John Garcia was born in a log cabin somewhere along the Medina River. He was educated at the school of hard knocks and trained in the martial laws of the hill country. Most of his time as an adult was spent raising cane and sprouts out on the left coast. Now he is just raising hell on Pure SAN Antonio Talk.com That, and he flies a mean kite now and again
I was born in a log cabin in the middle of August, in the town of San Antonio. From an early age; I had to walk to school in the snow. Uphill both ways.
I ended up at Luther Burbank where I learned how to feed pigs and ride horses, which prepared me to go to San Antonio college where I took RTF. I learned quick and was off to west coast. I hung out with celebrities and did TV, radio, wrote songs and sang in the Lorne Radford Band.
I returned to Texas and pursued radio, acted and wrangled in a few movies and television shows, so I, naturally gravitated to becoming a Texas Peace Officer. I made a career of it, retired, became a body guard and all the while, continued to be a a cast member on the Big Tortilla Morning Show.
The End...or is it?!

In addition to a passion for sports, her four-leggedchildren — Boxers puppies Katie and Jake — keep her on her toes and sometimes at the ER.!
