Paco Navarro

Written by Bernard Lopez

New York radio DJ

Paco Navarro Paco (Manuel "Paquito" Navarro) is best known for his midday DJ stint at New York Disco radio station WKTU-FM better known as "Disco 92." His favorite phrase: "Paco's my name and Disco's my game" still conjures up memories of the radio cranked up load during the 70s and early 80s especially when he hosted his Paco Supermix each weelday at 4PM where he featured such DJs as Aldo Marin and Jose "The Animal" Diaz doing their continuos Disco mixes.

Paco had been doing Spanish language radio for "La Mega" WSKU-FM the last few years, but is back doing classic Disco and dance for New York's Mix 102.7 on Saturday nights.

Late 70's, Brooklyn, P.S. 206 schoolyard, handball courts, Manhattan Beach, V-Park, 714s and 92.3 WKTU. Great times, wouldn't trade it for the world. Paco was great, as were all the KTU DJs. Great station, great times, great music.

Paquito, me traes muchos recuerdos, soy y seguire siendo un fan tuyo. Tu mix latino en N.Y. era y sigue siendo el mejor. Me arrecuerdo de los temprano ochentas en Brooklyn donde me criaron, que no me perdia tu show. Todavia me arrecuerdo tu modo, Matao, pelao mondao, y pala varilla.. Ja Ja

Mr. Paco , the best Dj in the world!! Come to Brasil and Show the real Disco Music, e lived in New York on 80's and i hear the WKTU, Paco's Supermix!!!

Elvin |

PACO brings me back to the early 80's. Loved that station!!!! I remember sitting on the back porch at my parents house, with my dad's little boom box and listen to 92.3 KTU for hours.........

Sharon |

You were the absolute best!!!! During the hey days of Disco, your station was the only one many of us listened to in the tri-state area. I even used to go to "Tropacalia", the disco that was supposedly owned by you. Still have a matchbook from there!!!! Miss that great music, but mostly your commentary! Now I have to content myself with Studio 54 on SiriusXm radio. Glad you're still doing what you do best!!!!
Long Live Disco!!!

Oscar Urena |

Hello Paco,
I would always listen to you on "92-KTU" back in the early 80's, you were my inspiration to listen to music every day. I would always wait for your signature comments "Hello, This is Paco" or "This is Paco on 92 KTU". Wow, you are a legend for those that listened to Disco 92 back in the days. I am a man now, but will always remember you on 92-KTU. You have given many people the gift of true good Disco radio listening. Have a prosperous life.
<br>
Sincerely,
<br>
Oscar

I'm from Moscow. I was 10 years old and lived in New York with my perents in 1978. And I remember this great velvet voice of DJ Paco Navarro when I listen to "Disco 92". I still have compact cassette of WKTU disco 92. Absolutely great music, mixes and sounds of commercials. Great selections of the songs like John Davies and monster orchestra or Raydio's "Jack and Jill". Paco always start very effective when he present upcoming song like : "This are the sounds of disco 92 WKTU, CCCCCerrrone, SSSSuper nature!

I used to hear the paco supermixes via german radio station rias 2. Hosted from the great barry graves.
I will never forget this great music. Paco stays the #1. Years later I got some of the mixes in poor quality but I still love them!

not really miller |

For those who wanted to hear Paco Supermix again.

take a look at You Tube and search for Latin Rascals. ;)

I added a few. ;)

stay tuned and take care

I remember growin' up listenin' to Paco on KTU. My fondest memories of Paco are when he's spin at USA Roller Rink in Jackson Heights, Queens! My l'il friends n' I would be so starstruck, lol. I remember gettin' an autographed pic from him *sigh* Roller skates, flashing lights n' Paco. That's what dreams are made of, maaan.

LuvLatins |

Anyone have any Studio 92 WKTU master mixes from the mid 70s or DJ Ted Currier mastermixes willing to buy them.

ralph13 |

Father Time, DJ in jail too didnt like him much.

dan |

Does any one have copies of the Paco's super mixes for sale or copy. I loved the lunch break 92 super mix.

thanks

Hello everyone! I was living in New York from 1973 till 1978.I'm russian, from Moscow. I still have disco 92 WKTU on cassette tape. It's amazing record. I don't know for sure who's DJ voice there, but it's deep, almost baritone and effective. Maybe it's Paco Navarro or somebody else /I wonder who it was?/ but the voice saying: "This are the sounds of Disco 92 WKTU, Cerrone SSSSSuper nature". Who could it be? With respect Andrew Kobysh

PATRICKSANCHEZ |

Tommy C |

I used to work in a Video Arcade in Hoboken, NJ in the late 70's early 80's and man I used to crank the radio to 92 KTU whenever PACO was on and everybody would get down poppin and dancing like only us BORIQUAS know how. PACO I miss your great mixes and would love the opportunity to acquire as many as I can. Let me know if they are available at my email address.

My recollections of paco;
This is Paco baby on 92-WKTU or This is Paco.....
He is a legend in NY Radio!!!
Brings back memories of being a student at Brooklyn Tech in the early 80'.s.....ah, yes!

EDWIN KOHN |

i remember (beside the mixes)PACO SIGNING OFF/ON SAYING "THE NUMBER 1 LATIN IN MANHATTEN"

Eddie |

I remember Paco then, and I still listen to him today. He has one of, if not, the most recognizable voices in New York City radio history. I still enjoy hearing his voice at the Copacabana where he hosts the latin nights. If anyone has recordings of Paco's Supermix, I would gladly pay a fee for a copy.
God bless Paco and his 92 KTU compadres :0)

Paco from Brazil |

Paco:

When Paco was on the air, you were sure to receive Mix Shows from Aldo Marin and Jose "The Animal" Diaz.

Don't forget, the deep voice on 92 KTU brought to you by "Paco's Panties"!

Paco, may your years extend with the passion brought on your listeners.

One Love,

The Lord Of Flatbush
