Danny Valenzuela

Co-Host, Latin Soul Party and Canción Mexicana

Danny Valenzuela grew up in El Paso, Texas listening to Oldies and Tejano music. After attending UTEP on a Music Scholarship and a stint in the Navy as a weatherman, he made his home in Denver because he liked the climate and the changing of the seasons. He met Carlos Lando in the mid 80's, while working as a Broadcast Engineer. In 1990, he joined KUVO as a co-host of the popular show, Canción Mexicana and started Denver's first Spanish DJ Service, Latin Nites DJ's. After ten years of hosting Canción Mexicana, he moved on and hosted The Super Tejano Show on another radio station. A year of collaboration with Carlos, KUVO's Program Director, resulted in Danny creating The Latin Soul Party.
