See Interesting Places Series presents Morales Funeral Home and Houston’s first Spanish language radio station
The story of the 1931 Morales Funeral Home is one of hard work, persistence, opportunity and love. Founded by Felix H. Morales and his bride, Angela, it was the first Hispanic-owned funeral home in the city, with the first female funeral director in Harris County. Among their many other accomplishments, Felix and Angela went on to found Houston’s first Spanish-language radio station, KLVL-AM. Their rags-to-riches story and dedication to the welfare and dignity of the Hispanic community have long been a source of inspiration to Latinos in Houston.
