Crosno died in his home in Las Cruces after a battle with cancer.
Crosno was one of the most popular DJs ever in El Paso. His TV show, “The Crosno Hop,” aired in the 1960s, '70s and '80s.
His radio show, called “Cruising with Crosno,” still was airing recently on Sunday afternoons in Southern New Mexico. The format remained the same: oldies, Spanish songs and nonstop skits.
