KROQ-FM/Los Angeles launches "Alternalido," a new Latin alternative show. The English-language program, curated and hosted by local DJ Anthony Valadez, will feature a broad mix of alternative sounds from Latin artists around the world like Chicano Batman, Omar Apollo, Cuco, Ambar Lucid, Helado Negro and more. "Alternalido" will air Sunday nights from 8-10pm, beginning May 17.

"Los Angeles is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the United States and we're excited to broaden our sound to reflect the musical tastes of our community," said Entercom Regional President Jeff Federman. "‘Alternalido' will feature some of the biggest Latino music stars to help listeners close out their weekends on a high note."

"Alternalido is a blank cassette tape waiting to be filled with the vibrant and global sounds from Latin America," added Valadez. "I'm excited to share sounds that are bold, daring and different from many of these amazing artists. Latin alternative is not just one genre but a plethora of many. It's Anthony Bourdain behind the turntables introducing you to a sonic ingredient that could change your life."

Anthony Valadez hosted weekly radio programs on KCRW-FM, KPFK-FM and KCSN-FM in Los Angeles for the past 20 years. Voted "Best DJ" by LA Weekly in 2016, he has also hosted and produced programming for TuneIn, FuseTV and Dash Radio, among others.
