Condolences to the family and friends of CARLOS DE JESUS, best known for his time programming and on the air at WKTU/NEW YORK in the late '70s and early '80s, who passed away earlier this week.
DAVID HINKLEY wrote in THE DAILY NEWS that "one of the brightest voices of radio's disco era in NEW YORK, died MONDAY. Along with PACO, ROSKO, FREDDIE COLON, JOE CAUSI, AL BANDIERO and others, DE JESUS was part of the deejay team at WKTU, DISCO 92.3."
DE JESUS helped break rap on commercial radio, spinning SUGAR HILL GANG's "Rapper’s Delight" on KTU.
