on KTFM and was incredibly popular. But he had bigger aspirations and hopes for bigger breaks, hopes that stretched all the way back to his childhood home on San Antonio’s west side. 

This track was recorded at the March 7, 2017 Worth Repeating with the theme "Big Breaks and Busts" Worth Repeating is Texas Public Radio's live storytelling event series.
