The complaint was dismissed as “ridiculous” by station manager A.N. Meineke, who viewed the formal action as part of the national mood of dissent. “Protesting now is in vogue across the country and if it wasn’t, this would not have happened,” Meintíce remarked, a d d i n g he believed the letter would be the first FCC complaint in the 24-year history of the station. The complaint was prepared by San Antonio attorney Pete Tijerina, legal counsel for Involvement of Mexican-Amm- cans in Gainful Endeavors (IMAGE) and a consulting attorney with the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Educational Fund. Uvalde residents submitting the complaint are Gabriel Taf- fola, Genoveva Morales, Mario Torres, Gilberto Z. Torres, Josué Garza Jr. and Abelardo Castillo, all of whom are associated with IMAGE. The “skeleton” grievances listed in the letter include claims that the ovK’all pix^am- ming of the station “is irrelevant and non-responsive to the social, economic and educational needs” of Mexican-Americans who comprise about 50 per cent of the listening audience. Other allegations claim the station has here by Mexican-American stu dents, adding that “very little cooperation was extended to Mexican-Americans attempting to have their viewpoints aired over the station.” He said complaints by local residents have' been brewing “for some time.” Calderon said the complaint is the first to be filed with IMAGE support in an attempt “to make broadcasters more responsive to the legitimate needs of the Chicano population.” Calderon noted that the media! often depict Mexican-Americans in a “distorted and unfavorable image while almost ignoring positive contributions.” The IMAGE spokesman said the broadcast industry has the power to help ethnic minorities achieve the promises of the American way of life and said, “stations are failing in their duties when they won’t help bring about constructive social change.” The formal action comes only weeks after KVOU filed an application to increase its daytime broadcasting power from 250 watts to 1,000 watts. The station license renewal will be reviewed next year, according to IMAGE spokesmen, and the complaints are expected to receive close attention at that time. i Meineke categorically denied! all the specifics of the complaint | and p 0 i n t e d out that Spanish music and news are broadcast for three and one-half hours, six afternoons a week.
