Rock ‘n’ Roll Roots:
“Most of what I remember about those days was traveling around in a van with no

into these little dives and scream my head off singing Pat Benatar.”

  1. Good Morning Martina,well i have done everything i know to tell everyone that “I’m A Big Martina Fan” I have emailed Country music DJ’s or went on their FB page in over 200 stations across the South and mid west. I know you are headed to San Antonio,TX and I promise the people of Texas love you and are looking forward to seeing you in concert. I hope someday we can get you back in Corpus Christi,TX. From your biggest fan in South Texas,Frank
