Developing Bilingual Chicano Radio, 1960s-1980s
This chapter focuses on development of Chicano radio stations. In 1972, late senator Ted Kennedy sponsored the first bilingual community radio station, the KBBF-FM or La Voz del Pueblo (The People's Voice), which broadcasts from Santa Rosa, California to ten northern California counties. Its development paved the way for two other key bilingual community radio stations—Radio Cadena (Yakima, WA) and Radio Bilingüe (Fresno, CA)—to join the increasingly diverse FM airwaves. These community-based bilingual radio stations gave voice to uncounted rural community Chicanos who strove for a representation of their experiences within U.S. borders, as well as in their everyday Spanglish language.
