[Letter from William B. Ray to Mario Marcel Salas - December 9, 1974]

Description: Letter from William B. Ray, chief of the Complaints and Compliance Division of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), to Mario Marcel Salas, president of the Black Coalition on Mass Media. The letter was sent in response to a formal complaint filed by Mr. Marcel over a failed negotiation with KAPE radio, a San Antonio-based radio station. However, it appears that Mr. Ray did not receive a specific enough complaint, and explains the course of action that needs to occur before the FCC gets involved.
