Public Advocacy on U.S. Spanish-Language Radio
This introductory chapter presents Governor Bill Richardson's announcement of his U.S. presidential candidacy through a Spanish-language radio station. This declaration set the stage for the contested public courtship of what the English-language media termed the “Latino vote.” On that note, the book highlights how U.S. Spanish-language radio, across the twentieth century, has capitalized on the conversation around immigration. Spanish-language radio stations, on both commercial and community bandwidths, organize the majority of their daily programming around the ongoing politics of citizenship, immigration, and the fate of immigration reform. They mediate the sensitive relationship between Latinos as listeners and the various manifestations of state or government power.
