WESLACO - One Valley man has his own weekly television show that airs locally, a radio broadcast that airs nation-wide, and another radio show for a station in San Antonio.

Lupe Saenz does it all; he's cameraman, producer, writer and even talent.

His TV show is about showcasing conjunto music, a Hispanic tradition that he believes is being lost.

He also has a radio show on the internet that plays across the United States.

Plus he also does a weekly radio show in San Antonio.

In his teenage years he was a migrant farm worker, and for a while he was a radio disc-jockey on a Valley radio station.

On the final segment of his show he changes to his military hat to talk to the veterans.

His television show airs every Sunday at 8:30 a.m.
