S1 E7: The Legends: Freddy Fender

By the mid 1970s, Freddie Fender--born Baldemar Huerta--had become a darling of television variety shows after nearly two decades of battling discrimination and his own demons. Between 1974 and 1983 Freddie Fender had 21 songs on the Country music charts – many with Spanish lyrics. LATIN MUSIC USA airs Friday, April 28 at 9/8C on PBS (check local listings).
