Friday Night Video Roadtrip

30 October 2009

On the Road with Lola and Lucha. Cars were bigger back in the early 1960s when Sinaloa’s queen of the rancheras, Lola Beltran (born 24 March 1932 in Rosario) and Lucha Villa could cruise the streets in a BelAire convertible with an entire orchestra hidden in the back seat.

From Miguel Delgado’s 1964 México en mi corazón

    I think that’s actually Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles. I recognized Bullocks Wilshire, among other landmarks.

      You are correct! Yikes… I think I know what I threw me, but then a lot of urban streets in the 60s looked alike. I realized there’s no curve on Insurgentes like that in the clip, but then again, I wasn’t on cruising down the road in the early 60s and the streets have changed since then.

      Good catch, and an easy fix.
