Biographical Sketch

Robert P. Rodriguez* was born on June 7, 1944 in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Robert grew up in Round Rock, Texas but traveled back and forth between Round Rock and Monterrey during his childhood and began playing guitar when he was twelve years old. He eventually settled in Round Rock in 1962.

In 1982, Robert met and later married Charlotte "Sugar" Castillo, who became his life-long partner when Mr. Rodriguez decided to do something about promoting Tejano music.

In 1985, Mr. Rodriguez took camera and editing classes at Austin Community Television (ACTV) and in 1986 began producing two Tejano music shows: Estamos en Tejas and Live from Austin, Tejas (the shows aired in ACTV Channel 10). Mr. Rodriguez produced and hosted both shows and Sugar worked alongside him as camera operator. Other crew members included: Balta Alvarez (technical director of both shows in 1992), Armando Ibarra, "Fabacker" Garcia, Art Trevino, Jesse Amaro, Alex Villagomez and Freddie Galvan.

Mr. Rodriguez originally contacted Willie Cisneros, the manager of Amigos Night Club in east Austin, about the possibility of recording musicians at the club. They were able to reach an agreement and Mr. Rodriguez began recording live performances at Amigos for Live from Austin, Tejas. Eventually, Mr. Rodriguez also began recording performances at other local music venues and at other events such as South by Southwest (SXSW), Aqua Fest, Texas Sky Fest, and the Tejano Music Awards (TMA).

In June 2012, Mr. Rodriguez was honored by the Austin Latino Music Association (ALMA) as part of its Sonidos del Barrio Showcase in recognition of his efforts to promote Tejano music. Robert Rodriguez died on June 2013, at the age of 69. He was survived by his wife Sugar Rodriguez.

*His name sometimes appears as Robert Rodriguez Rodd or Robert Rodd Rodriguez.
