Joe Nick Patoski is our guide through the music of Texas — from western swing to zydeco to Tex-Mex.

Patoski (@joenickpatoski) hosts the "Texas Music Hour of Power" out of Marfa Public Radio, and tells Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson about why he believes in "salvation through Texas music."

Note: We have a Spotify playlist and an Apple Music playlist for our weekly DJ Sessions.
