In honor of the 200th anniversary of the end of the Mexican War of Independence, a special hour of Mexican music hosted by Luis Alejandro Vallebueno with guests Gabriela Ortíz and “Uncle Bill” Tilford  will air on WRMI with support from Grupo DX México.   It will be in Spanish and directed towards Central and South America, but the back end of the transmission should be listenable in most of North America and parts of Western Europe and Africa.  The music will be a combination of world-famous artists and others probably not known outside of Mexico.  There will also be some items regarding history, customs and shortwave in Mexico including  special appearances by a veteran of  Radio México Internacional (aka XERMX in its days on shortwave)  and a long-time member of Grupo DX México.
