Sounds of Belonging

Dolores Inés Casillas

NYU Press

This concluding chapter argues that despite Spanish-language radio's momentous growth, particularly since the 1980s, it continues to lack parity, in revenue or status, with its fellow English-language peers. The reluctance of the landscape of commercial U.S. radio to accommodate Spanish-language radio and its Latino listenership as equal peers reflects the larger economic marginalization of racialized bodies within U.S. capitalism. In addition, the social and institutional marginalization of U.S. Latinos signals the importance and necessity for more population-sensitive research methods. Given the apprehensiveness experienced by U.S. Latinos to government and research entities, surveys and statistical samples are often statistically weighted to account for disproportionate samples.

Keywords:   Spanish-language radio, Latino listenership, economic marginalization, racialized bodies, U.S. capitalism
