I found this at http://elpasomusicians.blogspot.com/2008/04/steve-crosno-kelp-paper.html

They write:

There was probably nobody else in El Paso that
helped musicians as much as Steve did. He had the Crosno
Hop on TV, along with his daily DJ radio shows. On his

on to bigger and better things. Steve passed away and will be
sadly missed by those that knew him. By Rick Kern

It was just one of those odd things that I find myself recalling from our collective, odd Northeast El Paso heritage. Crosno used to have a live TV show called Crosno”s Hop and remember watching my brother, David do the Bop with his slicked back, Brylcreemed ducktails and thin, thin belt holding up a tight pair of buttoned up Levi’s. Too cool. — Don Dungan ‘67 June 11, 2007

But with friends his sense of humor often ranged wider and deeper than he usually allowed in public. Irony, sarcasm, the absurd, the bizarre – he relished them all, as I did.
