Manuel Hernandez: Abilene’s Spanish Broadcasting Pioneer

In the 1950s and early 1960s Hispanics in Abilene did not have their own local Spanish language broadcasting programs on radio or television as they do today. But Abilene native Manuel Hernandez was getting ready to change that. As Abilene’s Hispanic broadcasting pioneer he came to be known as "West Texas’ most popular Spanish disk jockey." Hernandez describes the circumstances, "Back then the radio stations did not want Spanish broadcasting in Abilene". Hernandez was told that in order to broadcast on the radio, he would have to obtain a broadcasting license. "That was one of the problems for Hispanics wanting to get in the industry in Abilene; no one had a license to broadcast".
