Historical Note

Created by the Institute of Latin American Studies, the Latin American Review radio program was broadcast as part of the Longhorn Radio Network. Covering all of Latin America and the Caribbean, the program aired from 1973 to 1984. The program was primarily diveded into two segments, a news segment, dealing with reports from different parts of Latin America, and an interview segment, in which an individual or small group was interviewed. A diverse number of topics were covered including human rights abuses, economic conditions, music, popular culture, and the history and politics of the region. Originally airing as the Latin American Press Review the program had its title changed in 1976 to Latin American Review.
